Three next options for Mason Greenwood after Man Utd opt to axe player from club

Mason Greenwood has been axed by Manchester United, the club have announced – and he'll never play for them again.

An internal investigation into Greenwood was concluded on Monday after he was arrested on suspicion of attempted rape, assault and coercive control in January 2022. Greenwood denied all the charges, and they were later dropped by the CPS in February 2023.

United then launched their own internal investigation into the striker, to determine whether he had a future at Old Trafford.

And with United announcing Greenwood will now leave the club, Daily Star Sport has a look at what options Greenwood has in front of him.

Remain in England

Perhaps the most unlikely scenario on this list will see Greenwood remain on these shores. Greenwood's case has been heavily reported in the media and social media – and any clubs would face significant backlash if they made an approach for the striker.

However, Greenwood has a young family – after he and his partner announced the birth of their first child. And remaining in the UK to stay around family and friends could be a priority for the ex-United man.

Greenwood hasn't been linked to any clubs in England, and he might be forced to drop down divisions to secure a contract.

Move abroad

While moving abroad is very vast, playing football away from the UK would take Greenwood away from public scrutiny.

Earlier this summer, Greenwood was linked with a move to Jose Mourinho's Roma. However, there has been no further reports that Greenwood could move to Rome, but AC Milan, Inter and Juventus have also been linked with the Englishman.

The original report suggested Roma wanted Greenwood on loan, that situation might change with the latest developments.

Turkey and even Saudi Arabia have been touted as potential destinations for him too.


Greenwood, himself, has already made it clear he wants to remain in football. He said in a statement: "I intend to be a better footballer, but most importantly a good father, a better person, and to use my talents in a positive way on and off the pitch."

However, Greenwood could be forced to walk away from football if he is unable to find a new club.

As things stand, Greenwood still has two years left on his deal at United, and it has not been clarified how he will officially leave.
