to become the Red Devils’ top-scoring teenager.

Solskjaer

is satisfied with the youngster’s progress in attacking game with age.

"I'm very happy for him. He's mixing up his game. He goes inside and outside, he's maturing all the time. It's lovely to see,"

Solskjaer told BBC Sport

.

"He's put the work in on the training ground and reaps the rewards. Last season he was young, now he's had almost two seasons in the first team.

"Especially in the last three or four months I've seen how mature he is on the training ground and he plays with maturity and understanding.

"He's very creative but plays simple when he has to."
