The forward remains under suspension by the club and may leave in the summer.

Manchester United could loan out Mason Greenwood next season because Erik ten Hag is reluctant to offload the forward on a permanent basis.

Greenwood has not played for the Red Devils for the last 18 months as he has been dealing with charges of rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault.

However, the charges were dropped early in the year, but the 21-year-old remains under suspension by the club. To decide the forward's future, the club's bosses have been conducting an investigation of their own and holding internal talks.

However, Ten Hag remains convinced of Greenwood, whom he complimented in a past interview and said, ‘He has shown in the past that he is capable of doing that [centre forward role]’.

The Dutch coach is thus not willing to let Greenwood leave permanently and feels a loan move could be the best arrangement between the player and the club.

Greenwood, with just one cap for England, has reportedly attracted interest from Italy and Turkey. Further reports claimed he had put his Cheshire property up for rent recently, leading to speculation he could leave the north-west.

Although United are in need of a striker and should sign one soon, they face stringent financial constraints that could limit their spending to around £120 million.
