Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood is edging close to a move to Barcelona

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood is edging closer to a move to Barcelona having been monitored by the La Liga giants all season, according to the Sun.

The Red Devils academy graduate moved to Getafe on loan last summer after his parent club decided it was best for both parties to part ways after his legal troubles.

He was arrested in January 2022 and subsequently charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour in October 2022.

While the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dropped the charges against him due to a withdrawal of key witnesses in February 2023, Man United are ready to sell him.

Barcelona hope to tie up a deal soon to make Greenwood their player in June, and the 22-year-old is also keen on joining them.

An agreement between both clubs is next on the agenda as Barca have been impressed having scouted him six times this season.

Valencia and Real Sociedad are also keeping tabs on the Man United-owned forward following his return of three goals and four assists in 16 La Liga games, while Getafe inserted a 20% sell-on clause in the deal that brought him to Spain on loan despite paying nothing for him.

Greenwood still dreams of playing for the England national team, but his chances are slim due to the mess he landed himself in two years ago.

A move to Barcelona would be massive for Greenwood, and he has the potential to become a big player for the club.

While his Premier League career may have ended abruptly, the Man United attacker is slowly re-establishing himself in the Spanish top flight.

He could soon be turning out for one of the biggest clubs on the planet and playing regular Champions League football if the rumours are true.
