Getafe president Angel Torres has said the LaLiga side hope to keep Mason Greenwood for another season and do not expect the forward to return to parent club Manchester United at the end of the campaign.

The 22-year-old joined Getafe on loan in September after United said they wanted to avoid him becoming a distraction, despite all criminal charges against him being dropped following the allegations, which Greenwood- denied, of assault and attempted rape.

He has scored 10 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions for Getafe, who are 10th in LaLiga.

“If it was up to the lad, his parents and the club (Getafe), I think he would continue for another year,” Torres said. Radio Marca Tuesday.

“But as far as Manchester (United), the news we have from last week where the (Getafe) sporting director went to England to watch some games and was with them, is that if a good offer comes, would like to sell. because he will not return there.”

Torres added: “We will have to wait until the end of June… The people and the coach are very happy with him. I think he will stay with us for one more season, or at least until January. He is a good footballer.”

United’s new co-owner Jim Ratcliffe said in February that the club had yet to make a decision on Greenwood’s future, while LaLiga president Javier Tebas said he hoped the forward would extend his stay in Spain.
