This morning, Portuguese newspaper Record had Manchester United owned Mason Greenwood on their front page.

The story claimed that Benfica are taking steps to sign the 22-year-old, with their club director speaking to the player and his father about the transfer.

It turns out that O Jogo now features a very short story to strongly deny the Eagles interest in the Manchester United player.

O Jogo say Greenwood is not on the list of Benfica’s potential reinforcements, and no contact has been made for his move.

O Jogo even mention the recent links with Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus, probably as a sign that the Eagles wouldn’t have the financial strength to compete for the transfer.

Or, potentially, they may be hinting that Greenwood claims are appearing around Europe without a lot to back them up.

Not expected to have any new chances at Manchester United, Greenwood is returning to the club this summer following a loan spell at Getafe.

The attacker had 10 goals and six assists in 36 games for the Spanish club, and now must find a new destination.

Someone, it appears, is trying to hype it all by feeding claims to various media houses around Europe.
