Steven Gerrard’s Saudi club Al-Ettifaq are ‘considering offering Mason Greenwood a £10m-a-year deal’ as he prepares to leave Man United
- Manchester United have announced Mason Greenwood is set to leave the club
- The 21-year-old striker now looks set to continue his football career abroad
- Al-Ettifaq are reportedly interested in signing Greenwood this summer
Mason Greenwood could be set for a move to Saudi Arabia, with Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq weighing up an offer for the Manchester United striker, according to reports.
United announced on Monday that Greenwood is set to leave Old Trafford following the conclusion of their internal investigation into his conduct, after attempted rape charges against him were dropped in February.
United’s investigation lasted for six months, and the Manchester United Supporters Trust hit out at the club for taking ‘far too long’ to come to a final decision on Greenwood’s future.
The 21-year-old is now looking for a new club, and could be offered a fresh start by Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ettifaq, as reported by The Sun.
Al-Ettifaq, who have won their first two league games this season, are considering offering Greenwood a £10m-a-year contract.

This would be a significant increase on his current United deal which sees him earn £75,000-a-week, equating to approximately £4m-per-year.
Should he move to Al-Ettifaq, Greenwood would join up with Gerrard, who was appointed the club’s new manager last month.
He would also have a familiar face as a team-mate in the shape of former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
Henderson completed his £12m switch to Al-Ettifaq in July, and is the club’s highest earner after agreeing a staggering £700,000-a-week deal.
Al-Ettifaq face competition for Greenwood’s signature, though, as the forward contemplates his next move.
The Sun claim there are also other Saudi clubs showing interest in the England international, while Turkish giants Galatasaray are also monitoring his situation.
Mail Sport revealed on Monday that former United boss Jose Mourinho is also an admirer of Greenwood, and could look to add him to his squad at Roma.
