Lazio Rome tried unsuccessfully to recruit Mason Greenwood last summer. The club from the Italian capital were unable to complete the deal before the market closed. In the end, the England international went on loan to Getafe in Spain. As the winter season draws to a close, the 22-year-old is once again on the Serie A club’s radar. This time, however, he will have to contend with FC Barcelona.
Scorer of 5 goals and 4 assists in 15 games this season, Mason Greenwood seems to have caught the eye of two Spanish giants. According to The Sun and El Gol Digital, Barcelona and even Real Madrid are interested in the Manchester United player. Lazio, on the other hand, have not given up on him altogether. The club coached by Maurizio Sarri intends to return to the fray this winter. But it’s clear that the competition will be stiff. At Old Trafford, a sale of the player, whose contract expires in 2025, could be on the cards. The player’s market value is 17 million euros, but the English club may raise the stakes given the competition.
