Marseille in talks to sign Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood

Marseille are in talks with Manchester United as they look to sign their academy graduate Mason Greenwood ahead of next season.

According to David Ornstein, Marseille are interested in acquiring the services of Mason Greenwood. The French club are in talks with Manchester United over a potential transfer this summer. The Red Devils are ready to cash in on their academy graduate whose contract runs out in 12 months.

United decided to send Greenwood out on loan to Getafe last season. The English winger made a sensational return to football with the Spanish club. He was one of their best players throughout the campaign. The 22-year-old finished with 10 goals and six assists in his 36 outings.

While Sir Jim Ratcliffe was open to the idea of reinstating him in their first team following his return after an impressive loan spell, they have decided against it. They are ready to sanction his departure and multiple clubs from across Europe have been linked with the versatile forward who can feature anywhere in attack.
