Manchester United is delighted to announce that Teden Mengi has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.

Mengi is a product of the club’s famed Academy and has been at United since the age of seven.

The 18-year-old, who made his debut in last season’s Europa League tie against LASK at Old Trafford, was promoted to the senior squad at the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

During the first half of the season, Mengi trained with the first-team squad whilst featuring 10 times for Neil Wood’s Under-23s side.

The Manchester-born prospect joined Derby County on loan in the January transfer window and has already made six appearances for the Rams, relishing the opportunity to work under United’s all-time leading goalscorer, Wayne Rooney.

The England Under-19 international has captained United throughout the age groups and has been regularly praised for his mentality.

The Academy graduate is the third United player to sign a long-term contract this week following on from Hannibal and Anthony Elanga.

Mengi will be looking to hone his talents and maintain his development at the club over the coming years.
