Sir Jim Ratcliffe has reportedly made a decision around the future of Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood.
According to a story from The Guardian, Sir Jim Ratcliffe is expected to support United’s decision to keep the 21-year-old attacker firmly away from Old Trafford.
Mason Greenwood’s contract with Manchester United is valid until 2025, but because he won’t be allowed to rejoin the team following his loan with Getafe, the club may decide to sell him in the summer of 2025.
Before a leak from The Athletic caused such a fan backlash that the club ultimately reversed its decision, the Englishman appeared to be returning to the first team fold.
With Ratcliffe making a significant decision regarding his future, it now appears that his future is away from Old Trafford.
The absence of Greenwood
The 21-year-old forward isn’t in Manchester United’s future plans, according to the report, which uses Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s vision for the future as support.
Greenwood scored his first goal for the team in the 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo during his five appearances while on loan at Getafe in Spain.
According to a story in The Sun, Greenwood was eager to extend his stay in Spain and wanted to make his loan assignment permanent.
Since then, The Mirror reports that Sevilla of the Champions League is now apparently interested in the English forward.
United made the proper choice.
Erik ten Hag’s Premier League campaign got off to a contentious start when United’s plans for the recent academy graduate appeared to have been leaked to the press.
Lately, United made a U-turn, which, by all accounts, was the right move for the club, but the way they handled the leaks to the media was undoubtedly wrong.
Since then, Richard Arnold, United’s CEO, has had to respond to inquiries about how the forward was handled.
It makes obvious that Greenwood would wish to cut ties given that Ratcliffe is expected to take control at Old Trafford and that inviting Greenwood back would be a significant PR misstep.
