After weeks of speculation, the Red Devils forward is being written off by the Old Trafford outfit after uproar online from fans at the prospect of Greenwood, 21, making a comeback.
In a statement released yesterday, Manchester United said: “All those involved, including Mason, recognise the difficulties with him recommencing his career at Manchester United.”
Football stars including Gary Lineker spoke out following the decision, with the Match Of The Day host saying: “Inevitable and right decision on an untenable situation.”
United have taken calls from clubs across Europe and Middle East who are interested in the 21-year-old forward.
The Times reports that Turkish side Istanbul Başakşehir is one of the clubs which have thrown their hats in the ring.
Başakşehir expressed their interest in signing Greenwood in a quick deal this month.
The Red Devils lost 2-1 to Başakşehir in Istanbul in a November 2020 Champions League group stage tie.
Greenwood is also in line for a £10million Saudi Arabia deal with Steven Gerrard – or else a potential reunion with Jose Mourinho.
Other Saudi clubs are also considering a move for the 21-year-old after United announced he’d be leaving, The Sun can reveal.
The Sun understands several Saudi clubs are interested, including Gerrard’s side who are considering whether to offer a £10million-a-year deal.
United revealed they had come to a “collaborative decision” with the 21-year-old forward for him to move on.
But the club did not say whether his £75,000-a-week contract would be terminated or whether he would be put on loan or sold.
They now face a scramble to get rid of Greenwood in just ten days or face losing millions.
