Mason Greenwood is set to make a return to Manchester United, and the club is prepared to entrust their new sporting director with the decision regarding his future. The 22-year-old forward was loaned to La Liga side Getafe in September 2023, and the agreement has been extended until the end of the season. Greenwood’s impressive performances in Spain have attracted interest from clubs like Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
Upon bidding farewell to United, Greenwood was deemed to have no future in Manchester, with his last appearance for the Premier League club preceding his arrest in January 2022 on charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control. The charges were dropped in February 2023, allowing Greenwood to resume his professional career. However, there has been no pathway for him to return to United.
According to Fabrizio Romano, a decision on Greenwood’s long-term future will be deferred until Manchester United appoints a new sporting director. Romano stated that with the impending return of Jadon Sancho from a loan spell at Borussia Dortmund, both players will await the decision of the new sporting director. Romano suggested that discussions about Greenwood’s future are likely to take place in May or June, emphasizing the need for a responsible decision-maker.
