The 22-year-old had no idea that the injury was so serious, after he limped off with just ten minutes left after scoring the winning goal.
Instead stating he was happy to talk about how he had put himself in the shop window after United manager Sir Alex Ferguson agreed that he would let the youngster leave Old Trafford if a bid of £2 million was made.
However, the Red Devils are now likely to hit the Football Association with a claim for compensation as they have now lost Greening for the rest of the season.
The former York ace is not a regular starter, but he is consistently part of the matchday squad for United`s Champions League games, and now Ferguson will be denied Greening`s services from the rest of this year`s competition.
The chance of a prospective move in the summer is also now unlikely for the youngster, who appeared to be set to join one of the number of Premiership clubs that had shown an interest in taking him from United`s reserves.
