Manchester United ‘exploring options’ to send Mason Greenwood on loan next summer
Mason Greenwood has long been absent from football after being accused of domestic violence
Manchester United are considering sending Mason Greenwood on loan for an entire season as per the reports.
The forward is still the subject of the club’s administrative inquiry despite allegations of attempted rape, coercive behaviour, and violence having been dropped in February.
Mail Sport has learned that authorities are considering a plan that would send the 21-year-old overseas for a maximum of twelve months. The three most likely alternatives are considered to be Turkey, Italy, and Spain.
After their season ended on Saturday, United are rumoured to have intensified their investigation into Mason Greenwood, who has two years left on his £75,000-per-week contract.
If they determine the player dragged the club into shame, they may opt to release him or they could finish the evaluation by sending him abroad so they could have more time to think.

They would be able to measure the public’s response as well as Mason Greenwood’s performance and mental state if they considered this possibility. In addition, they could send him to Europe, where he could play while the investigation is ongoing.
Whenever the claims first surfaced in January of last year, United banned Greenwood, an England cap, and he is still not involved. It is unlikely that the Bradford-born academy graduate will join another Premier League team.
Furthermore, although Turkey has made offers to United, Greenwood might want to play at a better level. As a result, relocation to Italy or Spain may be in the works.
For other ownership groups, though, the optics of bringing Mason Greenwood on board could be problematic. Those who are familiar with the situation think it might be challenging to transfer to an American-owned team like AC Milan.
Additionally, a pay agreement would be required. Throughout the procedure, Greenwood has received a full salary.
When questioned if he required another attacker to relieve Marcus Rashford of the burden, manager Erik Ten Hag responded that Greenwood, who has 36 goals in 130 games for United, had “shown in the past he is capable of doing that.”
‘What we need besides Marcus Rashford is one extra player with scoring abilities whether it’s coming out of our own squad or we have to sign one.’
