Juventus were reportedly ready to offer a ‘life-changing’ sum of money to Mason Greenwood to lure him from Manchester United in 2019.

Greenwood has scored 15 goals in all competitions and has established himself as a key part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team.

The teenager signed a new United deal in 2019, which will keep him at the club until 2023.

At the time he said: “Having grown up as a Manchester United fan, playing for the first team is a real dream come true.

“I know that, when I play for this club, I represent the whole academy and I want to repay the faith that my coaches have shown in me with my performances on the pitch.

“I am learning all the time from the manager and his coaching staff and I know that this is the perfect club to help me reach my potential.”

 

 

Solskjaer has described Greenwood as “the best finisher” he’s worked with, and although this has been something of a breakthrough campaign for the 18-year-old, his talents have been more widely recognised for a while.

Juventus were apparently well aware of the forward’s potential, and according to The Athletic, were considering signing him.

Speaking on the Talk of the Devils podcast, Andy Mitten claims the Italian giants were ready to offer Greenwood a life-changing amount of money.

But United were able to convince Greenwood that Old Trafford was the best place for him to develop, and they are now reaping the rewards.
