Mason Greenwood offered big-money move to link up with Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson in Saudi Arabia

The one-cap England international hasn’t played for the Red Devils since he was arrested on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill.

Erik ten Hag’s side subsequently launched their own internal investigation after the CPS dropped all charges against him in February 2023.

And he has now been told that he has no future at Old Trafford, with United weighing up whether to sell him, offload him on loan or rip up his contract which has two years left.

talkSPORT recently revealed that Roma were one of a number of Italian clubs that are considering whether to sign the forward.

But he could be set to depart Europe altogether, with The Sun stating that Al Ettifaq are ready to offer him an escape route.

It has been claimed that the Saudi Pro League outfit are prepared to offer him a whopping £10million-a-year deal in the Gulf nation.

To break that down, that would see the youngster pocket £192k-a-week.

Should he join At Ettifaq, he would play under the tutelage of Liverpool legend Gerrard, and become a teammate of Reds icon Jordan Henderson.

It has also been said that other Saudi clubs are keeping tabs on Greenwood’s situation at the Theatre of Dreams.

But should he opt to join Roma, he will be reunited with his ex-United boss Jose Mourinho.

He got his first taste of first-team football under the Special One, who included him in United’s pre-season tour of America in July 2018.

It was in the States where Greenwood made his senior debut – a cameo appearance against Club America in a 1-1 friendly draw.

Though his competitive debut for United came under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Mourinho’s sacking.
