Getafe are ‘desperate’ to retain Manchester United star Mason Greenwood

Manchester United star Mason Greenwood will be glad that his loan spell at Getafe has indeed been fruitful, with the young forward impressing with his performances on the pitch. His success has not only endeared him to the Getafe fans but has also attracted interest from Manchester United, his parent club.

Manchester United part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe promised a fresh start to the 22-year-old following taking over of the club. However the Red Devils may consider selling the player as a means to distancing themselves from the negative media that comes with employing his services.

In 22 League appearances playing for Getafe this season, he boasts a tally of five goals and five assists. Whist not exactly prolific, Greenwood’s numbers point to a player very comfortable settling into a new environment and retaining his game style.

The 22-year-old is one of the best players to come out of the United academy in recent years. Should they decide to sell, the Red Devils would loathe to let him go for free. It thus makes sense that cashing in is an option should Ratcliffe decide to do away with his services.

Owing to the fame and eyeballs that Mason Greenwood brings with him, La Liga’s president Javier Tebas recently spoke about how he would want the England ace to have a prolonged career in Spain.

A report by Metro indicated Getafe wanted to sit down with Manchester United and speak about a possible extension of Greenwood’s stay at the club. The La Liga side are desperate to retain their star man.

Mason Greenwood’s positive experience at Getafe, coupled with the support of the club’s fans, has undoubtedly contributed to his satisfaction with the current loan spell. His comfort and popularity at the club could indeed be advantageous both on and off the pitch, as a settled and supported player often performs better.

The interest from Barcelona adds another dimension to Greenwood’s situation, potentially providing him with more options for his future development. However, Manchester United’s reported plan to sell academy stars to benefit from financial regulations could complicate matters, as they may prioritize financial gains over Greenwood’s individual development or potential contributions to the first team.

Ultimately, Greenwood’s next steps will depend on various factors, including his own preferences, Getafe’s desire to retain him, Barcelona’s interest, and Manchester United’s long-term plans for him. It will be interesting to see how these dynamics play out and what decision is ultimately made regarding Greenwood’s future.
