Man United eye ‘pure profit’ windfall from Greenwood sale to fund summer rebuild

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the upcoming summer transfer window. 

Manchester United new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe will be looking to take advantage of the ‘pure profit’ loophole to raise funds if he is to sell the 22-year-old ace in the off-season. The ‘pure profit’ loophole is that when a club sells an academy player, they can consider 100% of the funds as profits in their financial statements. This will help the Red Devils invest in other places in the squad and potentially strengthen areas that need improvement. This can enable the club to bolster the roster at Erik ten Hag’s disposal while complying with financial regulations and maintaining stability in its operations.

Man United might be ‘tempted’ to sell Mason Greenwood and generate money bagging on his success on-loan at Getafe, especially considering the outburst it would cause if they brought him around Old Trafford again. Mason Greenwood has scored eight goals and provided six assists this season for Getafe in 33 appearances in all competitions.

The Red Devils already have a suitor to sell the twenty-year-old ace this summer, with Barça expressing interest in his signatures. The Camp Nou side is planning to incorporate a new face along the forward line this summer, with Deco and Hansi Flick taking charge of the transfer dealings, and Mason has been identified as one of the potential targets for the upcoming window.

With the history that Greenwood has, the club can consider a cheap option to sell him this summer, and Barcelona views him as a budget-friendly option, per sports.es.
