Mason Greenwood “could return” to Manchester United this summer if specific condition isn’t triggered



| Last Updated:


Mason Greenwood could return to Manchester United this summer if the club’s transfer valuation isn’t met this summer, according to reports.

Mason Greenwood is currently one of Manchester United‘s most sellable assets. The young player enjoyed a fruitful season at Getafe in La Liga.

After the academy graduate was arrested in January 2022 following allegations of sexual assault and domestic abuse, he was stripped of all his duties at Old Trafford and placed under house arrest following video evidence of the alleged attacks circulating on social media.

However, the CPS eventually dropped the case due to “a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light,” meaning “there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.” Fan pressure meant that United ultimately decided that the forward would recommence his career elsewhere, hence his loan move to Spain.

With INEOS looking to raise as much money in funds as possible this summer, The Times have reported that United are looking to cash in on Greenwood this summer – although there is a condition that he could stay at Old Trafford next season.

According to ESPN, United “will not accept a significantly reduced fee” for Greenwood despite the club’s clear desire to move him on. If their demands of between £30-40 million are not met, he may stay at Old Trafford.

Greenwood’s contract expires in 2025, but the club have an option to trigger an extension until 2026, meaning he effectively has two years left on his current deal.

Concerning a potential destination, Juventus are the latest club who have been significantly interested in the player, with reports claiming that they have been scouting the former England international.

Barcelona are said to have shown significant interest earlier this season, although links between Mason Greenwood and Camp Nou have dwindled in the last month.

However, it remains to be seen if any suitors for Greenwood could afford such a fee. Should he not be sold this summer, it is unclear whether he would be integrated back into the squad or sent on loan for a further season.
