Manchester United Facing 'Rift Between Mason Greenwood And Cristiano Ronaldo'

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood is unhappy with his lack of game time this season and is frustrated by Cristiano Ronaldo's influence at the club, according to reports.

Greenwood played a key role last season under former manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer but has found his opportunities limited since Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford in the summer.

The 20-year-old is yet to start a Premier League match under interim manager Ralf Rangnick, who replaced Solskjaer in November.

According to Spanish newspaper El Nacional, Greenwood is upset with his lack of minutes and the fact that Ronaldo has remained the first-choice forward under Rangnick.

Greenwood is said to be considering his future, with a number of top European clubs reportedly interested in the England international.

El Nacional claim Barcelona, Juventus and Arsenal are all interested in Greenwood, who has scored five goals in his 17 games this season.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta is said to view Greenwood as a “star of the future”, while head coach Xavi would prefer to sign the 20-year-old instead of another United forward, Anthony Martial.

Martial, like Greenwood, has found his opportunities limited this season and wants to leave the club in January, according to his agent Philippe Lamboley.

"Anthony wishes to leave the club in January,” Lamboley told Sky Sports News.

"He just needs to play. He doesn't want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon."

However, Rangnick says the France international has not asked to leave the club.

“The player hasn't spoken with me or us about it,” he said.

The speculation surrounding Greenwood’s future follows claims he was offered “life changing money” to leave Manchester United two years ago before being persuaded to stay.

According to The Athletic's Talk of the Devils podcast, Juventus offered the then 18-year-old a lucrative contract to move to Serie A.

However, United were able to convince him to stay and he signed a new four-year deal at Old Trafford.
