Saudi Club Al-Ettifaq Considering Offering Mason Greenwood a £10m-a-year Deal

Saudi club, Al-Ettifaq is reportedly considering offering a £10m-a-year deal to winger Mason Greenwood.


Greenwood is due to quit Old Trafford when an internal inquiry into his conduct concludes, United confirmed on Monday, August 21. Attempted r**e accusations against him were dismissed in February.


United’s investigation lasted six months, and the Manchester United Supporters Trust chastised the club for taking ‘far too long’ to reach a conclusion on Greenwood’s future.


According to The Sun, the 21-year-old is searching for a new club and might be granted a fresh start by Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ettifaq.


Al-Ettifaq, who have won their first two league games this season, are considering handing Greenwood a contract worth £10 million per year.


This would be a significant increase on his current United deal which sees him earn £75,000-a-week, equating to approximately £4m-per-year.


Should he move to Al-Ettifaq, Greenwood would join up with Gerrard, who was appointed the club’s new manager last month.


He would also have a familiar face as a team-mate in the shape of former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.


Henderson completed his £12 million move to Al-Ettifaq in July and is now the club’s highest earner, earning £700,000 per week.


However, Al-Ettifaq will face competition for Greenwood’s signature as the forward considers his next move.


According to the Sun, several Saudi clubs are interested in the England international, while Turkish heavyweights Galatasaray are keeping an eye on his position.


Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is a fan of Greenwood and may want to add him to his roster at Roma, according to Mail Sport.
