Finally Man Utd has make decision on Mason Greenwood future as club plan summer clearout

Jadon Sancho and Greenwood are scheduled to go up for sale, but Marcus Rashford won’t be sold unless an enormous offer is made for the England international.

In order to make room for summer additions, Manchester United is considering selling Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood.

Although new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has indicated a willingness to invest, United must sell a large portion of their team because they are constrained by Profitability and Sustainability Rules following costly acquisitions made in the previous two summers.

Though United’s top priority is getting Marcus Rashford back to the form that saw him score 30 goals the previous season, they would only allow him to leave if there is a sizable bid and if the forward requests to leave.

Greenwood has eight goals while on loan at Getafe, so any proceeds from his sale would be considered pure profit for PSR purposes. After being accused of attempted rape, assault, and controlling and coercive behavior, the forward’s former chief executive Richard Arnold stated that the forward had no future at Old Trafford. Police later dropped those charges, but not before United looked into the matter internally and faced criticism when they decided to bring him back.

Ratcliffe, 22, will be put up for sale this summer, despite appearing open to change his mind when he stated in February that United needed to “make a decision” based on “the facts, not the hype.”

Sancho, who is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund following a fallout with manager Erik ten Hag, will also be acquired for £73 million. For four months, the England winger was barred from first team training after he refused to apologize for a social media post that made fun of the Dutchman.

Additionally, United is willing to sell young players Hannibal Mejbri, who has been borrowed by Sevilla, Facundo Pellestri, who is at Granada, and Brandon Williams, who is with Ipswich, as well as Donny van de Beek, who is on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt.

For the bulk of their team, they would entertain offers that fit their valuation; however, Alejandro Garnacho, Kobbie Mainoo, and Rasmus Hojlund are off limits. Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot, and captain Bruno Fernandes are among the other players who are anticipated to stick around.

This implies that United might be open to offers for £85 million to sign Antony, though they would probably have to absorb a significant loss on his purchase price; Mason Mount, who has struggled in his first season at Old Trafford; or Casemiro, who has shown signs of deterioration in his second season in Manchester.

Last summer, United turned down offers for Scott McTominay that didn’t match their estimation of the Scotland midfielder’s value and accepted one for Harry Maguire.

They are among a group of players whose contracts expire in 2025 and who United may lose on free transfers if they decide not to sell this year, even though both have played significant roles this season. Christian Eriksen and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are the most likely to depart if a suitable offer is made.

Anthony Martial, a forward, will be leaving United when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign, the team has already confirmed. Raphael Varane is probably going to come after, as United hasn’t chosen to activate his contract extension yet. They have very little chance of pursuing their option to purchase Sofyan Amrabat following his loan from Fiorentina’s failure.

It is anticipated that United will target a center-back and a center-forward in the summer transfer window. United may find it difficult to offload some of its players due to the wages they receive at Old Trafford.
