Roma Offer Escape Route to Unsettled Man Utd Star

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has established contact with forgotten Manchester United ace Mason Greenwood over a potential summer switch to Italy. According to The Sun, the ‘Special One’ is willing to hand the troubled forward a ‘football lifeline.’

Mourinho is familiar with Greenwood’s qualities from his time at Old Trafford. Even though the 21-year-old was only a teenager during the Portuguese coach’s managerial stint at Man Utd, the latter knows what he can expect from the left-footed attacker. And he is keen to revive the youngster’s declining career.

Greenwood saw charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive and controlling behavior dropped in February. But even though the Crown Prosecution Service dismissed all allegations against the homegrown Man Utd star, he’s still on the sidelines.

Indeed, Man Utd suspended Greenwood until further notice, with the Red Devils chiefs investigating his conduct following his January 2022 arrest. Since the Premier League giants are open to letting their infamous forward leave on loan, Roma are ready to pounce. Mourinho has reached out to the player to offer him a fresh start in Serie A.

Considering it’s been over a year since Greenwood last grasped a football pitch, his signing carries a certain amount of risk. But if Mourinho thinks he’s a gamble worth taking, there’s no doubt Roma would intensify talks to take the unsettled Man Utd starlet to the Stadio Olimpico.

As it seems, Erik ten Hag’s employers won’t stand in their way. However, the Roma boss should think twice before making such a risky move. Meanwhile, the Giallorossi have also brought Paris Saint-Germain’s Renato Sanches back to their shopping list.
