Juventus Makes First Bid for Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood

Striker on Loan at Getafe Draws Interest from Italian Giants

Manchester United has received an initial offer from Juventus for Mason Greenwood, according to recent reports. Greenwood, currently on loan at La Liga’s Getafe, has had a productive season with eight goals and six assists in 33 matches.

Greenwood, 22, had faced serious charges, including attempted rape and assault, but these were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February last year. Following this, United loaned him to Getafe, where he has flourished. Getafe’s president, Angel Torres, expressed in May that Greenwood would prefer to stay another year, although the club cannot afford United’s asking price.

“If it were up to him, his family, and Getafe, he’d stay another year,” Torres stated. “But Manchester United has indicated that they would consider a sale if a good offer comes along, as he’s not returning there.”

Juventus has now reportedly offered £40 million for Greenwood, which aligns closely with Manchester United’s valuation. This development is seen positively by Juventus, who are hopeful of securing the striker’s transfer this summer. Greenwood has reportedly shown interest in moving to Juventus.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who acquired a 27.7% stake in Manchester United earlier this year, hinted that decisions about Greenwood’s future at the club would be based on both his footballing skills and character.

“We need to decide if he’s the right type of footballer and if he’s a good person,” Ratcliffe said. “We have to make fair decisions based on values, and we’ll consider if he could sincerely play well for Manchester United and if both we and the fans would be comfortable with it.”
