Mason Greenwood one of FOUR players to be sold in £100 million Manchester United academy exodus



| Last Updated:


Sir Jim Ratcliffe is set to sell Mason Greenwood this summer as he looks to raise up to £100 million through sales of Manchester United academy players.

Due to financial restrictions, Manchester United may be unable to spend big this summer unless they can raise funds through player sales – and Sir Jim Ratcliffe reportedly sees the answer in their academy.

One player who will certainly leave Erik ten Hag‘s squad for good this summer is Mason Greenwood, who has been on loan at Getafe for the season after it was made clear that he did not have a future in Manchester.

Greenwood has performed well in La Liga so far and a number of clubs have been linked, with the strongest coming from Barcelona.

“Of course, a move for him may be problematic, with clubs unwilling to comment on any links at this stage,” a Spain-based insider told iSport about Greenwood. “But Barcelona have been watching him from the minute he arrived, as have other teams.”

Beyond this, iSport report that despite his goal contributions this season, United also see Scott McTominay as a replacable asset.

The Scotland international was of great interest to West Ham last season and the club are reportdly hoping that the West London club will return in the 2024 summer window.

Beyond that, United also may recoup a further £20 million from the potential sales of Alvaro Fernandez and Hannibal Mejbri.

Fernandez’s loan to Benfica has a buy-option clause of around £4 million that becomes mandetory if he starts at least 50% of games he features in, while Mejbri’s six-month Sevilla loan contains a buy option of £17 million.
