Adidas have denied a recent report suggesting that they have had an involvement in Mason Greenwood’s Manchester United future.
Mason Greenwood‘s future has been subject to much speculation in the last 18 months after the striker was suspended from the Manchester United squad in January 2022, well before Erik ten Hag took charge.
With photos and videos alleging domestic abuse by the striker surfacing on social media, the Crown Prosecution Service opened an investigation into the incidents after he was arrested – but the case was ultimately dropped.
After the case was dropped, the club opened their own internal investigation into the matter, and although a decision was set to be made after the 2022/23 season had finished, this has been delayed – there will be no decision until after the 2023/24 season gets underway.
It was reported on Friday that Adidas have held secret conversations with the club and player, and have explained that they would not be against the player returning to the squad – although they have since released a statement denying this.
In a statement reported by The Daily Star, an Adidas spokesperson said: “After inaccurate and speculative reporting within the media it’s important for us to clarify that Adidas has had no discussions with Manchester United regarding any member of their playing squad.
“We play no role in any decisions made regarding any member of the team or staff at the club.”
Ten Hag is reportedly said to be open to Greenwood returning to the squad, although the club are less sure – he may instead go on loan next season.
