The mayor of Marseille has advised Olympique de Marseille against signing Mason Greenwood from Manchester United, citing the forward’s alleged past behavior as “unspeakable.”

Sources informed ESPN that the clubs have reached a permanent transfer agreement for the 22-year-old, who spent the previous season on loan at Getafe.

Greenwood has not played for Manchester United since his suspension in January 2022, following his arrest on suspicion of rape and assault.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that the case involved “social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.”

“Greenwood’s behaviour is unspeakable and unacceptable,” Marseille Mayor Benoît Payan told French radio station RMC on Tuesday. “Hitting his wife … I saw images that deeply shocked me. Massacring his wife in this way is unbecoming of a man, and he cannot have his place on this team.

“The values ​​of OM and Marseille are anything but that in fact. It’s a shame. I will ask [Marseille president] Pablo Longoria not to recruit Greenwood. I don’t want my club to be covered with the shame of someone who hits his wife.
