Getafe think Man United have secretly extended Mason Greenwood’s contract



| Last Updated:


Getafe think that Manchester United have already triggered a contract for Mason Greenwood ahead of a potential sale this summer.

The fact that Manchester United will be selling Mason Greenwood this summer is no secret after the club announced last summer that the academy graduate would never play for the club again.

This decision was the result of the player being arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse in January 2022. Although the CPS eventually dropped the case, United carried out their own internal investigation and, due to fan pressure, ultimately decided that Greenwood would recommence his career away from Old Trafford.

The Englishman was then loaned to Spanish club Getafe on deadline day last summer. He has since played 27 times, scoring eight goals and providing five assists.

There has been significant speculation surrounding his future, and many have thought that United will attempt to cash in this summer as his current contract expires in 2025—but United installed an option to extend this for a further year should they wish to do so.

According to The Athletic, Getafe feel that this clause has already been triggered with the La Liga club coming away from talks with United the understanding that Greenwood’s deal will now run until 2026.

There have been concerns that announcing Greenwood’s contract extension would create further backlash from fans.

United maintain that no decision has been made thus far. They express no urgency in exercising the option, as they retain the flexibility to do so until May 2025.

Although not bound by any obligation, the club typically announces the activation of contract extensions or at least provides a media briefing on the matter.
