Man Utd ‘decide to sell Mason Greenwood but get hit with immediate blow as Barcelona opt out of transfer race’

MANCHESTER UNITED are ready to sell Mason Greenwood – but Barcelona are not interested in a deal, transfer reports say.

Greenwood has spent the season on loan with Getafe, hitting a run of good form with eight goals in 27 matches.

His performances attracted interest from the likes of Barca, who have been linked with a summer swoop for the ex-England international.

According to Fabrizio Romano for CaughtOffside, United directors and Barca chief Deco did meet for talks.

But it is claimed the Spanish giants are not plotting a move for Greenwood right now.

It is said, though, that United are willing to let Greenwood go for good if the right proposal is tabled.


And the club are actively looking at ways of offloading the forward.

A police investigation into Greenwood, 22, was launched in January 2022.

But charges of attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour were later dropped.

United still made the decision to send the striker out on loan to Spain though new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe controversially left the door open to a return.


He said in February: “We will make a decision. I don’t know if he (Greenwood) could still have a future.

“All I can do is talk about the principle of how we will approach decisions like that.

“Is he the right type of footballer? Are we happy with that? Is he a good person or not?

“He (Greenwood) is a Manchester United footballer and we are in charge of football. 

“So the answer is it’s quite clear we have to make a decision. 

“There is no decision that’s been made. He’s on loan obviously but he’s not the only one. 

“We’ve got one or two footballers that we have to deal with and we have to make a decision on – so we will do that. 

“The process will be – understand the facts not the hype and then try and come to a fair decision on the basis of values – which is basically whether he is a good guy or not. 

“Could he play sincerely for Manchester United well and would we be comfortable with it and the fans be comfortable with it?

“I can talk about the principle. The principle is the important one because we will have other issues going forwards. 

“You are dealing with young people who have not always been brought up in the best circumstances, who have a lot of money and don’t always have the guidance they should have. 

“What we need to do when we have issues like that is to understand the real effects, not the hype.

“Then we need to make a fair decision in the light of the club’s values. That’s what we need to do and that’s how we will deal with it.”
