Major club linked to Mason Greenwood 'now say top manager José Mourinho doesn't want to be associated with him' | The Sun

A MAJOR club linked to Mason Greenwood has now reportedly said that its top manager José Mourinho doesn't want to be associated with him.

United are facing a mad scramble to get rid of Mason Greenwood in just ten days or face losing millions.

The club yesterday announced their striker, 21, would not be returning to Old Trafford following his suspension.

Greenwood was charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour, before the charges were dropped in February by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

After weeks of speculation, the Red Devils forward is being written off by the Old Trafford outfit after uproar online from fans at the prospect of Greenwood making a comeback. 

United have taken calls from clubs across Europe and Middle East who are interested in the 21-year-old forward.
