Napoli Credited with Interest in Manchester United Outcast

It took Luciano Spalletti’s successors one year to dismantle everything he built at Napoli, turning the champions into whipping boys. After a series of poor decisions in the past 12 months, it’s time for Aurelio De Laurentiis to get back to the drawing board. 

Unsettled Lazio stalwart Luis Alberto is among De Laurentiis’ dream signings. However, Biancocelesti’s demands have blown Napoli out of the water. Meanwhile, Victor Osimhen’s imminent departure will refresh the club’s bank accounts and allow them to pursue big-money deals.

Yesterday, a reputed foreign source linked Napoli with a move for Manchester United outcast Mason Greenwood. The 22-year-old’s career at Old Trafford is dead in the water after a notorious rape scandal in January 2022. But it doesn’t change the fact he’s still a hot prospect.

Greenwood joined La Liga minnows Getafe on a season-long loan last summer and immediately proved his worth. He has mustered ten goals in 34 appearances this season, attracting interest from potential suitors ahead of his permanent departure from Man United this summer. 

Napoli could be the Englishman’s next landing spot. Unlike many European presidents, De Laurentiis couldn’t care less about his public image. He does what he thinks is best for the club. In this case, Greenwood could be the best thing that happened to Napoli since Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s arrival in 2022. 

At 22, he still has ample room for improvement, even though he’s already a devastating forward. Greenwood would be an upgrade on Matteo Politano after the Italian winger experienced a see-saw campaign in 2023/24. Let’s see if Napoli can come to terms with the Red Devils.
