Mason Greenwood ‘has plan for next transfer’ if Man United contract ends
| Last updated
Mason Greenwood reportedly already has a plan for his next transfer if Manchester United decide to cut ties with the player.
21-year-old Greenwood had charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against him dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service on Thursday this week.
However, he is now under an internal investigation led by United’s CEO Richard Arnold as the club decide on the future of the forward.
According to The Sun, the Greenwood situation has divided opinions amongst the club’s chiefs.
It has been reported that Greenwood never wanted to play for United again after they suspended him on the back of his arrest in January 2022.
In addition, it is believed that the player is ready to move away from England in order to resurrect his career.
A source told The Sun: “He said he would be happy to go and play in China as long as that meant he was getting paid well and was playing.
“His view may have softened over the last few months, but he was not happy at all.”
It has also been reported that Greenwood would find it difficult to cope with the treatment that rival fans will direct towards him should he continue playing in England.
Prior to United’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace, manager Erik ten Hag refused to comment on the situation.
The Dutchman said during his pre-match press conference on Friday: “No. Nothing. I can't add nothing. I refer to the statement of the club.”

When reporters quizzed Ten Hag on whether he has spoken to Greenwood, the United boss replied: “As I said, I can't give comment about the process.
“I can't say anything about it, I refer to the statement of the club. At this moment, I can't add anything.”
Thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford, United managed to record a 2-1 win over Palace on Saturday afternoon as they move up to third place in the Premier League table.
