Fenerbahce Interested, But Greenwood Hesitant

According to The Sun, Fenerbahce are among the clubs interested in acquiring Greenwood. However, the report suggests Greenwood is reluctant to work under Mourinho. Although Greenwood was part of United’s academy during Mourinho’s previous stint, their potential reunion appears strained.

Academy Days and a Missed Opportunity

Former United academy manager Nicky Butt, recalling Greenwood’s early days, told The Athletic in 2021 that Mourinho was impressed by the young player during a training session. However, Greenwood’s school commitments prevented him from training with the first team at the time.

Greenwood’s Options: Juventus or Fenerbahce (Without Mourinho)?

Earlier reports suggested a possible verbal agreement between Greenwood and Juventus. With just a year remaining on his United contract, the club is keen to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer.

Will Greenwood Embrace a New Challenge?

Whether Greenwood chooses Fenerbahce and potentially overcomes his reservations about Mourinho, or pursues a move to Juventus, remains to be seen. One thing is certain – there will be significant interest in the talented striker’s next move.
