Sir Jim Ratcliffe provides update on Mason Greenwood situation

Greenwood has been linked with various clubs in Spain including Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Man United owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has given his opinion on Mason Greenwood’s future at Old Trafford. He has admitted Manchester United will “look at facts, judge fairly and take into consideration what the values of the club are”.

The 22-year-old will be back to Man United this summer after completing the loan spell at Getafe. His contract will expire at the end of the summer of 2025. He has one more year in his contract.

Greenwood has been linked with various clubs in Spain including Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. These clubs are offering him a permanent deal.

Greenwood has scored seven goals and provided five assists in 24 appearances in his comeback season. He has been impressive for the Spanish club in La Liga.

Ratcliffe has now directly addressed the situation for the first time and said to BBC Sport, “We need to look at facts, judge fairly and take into consideration what the values of the club are. Then we come out of that with a decision. It is not appropriate for me to comment on Mason Greenwood.”

“I can talk about the principle, I’m not going to talk about Mason. I’m familiar with it. The principle is the important one because we will have other issues going forward.

“You’re dealing with young people, they’ve not always been brought up in the best of circumstances, who are very talented, they’ve got lots of money and they don’t always have maybe the guidance they should have.

“What we need to do when we have issues like that is, we need to understand what the facts are – the real facts, not the hype – what the real facts are. Then we need to make a fair decision in the light of the club’s values, that’s what we need to do and that’s how we will do it.

“We’ll make a decision, yeah, correct. And we’ll justify it one way or another. All I can do is talk about the principle of how we will approach it. Is he the right type of footballer? Is he a good person or not?”

“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.

“There is no decision that’s been made. He’s on loan, obviously. We’ve got one or two footballers we have to deal with that are on our books and we need to make a decision, we’ll do that.

“But the process will understand the facts, not the hype, and then try and come to a fair decision on the basis of advice, which basically is he a good guy or not? Could he play sincerely for Manchester United well and we’d be comfortable with it and the fans would be comfortable with it?”
