Manchester United are set to extend Mason Greenwood’s contract this summer amidst interests on the player.

The embattled English winger has successfully returned to elite-level performance following his 18-month exile.

He starred on a short-term loan shift for Getafe, reaching his personal career-best tally of 14 goal contributions in a single season to win Getafe Player of the Season.

Following his impressive loan shift with Getafe, there has been interest from top clubs in Europe for the youngster.

Getafe president Angel Torres confirmed Getafe had been pushing for another loan deal for Greenwood after his standout and remarkable contributions to the club.

2023-24 Champions League finalist Borussia Dortmund are also said to be interested in a loan move for the youngster.

Napoli, Juventus, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid have also been linked with the 22-year-old as his loan spell with Getafe comes to an end.

Amidst the deluge of interest on Greenwood, Futballnews understands United want to sell the player this summer with a £40m price tag slammed on his head.

With a year left on Greenwood’s contract, United are under pressure to process their desired permanent exit solution for the player or risk losing him on a free transfer.

As of the time of filing this report, there are no offers for a permanent move for Greenwood, meeting United’s £40m asking price.

This means the Old Trafford outfit will either be forced to sell the place at a cut price or work out another loan deal for him.

With a year left on his contract, Greenwood will be a free agent by the time he exhausts his second loan exit. This is a scenario United want to avoid.

According to inews, the Red Devils won’t be forced to sell Greenwood at a cut and are not ready to lose him on a free transfer either. So, they are reportedly set to extend his contract.

This will allow the club to buy time for a decent offer for the player while sending him on another loan deal.
