TalkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor believes that the Premier League career of Manchester United attacker Mason Greenwood is over.

Man Utd’s internal investigation into Greenwood has been ongoing since the Crown Prosecution Service dropped all charges levied against the 21-year-old in February.

Reports suggest that Erik ten Hag will have a say in the former England international’s future. However, it would be a hugely controversial move to reintegrate him back into the first team.

Nevertheless, Greenwood has caught the attention of several teams as he steps up his training regime ahead of a return to football.

For instance, Roma have registered an interest in the attacker. Also, he reportedly is on the radar of Juventus and Atalanta.

To date, Greenwood has made 129 appearances for Man Utd. In the process, he has scored 35 goals and made 12 assists.

Before his suspension, the 21-year-old was considered to be one of the hottest prospects in European football.

But, it does seem very unlikely that he will ever play for the Red Devils again, due to the controversy surrounding him.

Agbonlahor: Greenwood ‘still worth £80m’

Speaking on talkSPORT, Agbonlahor said Greenwood’s Man Utd career is most likely over. But, he did admit that he is and is probably still worth £80m.

“I don’t think he will play in the Premier League again,” he said.

“I think his reputation is damaged at Manchester United and in England, I do think he will play on again in a different country, a different league.

“But I do feel living in England, being at football games, seeing what fans are like at games, I can’t see him going out there and playing for Manchester United again.

“I think for the owners as well, he’s an asset, he’s probably an £80million asset.

“A very good player, talented, 21, what are they saying about it? Do they want to sell their asset?

“It’s definitely something difficult to talk about, but for me, I can’t see in the next couple of years, him playing in the Premier League, I just can’t see it.

“Say Manchester United are playing Crystal Palace away, you can see the reception he’s going to get for the whole game.

“Even warming up as a sub, you come on, it’s just going to be focused on him, it’s going to be like non-stop every fan giving him abuse.”
