Greenwood's Future at Manchester United Remains Uncertain Amidst Frustration

09/07/24 11:00

Manchester United's young forward, Mason Greenwood, is reportedly growing increasingly frustrated with the uncertainty surrounding his future at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old, who spent the last season on loan at Getafe, is expected to be sold this summer and is eager for his situation to be resolved within the next week.

Greenwood’s stint in La Liga saw him net six goals, but despite his efforts, a return to Manchester United’s starting XI seems improbable.

Greenwood, who has not played for United since January 2022 following serious legal accusations, saw the charges dropped in February 2023. However, this does not equate to an assertion of innocence, as the voice notes released were notably damning.

United are reportedly holding out for around £40 million, with a £25 million offer from Valencia already on the table. Interest in Greenwood is widespread, with Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Lazio, and Marseille all keen on acquiring his services.

However, negotiations are ongoing, with United placing significant importance on a potential future sale percentage, which could be as high as 40-50%.

Recent reports suggest that Greenwood was advised against joining pre-season training with Erik ten Hag's squad. Yet, amidst the transfer speculations, Greenwood has been spotted training alongside former Manchester United teammate Shola Shoretire, adding another layer to the ongoing saga.

The latest development includes a formal proposal from Olympique Marseille, reportedly worth €30 million, plus a substantial sell-on clause. This offer is currently under serious consideration as final negotiations take place.

Greenwood’s impatience with the drawn-out process is palpable. As clubs vie for his signature and Manchester United deliberate over the best course of action, the young forward’s future remains a key talking point in this summer’s transfer window.

With several top clubs interested and negotiations heating up, the next week could be crucial in determining where Greenwood will ply his trade next season.
