Manchester United’s plan for Mason Greenwood leads Getafe into public remark following the Ratcliffe update

According to, Getafe president Angel Torres has stated that he believes Mason Greenwood wants to stay with his club beyond this season, whether on loan or permanently. His comments follow Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s announcement that the Manchester United academy product may return to his newly bought Premier League club at the end of the season, with discussions set to take place this summer.

Following a protracted internal probe last year, United’s old sporting leadership decided in August that Greenwood’s future should be elsewhere, and a loan transfer to Getafe was arranged. The judgement came after the Crown Prosecution Service withdrew charges against the forward for rape and coercive behaviour, which the 22-year-old rejected.

However, Ratcliffe has not ruled out giving Greenwood a chance at Old Trafford. The INEOS owner stated earlier this week that negotiations over the England international’s future will take place at the conclusion of the season, with a return to United being a possibility. Torres, Getafe’s manager, does not believe Greenwood will want to return to the Red Devils at the conclusion of the season, admitting that the versatile attacker is satisfied in La Liga and expects to stay with the club beyond the current season.

Torres told Spanish radio station Cope that he has a clear conscience, is extremely comfortable, and is eager to remain another year. It is up to them [United] to make a decision. There is new ownership. They have to make a decision.”In Spain, he has a market, but Barcelona has money. Barcelona’s style of play would fit him perfectly, but that depends on Manchester United. If it is true, he will inform me.”

Greenwood will almost probably have a say in where he plays next season, with Barcelona and numerous Italian clubs said to be keeping a close eye on his status. Ratcliffe will ultimately have the most say of everyone participating in negotiations over the loanee.

Earlier this week, he stated, “He is a Manchester United footballer, so we are in charge of football.” So the response is, ‘Yeah, we have to make decisions’. It’s evident that we need to make a decision. No decision has been taken. He is plainly on loan, but he is not alone. We have one or two footballers to deal with, and we need to make a choice, so we will.

“The approach will be to grasp the facts, not the hype, and then attempt to make a fair choice based on values, which is essentially whether he is a decent man or not. Could he play truly for Manchester United, would we and the supporters be okay with it?”
