La Liga president urges Mason Greenwood to stay in Spain with three clubs interested in Man Utd loanee

La Liga president urges Mason Greenwood to stay in Spain with three clubs interested in Man Utd loanee

Mason Greenwood is currently on loan at La Liga side Getafe from Manchester United.

La Liga president Javier Tebas has urged Mason Greenwood to remain in Spain as speculation over his future continues to mount.

After criminal charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control against him were dropped by Crown Prosecution Service in February 2023, Greenwood has resumed his playing career away from Manchester United.

Following a lengthy internal investigation he was loaned out to La Liga side Getafe in a mutual decision.

He has scored seven goals and contributed with five assists in 25 appearances in all competitions, with his performances leading to links to Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Getafe are also understood to be keen on signing him permanently, though they could be price out of a potential deal.

But La Liga chief Tebas wants the 22-year-old to continue playing in the Spanish top flight.

Speaking at the Financial Times Business of Football Summit, Tebas said: "Maybe the circumstances have made it easier for him to come but he’s a great player and I have got no other comments to make.

"He’s doing really well at Getafe as a player and I hope he continues to be successful and he continues to stay in Spanish football because that’s always good for us.

"When someone isn’t condemned, what should we have done? This is what courts exist for. It is not up to me to know his case in detail. He is just another player."

A recent report from The Athletic claims that a La Liga team is Greenwood's most likely next destination.

Getafe plan to invite United officials to one of their upcoming matches to discuss Greenwood, though sources in the dressing believe they will not be able to afford him.

Last week, new United minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe opened the door to Greenwood returning to Old Trafford, telling The Athletic: "We need to look at facts".

A separate report claims that Ratcliffe wants a decision on Greenwood's future to happen by the end of May.
