What Manchester United told Getafe president about Mason Greenwood loan next season



| Last Updated:



Getafe president Ángel Torres has explained what Manchester United told him this week about Mason Greenwood’s future.

Greenwood, 22, has been on loan at the La Liga side all season. He has 10 goals and six assists in all competitions and was nominated for the Young Player of the Season.

The United forward joined the Spanish club on loan in September after the Old Trafford club 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.

Now, it appears likely that he will leave United on a permanent transfer in the summer window and Getafe do not have the capacity to fund a £40 million transfer, which is in the range of what the Premier League club will be looking for.

Despite this, Ángel Torres has explained that Greenwood wants to stay at the club for another season and he predicts that will end up happening.

The president of Getafe did add that United want to sell the player permanently if a good offer comes in, adding that Greenwood “is not” going back 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.”
