Europa League side who could face Man Utd are 'interested in signing Mason Greenwood'

Turkish club Fenerbahce are reportedly interested in signing Mason Greenwood from Manchester United.

Greenwood, 21, was suspended by United last year following a series of allegations against the striker.

He was later arrested and charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm but it was announced earlier this month that all charges against him had been dropped after key witnesses withdrew their involvement in the case and new material came to light.

However, the England international remains suspended by United while the club conducts an internal investigation.

A report in The Times claims United's dressing room is split over whether Greenwood should be allowed to return to first-team duties.

It is claimed that 'some players in the men's team harbour concerns about the idea of Greenwood coming back into the fold, although others would have no objection to it given that he has not been found guilty of anything'.

Greenwood released a short statement after the charges were dropped, which made no mention of his football career and plans for the future.

"I am relieved that this matter is now over and I would like to thank my family, loved ones and friends for their support," read the statement.

"There will be no further comment at this time."

Speculation continues over whether Greenwood will be allowed to continue his United career, or whether he will be released or sold once the club has conducted its internal investigation.

A move to China has been touted as one potential option for Greenwood, while a report in Turkey claims Fenerbahce are interested in signing the striker.

According to FutoSpor, as reported by The Sun, Fenerbahce have been 'making inquiries' about the striker.

Like United, Fenerbahce are competing in the Europa League this season.

The Turkish side are already through to the last 16 of the competition and could potentially be drawn against United, if the Premier League side beat Barcelona in their play-off tie.

Could Greenwood stay at Man Utd?

United manager Erik ten Hag has refused to comment on Greenwood while the club conducts its investigation.

However, the Dutch manager has reportedly contacted the striker since the Crown Prosecution Service discontinued the charges against him.

It was the first time Ten Hag had spoken with Greenwood since taking over as United boss last summer.

The Times report has also claimed there are some members of Manchester United's women's team that have serious concerns about the possibility of Greenwood returning to first-team training.


It is claimed they would 'be unhappy if Greenwood came back to United's Carrington training base, which they share with the men's team'.

Greenwood's most recent appearance for the club came against West Ham United on January 22, 2022 before he was suspended.

In total, Greenwood has played 129 times in all competitions for United, scoring 35 times.

He is also a full England international, having won one cap for the Three Lions – a Nations League win away against Iceland in 2020.
