Stade Brestois sporting director Grégory Lorenzi has revealed that his club turned down the chance to sign Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood.

Mason Greenwood recently completed his loan move from Manchester United to Madrid-based Getafe CF on transfer deadline day.

Erik ten Hag‘s club decided last month that Greenwood would no longer continue as a United player after fan pressure forced the club to change their position after it was revealed that they were planning on bringing the player back.

Although Greenwood remains on United’s books as a player, it has been decided that he will never play for the club again after allegations of domestic abuse surfaced in January 2022.

Greenwood was linked with a number of clubs ahead of the close of the transfer window as Manchester United offered the player out to many clubs across Europe, and he eventually signed for Getafe with just minutes to spare of the window.

One such club that came close but ultimately decided to reject Greenwood was Italian outfit Lazio, with the side facing backlash from fans once links appeared – it was also reported that manager Maurizio Sarri did not have confidence in the move.

However, it has now been revealed that Ligue 1 side Stade Brestois was another club that rejected the chance to sign Greenwood, with sporting director Grégory Lorenzi saying they immediately rejected the opportunity.

“I was offered Greenwood, who Manchester United sacked for a non-sporting matter,” he told Le Télégramme.

“But between the controversy and the salary, we didn’t consider following it up for a second.”
