Mason Greenwood has reportedly told his friends that he does not expect to play for Manchester United ever again. The forward has not been integrated back into the first-team since charges were dropped against him in February.
Charges of rape and assault against Greenwood were dropped in February, though United took the decision to conduct an internal investigation over whether the academy product can return to the squad.
A decision is no closer though, with players from both the men’s and women’s squad – as well as partners – opposed to the idea of the 21-year-old returning to the team since his arrest in January 2022.
According to The Sun, the England international does not believe he will ever play for the Red Devils again and has been telling his close friends that he expects to be on the move following 12 weeks of awaiting an answer on where his future lies.
A source reportedly told them: “Mason believes he’s finished at United. He’s sat at home kicking his heels and very frustrated.
“He wants to get back playing football but realises his situation is very complicated and it’s his own doing. He is determined to play football again but doesn’t think he’ll ever pull on a United shirt ever again.”
Greenwood is not said to be ‘resigned’ to trying to reignite his career abroad, amid interest from AC Milan – with reports speculating that the Italian side have enquired about his availability and clarity on a very unclear situation at Old Trafford.
United’s club sponsors reportedly want to avoid association with Greenwood and would prefer ties to be cut with the player, with Erik ten Hag in the dark as to whether the talented forward will ever play under his management.
