Transfer Saga: Lazio & Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood

This article follows the Transfer Saga concerning Lazio’s interest in Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood. The 22-year-old English forward has been linked with a move to the Biancocelesti since the Summer of 2023.

The player was one of the promising youngsters to come out of the Red Devils’ academy in recent years; however, his career was put to an 18-month halt due to legal trouble related to his personal life. He managed to put his career back on track thanks to a positive loan stint at Getafe during the 2023-24 season, where he contributed with 10 goals and six assists across all competitions.

Mason Greenwood has not given his approval to a transfer from Manchester United to Marseille despite the two clubs coming to an agreement for the player on the basis of €27.5 million plus €4 million in bonuses (a total of €31.5 million).

This is due to the words of the Mayor of Marseille, Benoit Payan. He stated that the previous actions of the English forward are “unspeakable” and  “unacceptable”, and that he would personally ask President Pablo Longoria “not to buy Greenwood” as he would not want “his club to be associated with the shame of him beating his wife”.

As a result, Lazio are once again in contact with Manchester United trying to take advantage of the situation, as confirmed by Sporting Director Angelo Mariano Fabiani. However, Marseille have not yet given up in their pursuit – Manager Roberto De Zerbi trying to convince the player to make the move to France. The next 48 hours will be decisive as both clubs try to wrap up a deal for the player by Friday 12 July.

Olympique Marseille’s official proposal for Mason Greenwood is worth €30 million plus a big sell-on clause, which is considered crucial by Manchester United. The final round of talks are now ongoing, with the club looking to provide new manager Roberto De Zerbi with a top signing. Lazio are in the background still but would need to increase their offer to revive talks, which for now seems unlikely.

Lazio’s Italian intermediary handling the talks for Mason Greenwood has been in contact with Manchester United again over the last few days to continue the slow progress in negotiations. The Red Devils want around €30 million for the English winger, who has already opened up to the idea of joining the Biancocelesti after receiving three or four other offers; the usage of a high future resale clause could prove key in reaching an agreement.

Lazio were once again in direct contact with Manchester United concerning a possible deal for Mason Greenwood today. The Biancocelesti are willing to offer up to €25 million, plus the inclusion of a 40-50% sell-on fee, which should be enough to convince the Red Devils.

Greenwood has identified Lazio as his favourite destination, as he feels well-appreciated by the Biancocelesti who are looking to entrust him with an important role. The forward has thus turned down Olympique Marseille’s attempts to sign him and is hoping that the Italian capital side can secure an agreement with the Premier League side soon.
