Getafe are said to be struggling to sign Mason Greenwood on a permanent basis next summer. It is because of the number of clubs interested in signing him from Manchester United.
After being told by the 20-time English champions that his career with them was over, the forward joined Getafe on loan over the summer, and he has been in excellent form for the La Liga club, scoring four goals and registering three assists in 11 appearances across all competitions.
The 22-year-old is set to return to Old Trafford in June, with 18 months remaining on his contract with the Red Devils.
Respected journalist Jamie Jackson recently stated that there is a chance that Greenwood will be reinstated at Manchester United, but it appears highly unlikely.
According to a recent report, a number of Premier League clubs are keeping a close eye on the forward’s situation, but it is expected that he will join a Spanish club permanently next year.
Getafe to Battle Real Sociedad and Valencia for Greenwood
According to The Sun, Real Sociedad and Valencia are both keen on signing him, with the pair ahead of Getafe in the race for a permanent move.
According to the report, Greenwood ‘has really settled’ in Spain and is willing to commit to a long-term move to a Spanish club during the summer transfer window.
Real Sociedad is currently competing in the Champions League and will be looking to return to the competition next season, so the club could potentially offer him the chance to play top-level European football again after previously appearing on 10 occasions in the competition for Manchester United.
After completing an investigation into the events that led to his arrest in early 2022, the Red Devils decided in August that Greenwood would not represent the club again.
Greenwood was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault after a woman accused him, and he was later arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill.
Greenwood was also charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault causing actual bodily harm, but the CPS said all charges were dropped earlier this year.
