Mason Greenwood’s future at Manchester United is uncertain as the Red Devils continue to investigate the 21-year-old
Mason Greenwood appears to be on his way out of Manchester United during the summer transfer window. Over the weekend, reports surfaced claiming that the England international, who last played for the club in January 2022, was resigned to never donning the club’s red and white stripes again. This comes after it was previously reported that the 21-year-old was fighting to return to the fold.
Greenwood was reported to be determined to play for United again in March.
According to The Athletic, an insider said the England international was ‘willing to run through a brick wall’ to be a part of Erik ten Hag’s setup.
While United continue to investigate the youngster, a split appears to be on the horizon.
Greenwood told close friends over the weekend that he was ready to leave and embark on a new adventure abroad.
“Mason believes he’s finished at United,” an insider told The Sun.
“He’s kicking his heels at home, frustrated.”
“He wants to play football again, but he realizes his situation is complicated and entirely his fault.”
“He is determined to play football again, but he doesn’t think he’ll ever pull on a Manchester United shirt again.”
It wasn’t supposed to be this way when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave Greenwood his United debut in 2019.
The youngster came off the bench in a memorable 3-1 win over PSG, helping the Red Devils knock the Ligue 1 giants out of the Champions League.
Greenwood, in Solskjaer’s opinion, was the natural No. 9 for United for the next decade.
Under the Norwegian, the forward was a key player in helping the Red Devils qualify for the Champions League in both 2020 and 2021.
Greenwood began last season at the spearhead of United’s attack, shining as Solskjaer’s side thrashed Leeds on the opening day.
And he was still used frequently after Cristiano Ronaldo returned from Juventus and made his Hollywood debut.
Greenwood was arrested in January of last year, and United suspended him – though he has been paid in full since.
Charges against the striker were dropped in February. “I am relieved that this matter is now over,” Greenwood responded, “and I would like to thank my family, loved ones, and friends for their support.”
“There will be no further commentary at this time.”
