Getafe interested in permanent deal for Manchester United loanee Greenwood

Getafe are interested in making Mason Greenwood’s loan stay permanent but are yet to discuss a transfer with Manchester United, club president Angel Corres has revealed.

Greenwood joined Getafe on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day in September, with the forward last appearing for United back in January 2022.

Greenwood was arrested and later charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault, with all of those charges being denied by the player.

All charges against him were dropped in February this year after the withdrawal of key witnesses led the Crown Prosecution Service to conclude there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.

However, a widespread backlash to his potential United return led the club to conduct a U-turn on a plan to reintegrate him in August, and he was loaned to Getafe after the Red Devils said it would be “most appropriate” for him to continue his career elsewhere.

Greenwood has scored four goals in 13 appearances for Getafe, who currently sit ninth in LaLiga, and his loan club are open to him extending his stay in Spain.

Asked about Greenwood’s future while conducting a hospital visit on behalf of the club on Tuesday, Getafe president Corres said: “We see any possibility, even buying him.

“We have not talked about the price. We have talked about looking at the situation and seeing what they propose because there will also be a change of shareholding there [at United].

“We are still happy with the meetings we have with them. It is still too early to consider either continuing for one more season or that they will propose a price and we will commit.

“I believe a lot [in Greenwood]. From here, we continue to work periodically, we continue to meet with Manchester to see if they are happy.

“The truth is that they are happy with his treatment, not only from the fans of Getafe, but also from the whole of Spain. Now we have to keep on defending him.

“He didn’t play for 16 months and I think that in January or February he will be able to get the rhythm. He will give us satisfaction.”
