Mason Greenwood sends Man United clear message after Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s comments



| Last Updated:


Sir Jim Ratcliffe has spoken about Manchester United loanee Mason Greenwood this week and confirmed that he will be making a fresh decision on the forward’s future.

Greenwood, 22, moved to Getafe on loan in the summer after United made a U-Turn about bringing him back into their squad following public backlash.

This was after the charges of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm against him were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February 2023.

However, Ratcliffe has since stated that he wants to ‘understand the real facts’ before making a new decision.

Following those comments, a report from The Sun has stated that Greenwood would be willing to snub a move to Barcelona if a United return is possible, with the player believing he has a “debt” to pay to supporters and manager Erik ten Hag.

A source close to Greenwood told the paper: “Mason respected the decision Manchester United made to send him to Spain, but he always wanted to return to the team after the police investigation involving him came to an end.

“He believes he has a debt to repay the fans and the manager and would love a second chance.

“To him, Manchester United is the biggest and best club in the world and if a chance emerged for him to go back he would.

“Barcelona are among a number of clubs interested in signing him.

“But if United threw him a lifeline to resurrect his career at Old Trafford, he’d be on the quickest flight home.”

Greenwood has played 24 games this season in Spain, scoring seven goals and registering five assists.
