Man Utd squad make Mason Greenwood return decision after Sir Jim Ratcliffe stance confirmed

Man Utd squad make Mason Greenwood return decision after Sir Jim Ratcliffe stance confirmed

Greenwood is currently on loan at Getafe.

Manchester United players have reportedly decided if Mason Greenwood should be allowed to return to the club.

Greenwood joined La Liga outfit Getafe on loan last summer, having not played for the United since his January 2022 arrest for attempted rape, controlling behaviour and assault.

The 22-year-old denied the accusations and later had all charges against him dropped.

United and Greenwood agreed it would be better for the forward to continue his career away from Old Trafford.

Since moving to Getafe, Greenwood has scored six league goals and registered five assists.

United minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe refused to close the door on a return for the ex-England international in an interview last month.

Per The Sun, Greenwood's teammates have secretly claimed they wouldn't be against him coming back.

A source told the publication: "His teammates would not be against him returning to Old Trafford.

"They know all about the background and understand how controversial it would be to have him back.

Their decision is a footballing one, pure and simple. United have struggled to score goals this season and they need a player like Mason.

"They’re watching him score and create goals for Getafe every week."

Greenwood's contract with the Red Devils expires in 2025. He's been linked with a move to Barcelona, although the Catalan giants will not meet United’s valuation, believed to be between £34.2million and £51.3million.

Last week, England manager Gareth Southgate was asked if Greenwood could make a return to the squad.

His sole appearance for the Three Lions came from the bench in a UEFA Nations League game against Iceland in September 2020.

Southgate said: "Well, for me, I don’t think it’s something for pre-Euros. I think allowing him to get his career going again abroad appears to have been a good move but I have to say I have not tracked it closely.

"I think at this moment in time it would be a big distraction for the team and let’s see where that leads next season.

"I would need to know more details about the whole thing before it was an option."
