Manchester United have dismissed reports that Mason Greenwood has been reintegrated to the the Red Devils’ squad, insisting that a decision is yet to be taken over the 21-year-old’s future.
Greenwood has been left out of United’s squad for 18 months, and recently, the Athletic reported that the club Chief Executive Richard Arnold had informed the club’s top staff, that the Englishman would be added back to Erik ten Hag’s side.
Daily Mail had reported last week that United are ready to welcome Greenwood back after consulting with the club’s women’s team.
Reports also have it that Arnold’s plan is to to record and broadcast a video explaining Greenwood’s reintegration to the squad and the general public.
However,on a statement on Wednesday, the Red Devils clarified that a decision on Greenwood’s future is still in process.
The statement partly read: “The fact-finding phase of our investigation is now complete, and we are in the final stages of making a decision on Mason’s future.
‘Contrary to media speculation, that decision has not yet been made and is currently the subject of intensive internal deliberation. Responsibility ultimately rests with the Chief Executive Officer. Once made, the decision will be communicated and explained to the club’s internal and external stakeholders.”
United won the Carabao Cup last season without Greenwood, but with the addition of new signees, Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, and Marcel sabitzer who joined on loan from Bayern Munich.
This summer, the club have let go the likes of David de Gea and Anthony Elenga, while Ramus Hojlund, Mason Mount and Andre Onana have joined.
