Manchester United are increasingly concerned about Mason Greenwood’s attitude as the teenager continues to go through a difficult period in his young career.
Greenwood did not participate in Saturday’s 3-1 win at Everton due to illness.
However, it is understood that Greenwood’s performance in training on Friday was below par. And United on Monday denied speculation the teenager was involved in an exchange of words with Bruno Fernandes during the session at Carrington after failing to chase a pass from his teammate.

There are concerns at the club about the Greenwood lifestyle, particularly the amount of sleep and rest he gets to stay in the condition needed to perform at the highest level.
Last month, it emerged that United spoke to the 19-year-old about his timing at the club.
In September, Greenwood was fired from England in disgrace after making his senior debut when he and teammate Phil Foden were caught inviting girls to the team’s hotel in Iceland. United issued a statement in which they were “disappointed”.

Gareth Southgate has agreed with United boss that it would be better if Greenwood were left out
While Foden has been called up for upcoming games, Greenwood has been left out following talks between United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and England boss Gareth Southgate.
It is understood that Solskjaer wanted Greenwood, who has only made four starts for his club this season and has yet to complete a full 90 minutes, to train at Carrington. And Southgate was happy to leave the youngster on the sidelines given his lack of first-team action.
United believe Greenwood – who also admitted to having ‘bad judgment’ in September after video released of him inhaling nitrous oxide – should focus on his development as a footballer.
