Manchester United's new bosses are reportedly considering bringing Mason Greenwood back to the club in a surprising U-turn. The 22-year-old striker has impressed during his season-long loan at Getafe FC, scoring four goals in 11 matches, including a wonder strike against Almeria.
Greenwood joined Getafe on loan after an investigation into his off-field behavior prevented him from continuing his career at Old Trafford. However, he is still technically a United player as he is only on loan at the Spanish club.
With a new board and CEO set to take control of Manchester United, the club's transfer business is expected to be approached differently. Discussions about Greenwood's situation and future are expected to take place in the coming months.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the incoming co-owner, is already discussing Greenwood's situation internally. However, no decisions have been made yet, and it is expected that the club will wait until March, April, or May to evaluate Greenwood's performances at Getafe.
There are many factors to consider in Greenwood's potential return to Manchester United, including the new board's decisions and the player's performances. The club will have new people in charge of the transfer market, and they will all decide on transfer business together.
Greenwood was arrested in January last year on charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control. However, all charges were dropped by the CPS, and he maintains his innocence.
Valencia and Real Sociedad are reportedly monitoring Greenwood and could make a move for him in the summer. It is unlikely that he will return to Manchester United, as he is thriving in Spain and has settled well personally and professionally.
Greenwood is grateful for the support he has received from Getafe and feels that his career is on the rise after a difficult period. His performances have caught the attention of other clubs, and offers may come in at the end of the season.
