Barcelona 'considering shock move for Mason Greenwood' as Man Utd loan clause confirmed

Barcelona 'considering shock move for Mason Greenwood' as Man Utd loan clause confirmed

Several top clubs are tracking Greenwood.

Manchester United outcast Mason Greenwood is being eyed up by some of the biggest clubs in the world including Barcelona, according to fresh reports.

United forward Greenwood, 22, is currently on loan at Spanish club Getafe.

He joined the La Liga side on a season-long loan in the final hours of the summer transfer window after United decided he would continue his career away from Old Trafford following an internal investigation into his behaviour.

Greenwood was initially suspended by United in January 2022 after being arrested and later charged with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour and assault.

All charges against Greenwood were dropped in February after key witnesses withdrew their involvement in the case and new material came to light during the police investigation.

In a club statement released in August, United announced that their own investigation into Greenwood had found that he "did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged" but also confirmed he would leave Old Trafford.

He has impressed since moving to Spain, scoring five goals and providing four assists in 14 appearances for Getafe.

Greenwood scored one goal and assisted another in Saturday's 3-0 win over Valencia and Getafe have already confirmed they hope to sign the player on a permanent deal.

But they could face competition for his signature.

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have reportedly sent scouts to watch the English forward, while Real Sociedad are also interested.

Greenwood is under contract with United until 2025 with an option to extend for a year.

The Athletic claim that the club's intention is for the player to "complete his rehabilitation" on loan in Spain this season, before securing a permanent move away.

Getafe president Angel Corres has already confirmed the Spanish side are "considering buying" Greenwood after being impressed by his performances.

It is claimed that Getafe inserted a clause into their loan deal with United which entitles them to 20 per cent of any fee if Greenwood is sold to another club.
