Forward needs to sign off on the deal

Man Utd agree £26.7m deal with Marseille for Greenwood

2024/07/10 12:15

Manchester United have reportedly agreed to sell Mason Greenwood to Marseille for a fee of €31.6m (£26.7m) - the onus now on the forward to agree personal terms with the Ligue 1 club. 

According to the Guardian, the prospective deal includes an additional €4m in potential add-ons and a sell-on clause of 40-50% of any fee.

One potential hurdle facing the deal is political opposition from the mayor of Marseille, who has stated that it would be "unacceptable" if Greenwood joins the French club. 

In October 2022, Greenwood was charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The player denied all the charges, which were dropped in February 2023 after key witnesses withdrew their cooperation from the investigation and new material came to light, according to the Crown Prosecution Service.

Greenwood's last game for United was back in January 2022 and he is widely expected to leave Old Trafford even though his contract with the Red Devils runs until 2025 and contains the option to extend for a further year.

Last season, the striker scored 10 goals in 36 appearances for Spanish side Getafe - Greenwood also supplying six assists during a productive loan period.

Disappointing to see Greenwood potentially leaving Manchester United. Hope personal terms can't be agreed.

As a football fan, it's disappointing to see Manchester United agree to sell Greenwood for such a low fee. But it's up to him now to agree to personal terms with Marseille. The potential add-ons and sell-on clause are positive, but the mayor's opposition adds a layer of uncertainty. Let's hope the off-field controversies from 2022 are truly in the past for Greenwood.

As a football fan, I can't help but feel grateful that Manchester United have agreed to sell Greenwood to Marseille. It's a hefty fee of 31. 6m, with potential add-ons and a sell-on clause, which is great for the club. Hopefully, Greenwood will agree to personal terms and the deal will go through smoothly without any political interference.
