Manchester United could use Mason Greenwood as makeweight in deal to sign Juventus star

Manchester United could use Mason Greenwood as part of a deal to sign Juventus defender Gleison Bremer, according to reports.

Greenwood is currently on loan at La Liga side Getafe but it doesn’t look like he has a future at Old Trafford, unless the club changes its stance on welcoming him back. That wouldn’t be a popular decision and there is reason to doubt whether Getafe could afford to sign him on a permanent deal.

That said, I believe Greenwood is happy at Getafe. He’s been able to get back to playing football in Spain, whereas a return to the UK would warrant a backlash.

Greenwood has made 29 appearances across all competitions for Getafe this season, scoring eight goals and providing five assists.

Serie A next for Greenwood?

There is uncertainty surrounding Greenwood’s future and United are not likely to make a definite decision until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old’s contract at United expires in 2025.

According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, United could use Greenwood as a makeweight in a deal to get Bremer to Old Trafford.

Bremer has been linked with a move to United in recent months and I think everyone expects to see the club sign at least one centre-back in the summer.

It makes sense to do a swap deal if Juventus – or another club – has a player we are interested in signing.

Former Juventus manager Fabio Capello has advised Greenwood to join Juventus in the summer.
