Real Sociedad and Valencia in Hot Pursuit of Mason Greenwood
The attacker joined Getafe on loan during the summer after receiving word from the 20-time English champions that his time with them was up. In 11 games across all competitions, he has scored four goals and provided three assists for the La Liga team.
The 22-year-old has 18 months remaining on his Red Devils deal, and he is scheduled to return to Old Trafford in June of next year.
Reputable reporter Jamie Jackson recently stated that although it seems extremely unlikely, there is a chance that Greenwood could be brought back into the picture at Man United.
Although a number of Premier League teams are reportedly closely monitoring the forward’s position, it is anticipated that he will sign a permanent contract with a Spanish team for the upcoming season.
The Sun claims that Real Sociedad and Valencia are both keen to sign him, and that they are in the lead over Getafe in terms of a long-term transfer.
Greenwood ‘has truly settled’ in Spain, according to the source, and he is willing to finalise a long-term transfer to a Spanish team during the summer transfer window of 2019.
After making ten appearances in the Champions League for Manchester United, Real Sociedad is competing in the competition this season and hopes to return the following year.
As a result, the club may provide him another opportunity to play at the highest level of European football.
Greenwood’s detention in early 2022 was the subject of an inquiry that the Red Devils concluded in August, at which point the player announced his retirement from the team.
Greenwood was detained on suspicion of rape and violence after a lady made claims against him. He was then detained on suspicion of sexual assault and making threats to kill.
In addition, Greenwood was charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault resulting in actual bodily harm. However, according to the CPS, all of these allegations were withdrawn earlier this year.
Erik ten Hag, the head coach, is reported to have expected to have the forward in his squad for the upcoming season. Man United is thought to have made the decision to bring him back into the first team before altering their minds in response to the public criticism.
In ten La Liga games this season, Greenwood has two goals and three assists. In one Copa del Rey game, he has two goals and one assist.
The forward scored in Getafe’s most recent league match, a 2-1 victory over Almeria, and he will play again on Friday night against Las Palmas.
