Manchester United receive £25m bid from Spain as swap deal solution emerges



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have received a £25 million bid from Spain for forward Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood, 22, had a successful loan spell at Getafe last term after it was confirmed he would not restart his career at Manchester United.

The academy graduate is one of the club’s most sellable assets during a summer transfer window where INEOS must raise funds in order to complete the business they intend to.

With the 22-year-old valued by the club at around £40 million, an opening bid from La Liga club Valencia has appeared below that mark.

According to The Mirror, the Spanish outfit have made a £25 million bid for Greenwood, and a source close to the player’s camp has confirmed that his priority is to return to Spain.

This follows on from rumours which claimed Juventus were in the driving seat to secure his signature in a deal worth £40 million with add-ons included.

Meanwhile, United are attempting to strengthen their backline this summer and Jarrad Branthwaite has emerged as the favourite option in that position.

Branthwaite has already agreed personal terms with United, who saw an opening bid of £43 million rejected by Everton.

The Toffees are holding out for at least £70 million for the 21-year-old English defender; however, there is a potential swap deal that could satisfy both parties.

A new report from HITC claims that Everton have already started looking at replacements and that Victor Lindelöf has emerged as an option for the Premier League outfit.

It was claimed that the Red Devils are open to allowing the Swedish defender to leave Old Trafford this summer.

With one year remaining on his deal at United, Lindelöf could be used as a make-weight in a deal for Branthwaite if Everton do not ease up on their price tag.
