Exclusive: One Premier League club that enquired about Mason Greenwood revealed



| Last Updated:


Mason Greenwood has attracted interest from Premier League clubs ahead of his likely exit from Manchester United this summer.

The United loanee has played in La Liga this season with Getafe. In 32 appearances, he has scored 10 goals and registered six assists.

The forward joined the Spanish club on loan in September after United said they wanted to avoid him becoming a distraction despite criminal charges against him being dropped after allegations of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault. Greenwood denied all charges.

The Crown Prosecution Service said there was “no longer a realistic prospect of conviction” after key witnesses withdrew their cooperation and new material came to light.

After his first season back since the charges were dropped, Greenwood has attracted interest in a permanent transfer to clubs in Spain, Italy, and England.

According to a report from the Telegraph this week, at least two clubs in the English top flight have enquired about signing the 22-year-old this summer.

UtdDistrict understands that one of those Premier League clubs to enquire about Greenwood ahead of the transfer window is Chelsea.

However, sources explain that The Blues have not yet registered official interest in signing the on-loan forward. Other Premier League clubs have also reportedly enquired about his situation.

Getafe are also interested in keeping the winger at the club next season. However, they are unlikely to be able to afford the £40 million price tag that United have placed on him.

The president of Getafe, Ángel Torres, has confirmed that United have told the Spanish club that they want to accept a respectable offer for Greenwood this summer and that there are no plans for him to return to Old Trafford.

“If it was up to the lad, his ­parents and the club [Getafe], I think he would continue for another year,” Torres told Radio Marca.

“But regarding Manchester [United], the news that we have from last week, where the [Getafe] sporting director went to England to see some games and was with them, is that, if a good offer comes along, they would want to sell because he is not going to go back there.

“We’ll have to wait until the end of June … the people and the coach are very happy with him. I think he will remain with us for another season or at least until January. He is a good footballer.”

When contacted, Manchester United declined to comment, and Chelsea did not respond after a reasonable period.
