Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi has agreed a two-year extension to his current contract.
The 19-year-old, who made five Premiership appearances for United last season, has signed a deal that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2010.
Manager Sir Alex Ferguson, told the club website:
“We are delighted Giuseppe has signed a new contract, he represents the future of the club. Last year he had a remarkable season and he is developing all the time.”
Rossi joined United in July 2004 from Serie A club Parma, making his debut for the Red Devils in the Carling Cup tie against Crystal Palace in November that year.
He scored four goals in all competitions last season, including one in the Premiership against Sunderland, which helped United seal a 3-1 win.
Rossi, who also netted 30 times in 28 reserve team appearances last term, said: “It is great to have extended my contract with the best team in the world. I just hope to keep progressing and developing my career.”
