Greenwood impressed in the La Liga during the 2023/2024 campaign, which he spent on loan at Getafe.

According to Transfermarkt, the England international made 36 appearances for Getafe across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and getting six assists.

His performances have led to several clubs expressing interest in him, including teams in Germany and Portugal.

ESPN reports that Lazio are ready to offer Manchester United a £30million fee, which could rise depending on Greenwood’s performance and achievements at the club.

The Rome-based club, who recently appointed ex-Hellas Verona manager Marco Baroni as their new manager, are long-time admirers of Greenwood and are reportedly trying to convince the forward that their project would suit him best as he continues to rebuild his career.

Last season, the club was willing to help the forward revive his career, but Greenwood ultimately settled on Getafe.

Lazio's lack of Champions League football next season gives them an upper hand over Juventus, which offers Greenwood less pressure if he moves to the Stadio Olimpico.

Does Greenwood have a future at Man United?

It is highly unlikely Greenwood will play for Manchester United again.

United kept the £75,000-a-week player, whose contract runs until 2025 because they wanted to avoid potential losses that would have come with ripping up his deal.

According to Sunsport, the striker’s representatives have been informed by United that the player is free to leave if a suitable offer rolls by.

Man United cannot sign Todibo

Sports Brief reported on why Manchester United are unable to sign Jean-Clair Todibo from OGC Nice.

The Red Devils have been in talks with French club Nice to negotiate a deal for the defender. Raphael Varane's departure at the end of the season has left Erik ten Hag bereft of options.

The deal is stalling because Man United and Nice are owned by the same person and are in the same UEFA competition next season.
