How Mason Greenwood has reacted to Marseille mayor’s comments as one club plans transfer hijack

It had been widely reported that the Ligue 1 outfit was Greenwood’s preferred destination this summer, having garnered interest from a host of clubs – primarily in Italy, where Juventus, Napoli, and Lazio were all targeting his signature. Getafe were also keen on taking him back on loan for another season, but United wanted to cash in now and raise transfer funds.

Now, the attacker’s prospective move to Marseille has seemingly hit a roadblock due to reaction from fans, who’ve launched a #GreenwoodNotWelcome campaign on social media, and city major Benoit Payan, who has specifically spoken out regarding his intent to cancel any deal.

Of course, this is because of the significant baggage Greenwood carries wherever he plays his football after he was charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm in 2022.

Distressing footage released by a woman on social media prompted his initial arrest, which has made the majority of top European clubs extremely hesitant to welcome him at their clubs and risk upsetting supporters.
