INEOS reject £40 million January approach for Mason Greenwood



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have rejected a £40 million approach for Mason Greenwood, according to reports.

INEOS have been delegated responsibility for all sporting matters surrounding Manchester United, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe‘s company being told that every transfer decision from now until their Premier League approval has been sealed.

With that process set to take between four and six weeks, INEOS are taking a close eye on all decisions relating to Erik ten Hag‘s January transfer window and have reportedly made a decision surrounding Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood has been on loan at La Liga side Getafe CF for the season after it was confirmed that United would rather he focus on the restart of his career away from the club after Old Trafford fans protested against his return to the team.

According to The Sun, who have been closely covering the forward during his time in Spain so far, Getafe have contacted United to tell them that they wish to pay £40 million to make Greenwood’s transfer permanent in January.

However, United, and no doubt INEOS, have rejected the approach as they would rather his deal be kept as a loan until the end of the season, with Ratcliffe likely looking to take a view on Greenwood’s future once the season has come to a close.

If the club are to sell the 22-year-old, they must do so this summer, as his current contract with the club expires in 2025, making summer 2024 the final summer window where the play retains any value.

He has scored five goals and provided four assists in 15 games since moving to Getafe in September, and the club have no plans to reintegrate him once his loan deal expires.
