Atletico Madrid and Barcelona showed interest in signing Greenwood

Getafe president Angel Torres has stated that Mason Greenwood will not be returning to Manchester United for the upcoming campaign, and he anticipates the forward staying in Spain.

Greenwood, 22, moved from Manchester United to Getafe on a season-long loan in September after prosecutors ended a criminal investigation into an alleged attempted rape.

After pictures and videos of him were made public online, he was charged with assault and controlling and coercive behaviour against a lady. As a result, he hadn’t played for United since January 2022.

“If it was up to the lad, his parents and the club [Getafe], I think he would continue for another year,” Torres told Radio Marca.

“But regarding Manchester [United], the news that we have from last week where the [Getafe] sporting director went to England to see some games and was with them, is that if a good offer comes along, they would want to sell because he is not going to go back there [to Manchester].

“We’ll 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 for 16 months. He has recovered his form, he has scored eight league goals and two in the Copa.

The people and the coach are very happy with him. I think he will remain with us for another season, or at least until January. He is a good footballer.”

“Yes, Man United are prepared to sell Greenwood in case they receive a good proposal”. He could stay here for one more year, we will see”, Ángel Torres told Radio Marca.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a co-owner of New United, stated last month that no determination was currently made about Greenwood’s future, but ESPN was informed by club sources that an extended exit in the summer is still the most likely scenario. In 32 games for the Spanish team in every competition, he has 10 goals and six assists.

ESPN stated just recently that Greenwood’s Old Trafford future was still up for debate. Although Barcelona’s desire to purchase Greenwood has diminished, Atlético Madrid and Barcelona have both shown interest in doing so.

According to ESPN sources, Greenwood and his family have made a good adjustment to Spain, with any initial antagonism soon dissipating.
