Man Utd didn’t want to, but had to part with Mason Greenwood. “Both sides have agreed that it would be most appropriate for him to leave Old Trafford,” Man Utd announced not long ago.
For more than a year, Greenwood was suspended from playing. However, the Red Devils still regularly pay the England international, £ 75,000 a week.
Finally, Man Utd also found a solution to part with the English player, according to a loan contract to Getafe.
However, Lazio was initially the potential destination for the England international. Lazio president, Mr. Claudio Lotito, confirmed this.
Specifically, Mr. Claudio Lotito shared with La Lazio Siamo Noi: “I tried to make the Greenwood deal until the last minute.
They didn’t sign the paperwork in time. He wants to go to Lazio.”
Asked if Lazio would try again in the January transfer window, Lotito replied: “Let’s wait and see.”
La Lazio Siamo Noi also reported that head coach Maurizio Sarri opposed the club’s push to sign Greenwood due to concerns about the player’s attitude and physical condition.
Thus, Greenwood’s intention was to go to Serie A but failed.
