Manchester United have reportedly put a £40million price tag on Mason Greenwood as the striker’s future remains uncertain at Old Trafford. Greenwood, 22, is currently on loan at Getafe and has revived his career this season, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists for the La Liga side.

Back in August, United announced a “mutual agreement” with Greenwood for him to leave the club, after protests from some fans over his potential stay at Old Trafford. He had not played for the club since January 2022 after facing charges of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault. According to the Times, United are willing to keep Greenwood if their valuation is not met.

Juventus and Barcelona have been linked with bids, but it is unclear whether they would be willing to meet United’s asking price. The Red Devils risk a potential backlash from fans if Greenwood were to return to the team, as demonstrated by previous protests outside Old Trafford. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who recently acquired a minority stake in the club, remained non-committal when asked about Greenwood’s potential return to the first-team fold next season.

The club’s financial situation is also under scrutiny, with reports indicating that Ratcliffe is prepared to sell several players this summer, following United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.
