Italian giants Juventus have expressed their interest in Manchester United outcast Mason Greenwood as they contemplate securing a deal for the forward at a reduced price.

As reported by the Italian publication La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are keen on acquiring Greenwood, who has fallen out of favour at United.

The 22-year-old is presently on loan at La Liga club Getafe as he aims to rejuvenate his career at the top tier of football. Juventus have been monitoring the situation for some months and have actively sought additional information regarding the forward.

Greenwood's future at Old Trafford is currently uncertain, with his contract due to expire in 2025. The expiring deal, along with his age and footballing prowess, have attracted interest from Juventus for a potential transfer.

Reports suggest that Getafe are also keen on securing another loan deal for Greenwood, although United would prefer a permanent sale if he were to leave this summer. Atletico Madrid have shown interest in the forward as well, but Barcelona has refrained from making a move due to potential backlash.

In January 2022, the player was arrested on suspicion of rape and sexual assault. He was subsequently suspended by United. However, all charges against him were dropped in February 2023, clearing the path for his loan move to Getafe.

Former United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has revealed his thoughts on a potential move to Juventus for Greenwood, where he said: "I’m convinced that Mason would do well in any big team, even Juventus. A Greenwood-Vlahovic-Chiesa trident would be super.”

For now, Greenwood will continue playing for Getafe until his loan deal expires this summer. At the end of the 2023-24 campaign, both United and the player himself will likely look to address his long-term future. Greenwood will next be in action after the international break, as Getafe take on Sevilla (March 30).
