3 Reasons Mason Greenwood Must follow Gilmour's Example And Leave Man United Before Next Season

Mason Greenwood is set to battle Jason Sancho for a place in Manchester United's first team next season. The Red Devils completed the signing of the Borrusia Dortmund star and he would come in to take Greenwood's preferred right-wing. 19-year-old Greenwood can also play anywhere across the front 3 but the presence of Rashford and Cavani would make him the third choice in all positions. And with the potential last of playing time next season, it might be best to follow the example of another wonderkid who left his club in search of regular minutes. That wonderkid is Billy Gilmour.

Gilmour left Chelsea to join Norwich City after being in a similar position to Greenwood last season and Greenwood should now follow his example. A loan move does not mean the player is leaving the club, no, rather it helps them gain more first-team experience that would help them develop. Manchester United fans especially might not see the reason Greenwood should leave on loan but below, I would list 3 reasons why a loan move would be best for him and the club. Without much Ado, below are the reasons...

1. More Game Time.

The arrival of Jadon Sancho at Manchester United would most likely make Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leave Mason Greenwood on the bench more often than not. Greenwood found game time difficult at the beginning of last season but after Martial got injured, he was brought back into the fold by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But now with Martial, Rashford, Cavani and Sancho set to be ready and firing next season, Greenwood would most likely spend more time on the bench once more.

2. To Gain Experience.

Playing regularly for Manchester United would have helped Greenwood gain more experience of playing at the highest level but with that looking increasingly unlikely with Sancho's arrival, then a loan move away would come in handy. With a player of Greenwood's talent on the market, there would be no shortage of suitors. Teams like Crystal Palace, West Ham and Everton are also top Premier League sides and going on loan there would help Greenwood gain experience. The 19-year-old has what it takes to break into their first teams and in the end, the loan would help him come back stronger for Manchester United, just like Jesse Lingard.

3. To Get Back Into The England Team.

At the moment, Greenwood is nowhere near England first team. The youngster was called up in the 33 men provisional list ahead of the Euros but everyone knew he would not make the final 26 man squad. And now with his place in the Manchester United team under threat from Sancho, a loan move would help him get back his place in the England national team. Given that Sancho is just 21 years old, it might be difficult for Greenwood to displace him especially if Sancho performs well at Old Trafford. So another way to get back to playing for the national side is to perform well out on loan.
