Man United make contact with Getafe to discuss Mason Greenwood's future

Manchester United director of football John Murtough and director of football negotiations Matt Hargreaves travelled to Spain for a sit-down with Getafe chiefs to discuss Mason Greenwood’s future.

While United sources have branded the trip as ‘routine business’, Marca reports that Greenwood’s future was one of the major talking points from the meeting.

The 22-year-old has been a remarkable piece of business for the Spanish outfit, who took a chance on him following his acquittal from sexual and physical assault charges.

Despite spending over two years on the sidelines, Greenwood has taken to life in Spain with aplomb, bagging eight goals and five assists in 26 appearances across all competitions.

Although his form at Coliseum Alfonso Perez has been impressive, a return to Old Trafford seems highly unlikely. 

While United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe hasn’t entirely shut the door on reintegrating him into the squad, reports suggest Greenwood may not be keen on playing for the club again.

Greenwood’s impressive performances have garnered attention from Spanish heavyweights Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, although neither have acted on their interest yet.

While his ideal preference would be to return to a European tournament next season, Greenwood is happy at Getafe, with the club also keen to retain his services.

The United academy graduate has one year left on his contract with the Red Devils but could still command around £40-45 million in the event of a potential departure.

While Getafe will struggle to match United’s demands, they are exploring the possibility of extending his loan for an additional year.

However, United are unlikely to sanction that deal unless Greenwood agrees to a contract extension that gives them more control over his future.

Greenwood also has interest from Middle Eastern clubs, and it will be interesting to see where the rising star ends up after an excellent revival at Getafe.
