New Mason Greenwood bid arrives as Fabrizio Romano details Man Utd demands; Euro giant re-enters race

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that a new offer has come in for Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood, while separate reports claim Atletico Madrid are back in the mix to sign him.

Greenwood’s loan spell at Getafe has finished, though it is very unlikely he will resume his career at Man Utd during the 2024-25 season. Sir Jim Ratcliffe has decided he wants to sell the one-time England international as it would be too difficult for him to play for the Red Devils again.

But Marseille’s first proposal did not match Man Utd’s £30m asking price either, and according to the latest from Romano, the Ligue 1 outfit have now returned with a new ‘formal bid’ to try and secure an agreement.

Romano does not reveal exactly how much the fresh offer is worth, though it will undoubtedly get closer to that £30m sum than Marseille’s opening gambit.

Marseille are very keen to wrap up Greenwood’s signing as Romano adds that the 22-year-old is their ‘main’ attacking target. An agreement is ‘getting closer’, too.

Man Utd transfers: Mason Greenwood in Marseille sights

While Man Utd ideally want to pick up £30m for their academy graduate, they are now open to accepting a loan with an obligation for Marseille to buy him next summer. Man Utd are also looking for a sell-on clause to be included in the deal, which will see them pick up an extra fee if Greenwood shines and ends up earning another big move.
