Many things will change at Manchester United with the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe. The CEO of INEOS chemicals group finally acquired a percentage of the club and took over the football-related decisions, so he will be able to materialize his projects to improve not only the team with the aim of achieving better sporting results, but also the infrastructure of Old Trafford and Carrington.

One of the most important decisions he will have to make is the construction of the squad for next season. The team's performances over the last few months have been disappointing and fans are hoping that things will change from next summer onwards. Some players will leave once the season ends and many others will arrive.

But also some will end their loans with other clubs and will have to rejoin the squad, at least until a final decision is made about them. That is the case of Mason Greenwood, who after almost a year and a half without playing due to legal problems, was loaned to Getafe at the beginning of this season. With the Spanish side he showed excellent performances and that aroused the interest of important European teams.

In his first interview as Manchester United owner Ratcliffe was asked about the forward's situation and surprised everyone by leaving the door open for his return. "I don’t know if he could still have a future. All I can do is talk about the principle of how we will approach decisions like that", he began. He went on to explain: "He is a Manchester United footballer and we are in charge of football. There is no decision that’s been made"

Mason is not alone

Then Sir Jim Ratcliffe assured that, as with Greenwood, a decision will have to be made with the other players returning next summer. "He is on loan obviously but he’s not the only one. We’ve got one or two footballers that we have to deal with and we have to make a decision on, so we will do that. The process will be understand the facts not the hype and then try and come to a fair decision on the basis of values, which is basically whether he is a good guy or not". That means the same could happen with Jadon Sancho, once his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund comes to an end.
