Mason Greenwood told to leave Man United for “life-changing money” offer by ex-England boss



| Last Updated:


Former England manager Fabio Capello believes Mason Greenwood should target a transfer to Juventus this summer, with INEOS set to sell the winger.

After Juventus attempted to sign the young Englishman five years ago, Capello believes a new move to the Italian giants is the best next step for Greenwood.

In 2022, Greenwood was charged with attempted rape, assault, and controlling and coercive behaviour, but the Crown Prosecution Service dropped all charges against the 22-year-old after key witnesses withdrew and new material came to light.

Following an internal investigation, Manchester United decided that Greenwood’s future would continue away from the club, and he was sent on loan to Spanish club Getafe.

With a return to Old Trafford or a permanent move to Getafe unlikely, the Englishman needs to find a new club in the summer transfer window.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Capello offered his insight: “I’ve heard about Greenwood. A Manchester United talent who has been affected by personal issues, but seems reborn at Getafe.

“There are no doubts about his qualities. [Riccardo] Calafiori looks interesting as well, but I am accustomed to seeing a Juventus that keeps their best players.

“I would not sell Bremer, [Federico] Chiesa or [Dusan] Vlahovic. I would only add quality players. I really like Bologna’s [Lewis] Ferguson and his injury was a shame.”

While Juventus are yet to express significant interest in Greenwood this year, the Serie A royalty have a history with the young English forward.

In 2020, The Athletic reported that the two-time Champions League winners considered submitting a bid for Greenwood.

And, while speaking on the Talk of the Devils podcast, Andy Mitten claimed that in 2019 Juventus were preparing to offer Greenwood a life-changing amount of money.

Greenwood dismissed any potential move to Italy and instead signed a new four-year deal with United.

But, with another extension likely off the table for the forward, a new chance to play in black and white may be best for himself and Manchester United.
