Man Utd hold contract talks on hold with Mason Greenwood
Manchester United have allegedly paused plans to offer youngster Mason Greenwood a new deal following questions over his activities off the pitch.
Masin has proven his capabilities on the field with 19 goals to his name in a United shirt.
But the forward has come under fire after being sent home from the England camp in Iceland after breaching coronavirus protocols with Phil Foden.
Manchester City star has since regained the trust of boss Gareth Southgate and has been included in the England roster for November’s fixtures, but Greenwood was left out – allegedly amid fresh concerns over his discipline.
The Athletic state that United chiefs are concerned that Greenwood isn’t taking the best care of his health off the pitch – with fears arising that the youngster is sleep-deprived – and the Red Devils are unwilling to offer him a new contract at this moment in time.
The report adds that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer phoned Southgate informing the England chief that he did not want Mason to be selected for this round of international matches.
And the Red Devils believe that the 19-year-old Englishman may not be following the rules of limiting contact outside of his social bubble.
He did not play a part in United’s 3-1 win against Everton, and the prodigy is yet to get off the mark in the current PL campaign.
Elsewhere, ESPN claim that United are ready to sanction a temporary exit for out-of-favour shot-stopper Dean Henderson, who starred while on loan at Sheffield United in their stunning 2019-20 Premier League campaign.
