Manchester United’s chief executive, Richard Arnold, has cast doubt on the future of Mason Greenwood with the Premier League club.
Following a turbulent period for the youngster, Arnold made an announcement during an all-staff meeting held on Monday, as reported by The Telegraph. He declared, “There is no expectation of Mason playing for Manchester United.”
Greenwood’s tumultuous journey began in January 2022 when he faced serious legal allegations, including attempted rape, assault, and coercive control. The club initiated a lengthy internal investigation in response to his arrest, and it was only in February 2023 that these charges were ultimately dropped, allowing Greenwood to restart his professional career.
Throughout the summer, Greenwood trained separately from the rest of the Manchester United squad, foreshadowing his eventual move away from the club. As the transfer window drew to a close, he secured a loan move to La Liga side Getafe.
The 21-year-old forward made his debut for Getafe over the weekend, making a 13-minute appearance off the bench in their 3-2 victory over Osasuna. However, this return to the pitch was met with disheartening “die” chants from opposing fans. Despite this adversity, Getafe has continued to provide unwavering support to their new signing.
