Mason Greenwood: Fabrizio Romano reveals Man United’s ‘internal feeling’ after Sir Jim Ratcliffe comment



| Last Updated:


Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s comments that a new decision will be made on Mason Greenwood’s Manchester United future.

As well as confirming Greenwood’s current stance at Old Trafford, Romano also noted that despite those comments, the internal belief at United is that the Premier League club will “cash in on” Greenwood this summer.

United suspended Greenwood over several serious allegations as well as graphic content posted to social media emerging.

Facing several charges that included attempted rape and assault, the Crown Prosecution Service would then announce that in February 2023, the case against Greenwood had been discontinued.

As a result, Greenwood had reportedly been earmarked for a return to Old Trafford, only for United to go back on that idea after an emergence of public outcry.

The forward has instead spent this season on loan at La Liga side Getafe, providing twelve goal contributions so far during his time in Spain.

This form, along with Ineos and Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s partial takeover of United, has led to Greewood’s future becoming uncertain, with Ratcliffe stating that a new decision on Greenwood will have to be made.

Speaking to CaughtOffside, Romano confirmed that a decision will once again need to be made on Greenwood’s future at the club:

“Sir Jim Ratcliffe said that they’ve not decided and they will take time, internal discussions and then decide… that is the reality. No decision in February or March, it’s one for the next months with new board and all people at Man United deciding together.

“This is the answer also from sources close to the player, it’s up to United and they’re not deciding yet.”

Although the feeling close to Greenwood and Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s statement indicated a new decision would be made, those at the club believe the forward will exit the team permanently.

“Sir Jim Ratcliffe has said publicly that Manchester United will take their time to decide on the future of Mason Greenwood as he impresses on loan at Getafe,” Wrote Romano. “But I can say that the feeling internally at the club is that they will cash in on the player.

“If they receive transfer proposals, they will be ready to consider them and to negotiate, but of course it will also be more clear once they bring in new appointments to the board such as Dan Ashworth.

“This will be key to decide the summer strategy, because things could still change, and there will be talks in April/May to clarify things, but for now the feeling is that Greenwood could be sold permanently.”
