Getafe’s reported £40 million bid for Mason Greenwood has been matched by European giants as interest in the Manchester United player grows.
Greenwood was arrested with charges of domestic abuse and threats to kill in January 2022, but the case was eventually dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service, with the player free to play football once again.
He joined Getafe on loan last summer in the eleventh hour and has since scored five goals for the club, with the Madrid-based outfit reportedly offering United £40 million to make his services permanent.
However, according to The Sun, who have followed Greenwood closely during his time in La Liga, Barcelona are planning to match this bid, offering further incentives to Greenwood to sweeten the deal.
According to the report, Barcelona are also willing to offer the 22-year-old the iconic No. 10 shirt, most notably worn by Lionel Messi, in an attempt to bring Greenwood to the Catalan club.
United have been adamant that Greenwood will not play for the club again and want to see him finish his one-year loan at Getafe before likely cashing in on him in the summer.
