Mason Greenwood set to take 'notable reduction' on Man United wage if forced into a move abroad
| Last updated
Mason Greenwood's footballing future remains uncertain, with the 21-year-old expected to face a 'notable reduction' on his Manchester United wages if he is to move overseas.
Greenwood, 21, walked free from court last week, after seeing all charges against him dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service.
The CPS declared that the charges were dropped as a result of 'the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light.'
Questions have been raised about where Greenwood's footballing future may lie as a result of his release, with mixed opinions on a potential return to Manchester United.
It is not yet known where Greenwood himself wishes to continue his playing career, with a potential move to the Chinese Super League among the options understood to be available to the Englishman.
Despite being contracted to the club, there has been no decision made by Manchester Untied with regards to Greenwood's future at Old Trafford. The English forward remains suspended by the Premier League outfit pending an internal investigation.
Should United opt against allowing the 21-year-old back at the club, then he would likely have to take a 'notable reduction' on his current wage in search of a new employer, The Mirror's Colin Millar reports:
'If he does leave, the forward is thought to have four options on the table – a move to mainland Europe, joining a club in the MLS, moving to the Middle East or joining a side in the Chinese Super League. If he is to move to the Far East, he would have to accept a notable reduction on his current £75k weekly wage, with salaries in China capped at £50k per week.'
Greenwood is also without any major sponsorship deals, after Nike cut ties with the footballer following on from his court case. The forward had donned Nike's boots in all 129 of his appearances for United
