When asked if Borussia Dortmund was interested in signing Mason Greenwood, a forward for Manchester United, the sporting director of the team declined to comment.

Having decided that ‘it would be most appropriate for him’ to continue his career away from Old Trafford, Greenwood spent the previous season on loan with Getafe.

Following some time off the field, Greenwood steadily regained his form in Spain, making 36 appearances across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and dishing out six assists. The 22-year-old will now have the chance to take a break before United decides what to do with him after his loan period ends.

Greenwood has shown interest in signing with Getafe once more, but reports from Germany indicate Dortmund may also be willing to sign him on a temporary basis.

When questioned about Greenwood during the Champions League final media day, Sebastian Kehl, the sporting director of Dortmund, stated that all transfer plans were paused.

“At this time, I don’t want to discuss any rumors because they don’t make sense. On Saturday, let’s play that final,” Kehl stated.

Naturally, we talk about a variety of scenarios and have plans for the upcoming season, but nothing for today. Let’s concentrate, look forward to that game on Saturday, and then decide how to proceed.

In response to a question about whether Dortmund is keeping an eye on Greenwood, Kehl stated, “I don’t want to talk about that right now.”

Greenwood’s Old Trafford contract is set to expire in the summer of 2025, but United may choose to extend it by an additional season. Greenwood’s contract extension could be used to preserve his resale value, even though a permanent sale would be the better course of action this summer. Thus, he could be lent out once more.

When Sir Jim Ratcliffe discussed Greenwood with reporters in London in February, the co-owner of United seemed to be inviting him back.

Ratcliffe responded, “Well, he’s a Manchester United footballer, we’re in charge of football, so the answer is yeah, we have to make a decision, it’s quite clear,” to a specific question about whether he was not ruling out a return for Greenwood.

“A decision has not yet been made. That’s right, he’s on loan. We will make a decision because we have to deal with one or two football players who are on our books.

But the method will be to comprehend the facts, not the hype, and then attempt to reach a just conclusion based on recommendations, which essentially boils down to: Is he a good man or not? Could he honestly play well for Manchester United and both the team and the supporters be at ease with it?”
