Brentford and Dortmund Rejected Mason Greenwood Loan Transfer

Reports have emerged that clubs including Brentford, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan, and Roma had declined the opportunity to secure a loan deal for embattled Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood.

Prior to Greenwood’s season-long loan agreement with La Liga side Getafe, several European clubs were approached. Shockingly, both German powerhouse Dortmund and Premier League outfit Brentford declined the opportunity to strike a deal.

Meanwhile, Serie A sides Roma and AC Milan also concluded that a deal wouldn’t be in their best interests. At one point, Roma had shown interest, likely spurred by former United manager Jose Mourinho’s consideration of a reunion with Greenwood in Italy.

Lazio made an attempt to arrange a loan package, but the Italian transfer window closed before a decision could be made.

As things stand, Greenwood has chosen to ply his trade in Spain. According to reports, Manchester United will continue to cover a significant portion of his £75,000 weekly salary, amounting to at least £50,000. Additionally, they are providing him with a six-bedroom villa and a personal translator in Getafe.

Greenwood had faced allegations of attempted rape, controlling behaviour, and violence, saw these charges withdrawn in February 2023, allowing him to resume his professional career. Following a lengthy internal investigation, Manchester United decided to make the 21-year-old forward available during the summer transfer window.
