Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Juventus have all been linked with a transfer for Greenwood, but now The Sun indicates that Mourinho is ready to help his former club out by making a move for the forward.

The report claims an unnamed source said: “Fenerbahce are interested in Mason. They know he is a quality player and believe that having Mourinho as manager could be an attractive proposition for him.”

Although Greenwood never played competitively under Mourinho at Man Utd, at 16 years old he was picked to tour the USA with the club’s first team in pre-season.

Barca’s ‘low-cost’ option

Barcelona are another side that continues to monitor the position of Greenwood.

Sport reports that the Man Utd player is considered to be a “low-cost” option for the Blaugrana as they seek to strengthen their forward line next season.

It is stated that Barca have already made some movement to land the Englishman, although it is still unclear just how much financial flexibility they will have in the transfer market.

The Red Devils are said to have asked for €60 million for Greenwood, a price likely to be out of the reach of both Barcelona and Fenerbahce.
