The teenager's breakthrough season has seen him score 17 goals and he heads into the Europa League mini- tournament in Germany looking for his first trophy.
Greenwood, 18, said: “When I was younger, I looked up to Marcus, Jesse, Scott, all of them coming through.
“I was thinking: 'If they're doing it, I can do it as well'. They give you a nice footpath and a clear way to the first team.
“They're good role models for me, as I was watching them when I was younger — now I'm playing alongside them.
“When you see the other players doing it, you're thinking in the academy: 'Why can't I do it?'
"And that's every young boy's dream in the academy — to get to the first team and be a regular at Man United. It's the best thing you can do at this club.
“I'm doing it now and I've just got to keep level-headed and carry on working hard because I've got a long way to go yet."
