Champions League club now 'favourite' to sign Mason Greenwood after stepping up interest in Man Utd striker

A club in the Champions League is currently the favourite to sign on-loan Manchester United attacker Mason Greenwood, it has been claimed.

Last season, Greenwood was suspended by United as the club internally investigated his conduct.

The suspension came as Greenwood saw charges of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm dropped following the withdrawal of a key witness. Greenwood vehemently denied the accusations.

In a statement upon the conclusion of the investigation, United said they had no expectation Greenwood would play for the club again and the forward was subsequently sent on a season-long loan to Getafe, with United covering his wages.


Although the one-cap England international is yet to return to the sort of form that saw him earn a reputation among the world’s best young players, the 22-year-old has made a valued contribution at Getafe.

Having scored four goals and provided three assists in his 12 appearances in all competitions, Greenwood has reportedly attracted attention from clubs further up the food chain.


According to Spanish publication Todo Fichajes, Real Sociedad have emerged as the “favourite” to sign Greenwood.


The club are reportedly keeping close tabs on the United loanee’s development at Getafe and have received “very good reports” at Getafe.

Meanwhile, Valencia are also said to be interested in a loan deal for Greenwood, but such a move would reportedly be “more complicated”.

Real Sociedad could lose key players at the end of the season, and the acquisition of Greenwood to bolster their forward line may be a “priority” by the summer.

It is unlikely Greenwood will ever return to United, despite Erik ten Hag's men having struggled in the early part of the 2023/24 Premier League season.
