Manchester United ‘Considering’ Big Decision over Mason Greenwood

Despite charges being dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February, Mason Greenwood is still under investigation by Manchester United. Assuming that the club can’t find any incriminating evidence against him, the Glazer family would still have to make a decision regarding his playing time next season.

However, it appears a move abroad could be in the cards. According to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils are “considering sending” the 21-year-old out on loan for the entirety of the next term: with the Spanish, Turkish, and Italian leagues being the most probable destinations.

Mason Greenwood’s Relationship with Manchester United

Manchester Evening News reports that a resolution will be finalized soon regarding the criminal saga of the attacker. Although proof that the Bradford-born footballer had committed any crimes hasn’t been found, there is still a chance that he gets released due to the bad reputation that he has brought upon the club.

Another variable is Erik ten Hag. The Dutch manager quoted that he needs ‘one extra player with scoring abilities’ to share responsibility with Marcus Rashford in the attacking third. Despite links with Harry Kane, it’d be convenient if they added a ‘world-class’ forward to their squad without spending tens of millions of pounds to do so.

What Going Abroad Could Mean

Leaving England makes sense for all parties involved. The academy product can find his feet again in a new league to re-establish his attacking prowess, while the 3rd-place finishers can scout his progress and see if he is worth investing in again. If the loan is successful and the two-footed player proves that he is still clinical in front of goal, it could go a long way to earning back a place on his current team.

At his best, the Englishman is one of the best goal-scorers in the Premier League and would undoubtedly be an improvement on previous Number 9’s like Wout Weghorst. However, is his talent worth the publicity risk? If the Striker can stay out of trouble, then most likely the answer is yes. If not, then more negative press could create distractions that hinder their chances of trying to catching up to their in-city rivals.
