“Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League schedules.

“But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.”

Greenwood finished the just concluded 2020/21 season with 12 goals in 52 appearances as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side finished second on the Premier League table and runner-up in the Europa League after their defeat to first-time winner, Villareal.
