Mason Greenwood chooses Manchester United transfer destination with “final step” left



| Last Updated:


Mason Greenwood has chosen his destination and wants to sign for Barcelona this summer, according to reports.

Mason Greenwood will never play for Manchester United again after the club confirmed that he would spend this season on loan at La Liga club Getafe after allegations of domestic abuse.

Although the CPS dropped his case and Greenwood was cleared of all charges, there were protests when the club tried to bring him back to Erik ten Hag‘s club, with the player subsequently going out on loan.

He has played 19 games for Getafe this season, scoring five goals and providing a further four assists, and now it has been said that he wants to join Barcelona in the summer, with the Catalan club keen on bringing him in.

“Barcelona want to sign Greenwood, and he wants to move there. The next step is for the clubs to come to an agreement,” a source told The Sun, who have been following Greenwood’s journey in La Liga closely.

“Manchester United want to sell the player, and the manager has accepted Greenwood won’t be returning. The view is that it is best for all parties to have a clean break. As talented as Greenwood is, a return to the club when they are at the start of a new chapter with new owners is regarded as a backward step.

“A deal with Barcelona is likely to include a number of add-ons depending on games Mason goes on to play for them and possibly for England too. Mason is setting his sights on playing for his country again one day.

“Time will tell on that, but for the moment, Mason is focused on further making a name for himself in La Liga. He hit the ground running at Getafe and played well, which is why Barcelona want him.

“They think he is a player who can help take them to the next level both in the domestic competitions and in Europe and is one for the future. They think Greenwood would also be an exciting signing for the fans. They’ve sent scouts to watch him six times this season, and the reports have been overwhelmingly positive.”
