Mason Greenwood’s future at Manchester United is decided, Getafe president claims

Mason Greenwood will not return to Manchester United next season, according to Getafe, who hope to take the striker on loan for another year.

United are aiming to sell the 22-year-old in the summer to raise transfer funds and with the added benefit that as a home-based player he would count as pure profit in the calculations of profitability and sustainability rules.

But after former chief executive Richard Arnold ruled the England international would no longer play for the club, new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe suggested in February that position could be reviewed.

However, Getafe believe Greenwood, who has scored 10 goals for them, wants to stay with the LaLiga club, although they are prepared to wait before any deal is finalised.

“If it were up to the boy, his parents and the club (Getafe), I think he would continue for another year,” Getafe president Ángel Torres told Radio Marca. “But in terms of Manchester (United), the news we have from last week, where the sporting director went to England to watch some games and was with them, is that if a good offer comes, he would like to selling because it is not. going back there (to Manchester).

“We will have to wait until the end of June. The family and the player are very comfortable and very happy here with our fans. When he came here, he hadn’t played in 16 months. He recovered his form, scored eight goals in the league and two in the Copa (del Rey). The people and the coach are very happy with him. I think he will stay with us for another season, or at least until January. He is a good footballer.”

Greenwood has not played for United since January 2022 after he was arrested and charged with attempted rape and assault occasioning bodily harm. Those charges were later dropped when a witness withdrew his cooperation, but after a six-month internal investigation, United decided he should no longer appear for them.
