Manchester United announced that Mason Greenwood will no longer play football for the club again.

The club statement also made clear the club will work with Mason Greenwood to find a solution to continue his career, citing a duty of care to the 21-year-old.

Greenwood remains under contract to Manchester United, where he is being paid a full salary.

So it is in the club’s interest to get him off the books, and there is interest in his signature already.

Al-Ettifaq want Mason Greenwood

The Sun report Mason Greenwood is being lined up for a lucrative move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Ettifaq.

Al-Ettifaq is the club managed by Steven Gerrard, who Jordan Henderson signed with earlier this summer.

The report claims Al-Ettifaq are weighing up making a £10 million per year offer to Mason Greenwood.

Other Saudi clubs are also interested, the report claims, while there is also interest from other Turkish clubs.

Jose Mourinho reunion possible

Talksport report Roma are one of a handful of Italian sides interested in a move for Mason Greenwood.

While this would probably not offer quite a lucrative wage to Greenwood as a move to Al-Ettifaq, a reunion with Jose Mourinho and staying in Europe may be tempting for him.

Mourinho was first team coach at United when Greenwood began to score prolifically for the under-18s side and promoted him to first team training sessions, although he made his debut under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

There is no mention in either report of what, if any, transfer fee Manchester Untied might receive.
