Mason Greenwood releases transfer statement after Getafe loan ends



| Last Updated:


Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has released a statement following his loan spell at Getafe last season.

The situation with Mason Greenwood and Manchester United has been complex over the past two years.

In January 2022, Greenwood was suspended from the squad following allegations of domestic violence. About a year later, the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the charges against him.

United then conducted their own investigation into the matter. Despite initially planning to reintegrate Greenwood into the team under Erik ten Hag, the club ultimately decided against it due to fan pressure. Instead, they chose to send Greenwood on loan for the season.

At the end of the 2023 summer transfer window, Greenwood joined Getafe. He has since excelled, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in 35 appearances for the La Liga club.

It has been widely reported that Greenwood has enjoyed his time in Spain and that Getafe would like to keep the 22-year-old for another season on loan.

However, United will also be aware that they can make a profit on the forward who came through the club’s academy during a difficult period in terms of financial fair play regulations. Figures of around £40 million have been rumoured to be his price tag.

That essentially takes Getafe out of the equation, who could only offer Greenwood a return to the club on loan.

Following his final game for the La Liga side, Greenwood sent out a message which suggested that he would not be returning and instead would either rejoin United or leave the club permanently.

“Incredibly grateful to the Getafe family and fans for an amazing season, Thank you for making me feel welcomed and one of your own. I enjoyed every second, alongside my teammates and club,” he wrote on his Instagram page.

“A bitter sweet ending, but it was a pleasure to play for you, I wish you all the best.”
