Sir Jim Ratcliffe speaks on Mason Greenwood's future at Manchester United


Manchester United's latest minority shareholder, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been in the news since it was announced that he is now a part owner of the club.

Sir Jim was speaking in an interview with BBC Sports on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, where he was asked about the future of Mason Greenwood at the club. According to him, the forward player is a Manchester United player who is currently on loan at Getafe.

He said,

"Well, he’s a Manchester United footballer, we’re in charge of football, so the answer is yeah, we have to make a decision, it’s quite clear. There is no decision that’s been made. He’s on loan, obviously. We’ve got one or two footballers we have to deal with that are on our books and we need to make a decision, we’ll do that.”

Recall that Greenwood had to leave the Old Trafford following the charges of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour which were levelled against him. However, the charges were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February 2023.

Greenwood has been impressive for Getafe but he still has a contract with United which will run until 2025, with an option to extend by an extra year.
