Erik ten Hag, who supposedly wants two new strikers at Manchester United this summer but is only interested in Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund, may have already settled on an internal alternative. Mason Greenwood is anticipated to return to football this season, and Ten Hag may be reserving a spot for him on his roster.

United are moving further with their pursuit of Hojlund, presenting a verbal bid for roughly £51 million this week.

The 20-year-old Danish international is thought to have selected Old Trafford over PSG as his preferred destination.

However, the Manchester Evening News reported earlier this month that Ten Hag planned to add two more faces to his attack this summer.

Without player sales, United’s budget is unlikely to go much further beyond Hojlund’s price tag, perhaps leaving the Dutchman with fewer options.

Greenwood comes into play here.

United’s No. 11 is awaiting a decision on his future as the club conducts an internal investigation to determine whether he will play for them again after the Crown Prosecution Service dropped charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control against him.

Ten Hag indicated earlier in preseason that he had informed United of his position on Greenwood’s future as he prepared for his second season in charge.

“It’s a club decision, and of course, I shared my opinions, but it’s a club decision, and we all have to accept that,” he told reporters.

“I can’t say much about it, but I did express my opinion, so let’s see what happens.”

And it would make sense for Ten Hag to consider Greenwood as a potential new acquisition this season, considering that his suspension began before his arrival.

United are lacking striker alternatives following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure in November. If Marcus Rashford is unavailable, Ten Hag has just the injury-prone Anthony Martial to fall back on.

The addition of Hojlund would relieve a lot of that burden. Greenwood, on the other hand, might compete for a starting spot up front or on the right if he rediscovers his electrifying promise after breaking into the first squad.

His comeback to football will be polarizing, and whoever he plays for next should manage him well.

Ten Hag, on the other hand, may see Greenwood as a valuable option if United allows him to stay.
