Manchester United approached by Serie A sides for Mason Greenwood.

Atletico Madrid and Juventus are planning a move for on-loan Man United star Mason Greenwood

Atletico Madrid and Juventus are lining up moves for Mason Greenwood, with the Manchester United winger set to bid farewell to Old Trafford this summer.

That is as per Caught Offside. The 22-year-old finds himself with just a year left on his contract, prompting United to seek separation, particularly given his tumultuous past. The same source indicates that the proceeds from Greenwood‘s departure will fuel United’s transfer activities come summer.

Atletico Madrid have been keeping a keen eye on Greenwood’s loan escapades at Getafe in La Liga, where his performances have not gone unnoticed. However, they seem hesitant to meet United’s €30m valuation for the player.

On the other hand, Juventus are also in the hunt for reinforcements in the winger department, with Greenwood firmly on their radar. The Serie A heavyweights are mulling over an initial bid in the region of €15m-17m which would likely stand rejected, knowing United.

Greenwood’s sojourn in Spain has seen him excel, racking up an impressive tally of 10 goals and six assists in 32 outings. Nonetheless, United may encounter obstacles in offloading him due to the circumstances surrounding his impending exit and the stigma associated with his past.

The 22-year-old’s brush with the law in January 2022 on serious charges, later dismissed in 2023, has left English clubs wary of dealing with him. Consequently, foreign interest from clubs like Atletico Madrid and Juventus appears to present a more feasible avenue for Greenwood’s next move.
