Manchester United discussing internally Mason Greenwood’s situation

According to renowned Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, speaking on his exclusive page, The Daily Briefing (h/t Caught Offside), Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is close to acquiring a 25% stake in Manchester United, has been discussing internally the situation of Mason Greenwood.

Romano indicates that any decision regarding Greenwood is expected to be made in April or May, as the current transfer window is too soon for resolving such a sensitive matter.

Fabrizio said:

“Incoming co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is already discussing Greenwood’s situation internally, and from what I’m told, he’s made no decision at all and nothing will be decided in December.”

It seems the most convenient option for INEOS, Ratcliffe’s company, would be to continue with Greenwood’s career away from Old Trafford. Given United’s previous stance on the matter, a change in direction by INEOS would be surprising.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is coming to Manchester United with a plan
Sir Jim Ratcliffe is internally discussing Mason Greenwood’s situation.

There are two primary options: selling Greenwood or reintegrating him into the first-team squad. Greenwood’s contract is due to expire in 2025, with the possibility of an extension for an additional year. United might consider this extension to either protect or enhance its market value. However, such a move would likely attract significant scrutiny.

Alejandro Garnacho’s emergence as a potential star at United, similar to Greenwood’s past impact, could have provided a formidable attacking duo. This is especially pertinent given the current struggles of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, where Greenwood’s contributions could have been valuable.

The England international initially appeared as a substitute in three of Getafe’s first four games but has since become a regular starter. He has scored four goals and provided three assists, including a stunning strike from the corner of the box against Almeria.
