Mason Greenwood’s Manchester United future gets positive signal amid England snub

Mason Greenwood is making remarkable progress in getting his career back on track, and he’s excelling at it. The former Manchester United academy player faced assault charges in January 2022 but was cleared of all charges in February 2022, just over a year since his last game for Manchester United against West Ham.

His return sparked criticism, particularly from the women’s team. Greenwood was subsequently sent on a season-long loan to Getafe to address concerns from all parties, where he’s currently thriving. However, questions persist about his future at United or with the England national team, but recent updates on his future have been very positive.

Mason Greenwood reportedly backed over Manchester United return

Mason Greenwood’s future is uncertain. Where will he end up next season? Does he still have a chance at Manchester United? These are some of the questions that have popped up regarding the on-loan Getafe winger, and rightly so. United sent Mason Greenwood on loan after appearing to welcome him back to the squad, only to be reportedly met with backlash from the women’s team.

Mason Greenwood is enjoying football again, away from the limelight of English football, and he’s doing quite well. His strong form has even made him a target for Barcelona, who have identified the English winger as a perfect summer target.

The Catalan club hopes to develop him into another Lionel Messi. Getafe are also exploring a permanent deal for him, but any discussion to secure his services permanently would be complicated, considering how much Manchester United still values him.

This brings us to the final option, as recent reports have confirmed: giving Greenwood another chance at the club. According to these reports, the dressing room has backed Greenwood’s return, with several players and staff using a poll to make that decision. Despite his domestic abuse case, Mason Greenwood remains a popular figure among the fans, who would be excited to see him don the red jersey again.

If Greenwood returns to the club, he’ll be joining one of the best attacking talents in the league. The forward already has a good relationship with Marcus Rashford and would fancy playing in an attacking team of Garnacho, Hojlund, and Antony.

Gareth Southgate explains Mason Greenwood’s England NT future

Right before his arrest and subsequent suspension from football, Mason Greenwood and England had seemed like the perfect match. The country has never been short of attacking talents, but Gareth Southgate himself admitted that Greenwood would bring something different and more exciting to the team’s attack, which opened the door for his England debut, which came against Iceland in September 2020.

With his future in doubt, Southgate confirmed that Greenwood would not be part of his Euro 2024 squad. However, he refused to rule out a possible return to the team later in the future. “I think allowing him to get his career going again abroad appears to have been a good move, but I have to say I have not tracked it closely,” the England boss confirmed.

“I think at this moment in time, it would be a big distraction for the team but let’s see where that leads next season,” he added.

The best thing about all this for Mason Greenwood is that he’s only 22, so he has all the time in the world to get his career going again.
