Man Utd may ask Mason Greenwood for big favour after ‘reaching agreement’: Manchester United have reached an agreement after completing their investigation into Mason Greenwood, with an announcement expected in the next two weeks, according to reports.

United are close to completing a £72 million deal for Atalanta attacker Rasmus Hojlund this week.

Greenwood re-entering the fray would also boost the Dutchman’s ranks. This is Especially if he can continue his impressive growth after breaking through under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In the wake of Hojlund’s arrival at Old Trafford, he may have to make an unfavorable sacrifice when he returns to action.
Ten Hag will see Hojlund as an important part of his future ambitions as he attempts to return United to the top of English football. That much is clear from his £72 million price tag.

However, unlike Mount, who was offered the renowned No. 7, Hojlund does not have the same privilege.
Because all six of the last numbers the 20-year-old has worn at the senior level are no longer available at United.
Fred is currently wearing No. 17 for Atalanta, and while his impending departure would free up his shirt, Hojlund would most likely want one before that.
Anthony Martial is set to stay, taking the No. 9 off the table, while Facundo Pellistri now wears the No. 28.
Hojlund has also worn the numbers 20 and 21 for Denmark, however Diogo Dalot and Antony currently wear both.
However, Hojlund has recently been Denmark’s No. 11. And, considering his importance in Ten Hag’s eyes, he may wish to make that his own in M16.
Mason Greenwood inherited the shirt in 2020 and will be reluctant to give it up if he has a future at United.
However, if he stays at the club, he is unlikely to be thrust in as a regular starter right away and may be expected to send the ball over to United’s new star striker.
After the Nos. 13 and 15, the next possible number for Hojlund to select is No. 30. It does not scream marquee.
However, whether such a request is forwarded to Greenwood is contingent on how crucial Ten Hag’s newest recruit regards a jersey number.
