Manchester United “hoping” for double transfer but Mason Greenwood’s return not ruled out



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are said to be hoping for a double transfer this summer, but that Mason Greenwood’s return cannot be ruled out.

Manchester United are in desperate need of raising funds this summer after multiple seasons of lavish spending under Erik ten Hag have left the side having to make amends to comply with profit and sustainability rules.

United have many sellable assets, and incomings are required in order to stregthen the side regardless of if Ten Hag remains in a job beyond this summer.

United are targetting two centre-backs, a central midfiedler, and centre forward in the coming wundow, and the club are hoping for a double trnasfer out of Old Trafford this summer in order to fund new signings.

According to The Athletic, negotiating a permenant trnasfer for Greenwood is United’s ideal outcome – however, if no one meets their asking price, another loan would be considered.

The report further stipulates that a return to United has not been ruled out should either a permenant or loan deal in the ball-park of the club’s demands not be struck. There have been rumours that United have activated the one-year extention in Greenwood’s contract, and if this is the case, his deal will run until 2026.

Greenwood is said to want to play for a Champions League club next season, and has been subject to interest across the continant over the last few months. Napoli have been linked, while Juventus have been named as frontrunners by the Italian media.

A second transfer that United are ‘hoping’ will materialise is that of Jadon Sancho. The Athletic report states that the club hopes “that Jadon Sancho’s run to the Champions League final on loan back at previous club Borussia Dortmund will help spark interest in United’s £73 million England winger”.

The odds of Sancho being reintegrated under Ten Hag are at almost zero, but it was claimed on Sunday that Sancho would like to return to the club provided that the Dutch manager is not in charge next season.
