Man Utd fought off massive Juventus offer to keep Greenwood

Manchester United fought off a bumper offer from Juventus for Mason Greenwood before his first team breakthrough last season.

The on-fire forward, 18, signed a new four-year contract at Old Trafford in October - and has already scored 15 times this season.

The Sun reports Andy Mitten, a Man Utd journalist for The Athletic, revealed the secret offer, telling the Talk of the Devils podcast: "I think [Greenwood] can be a world class player.

"I know that there has been offers for him.

"Go back a year and Juventus were prepared to offer his family life-changing amounts of money.

"Manchester United deserve credit for the way they got him to sign a new contract."
