The relationship between the two is described as providing the series creators with “substantial access to the club’s stars” in a statement on Konami’s website from their introduction of the commercial partnership in 2019.

Manchester United Postpone Decision on Mason Greenwood
According to Sky Sports, the Manchester club will not make a decision on the player’s future before their Premier League start against Wolves on Monday, despite prior reports that a decision would be made before the game.
The club is thought to be in the consultation stage of its probe, during which it will solicit feedback from key stakeholders, including the club’s women’s squad. This begs the question of why members of the women’s side were not contacted prior to the decision.
Fans will be anxiously awaiting a decision on the youngster’s future, but it is unclear how long they will have to wait for an official word from the club.
