Mason Greenwood offered Man Utd career lifeline by Sir Jim Ratcliffe | Football | Sport

Mason Greenwood may play for Manchester United again with Sir Jim Ratcliffe insisting that no decision has been made over the forward’s future. The Red Devils have previously said that it is unlikely that Greenwood will feature for the club again having been sent on loan to Spanish club Getafe.

In August, United’s previous sporting hierarchy decided that Greenwood’s future should recommence away from Old Trafford. It was the result of a lengthy internal investigation that followed charges of rape and coercive behaviour against the 22-year-old being dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service. He denied the allegations.

However, INEOS could take a different view on Greenwood’s future at the club. He will return to United when his loan at La Liga side Getafe concludes at the end of the season, allowing all parties to discuss the next course of action.

INEOS chief Ratcliffe, whose bid to buy 25 per cent of United has finally been ratified, says a new decision will be made on Greenwood’s future. The British billionaire suggested that the views of United fans would be taken into account.

Ratcliffe said: “He’s a Manchester United footballer, so we are in charge of football. So the answer is ‘yeah, we have to make decisions’. It’s quite clear we have to make a decision.

“There is no decision that’s been made. He’s on loan obviously, but he’s not the only one. We’ve got one or two footballers that we have to deal with and we have to make a decision on, so we will do that.

“The process will be: understand the facts not the hype, and then try and come to a fair decision on the basis of values, which is basically is he a good guy or not?

“Could he play sincerely for Manchester United well? Would we be comfortable with it and would the fans be comfortable with it?”
