Man Utd set £72.5bn price tag for ‘Giggs successor’

Mason Greenwood is unlikely to play in Spanish La Liga next season, according to speculation.

Spain’s ‘Marca’ reported on Thursday (June 14), “It has become impossible for Greenwood to continue playing for Getafe. Manchester United have decided to sell him, but with a price tag of around €50 million. It’s an amount Getafe can’t afford. The same goes for Barcelona. They are also interested in Greenwood, but they can’t afford it,” the report said.

Greenwood is a 2001-born English prospect who came up through the United youth academy. He earned enough first-team minutes to earn the trust of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the 2019-20 season. In 31 Premier League (PL) appearances (12 starts, 19 substitute appearances), he scored 10 goals.

Expectations were high for Greenwood. But in January 2022, the news came as a shock. “Greenwood was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and death threats,” the BBC reported. The case began when his girlfriend released photos and audio recordings of the assault on social media, which showed a conversation in which the man she believed to be Greenwood attempted to sexually assault her.

The club quickly issued a statement saying, “We will not tolerate violence of any kind. Until further notice, Greenwood is suspended from playing and training.” The club also stopped selling Greenwood’s jersey in its official store.

In time, all charges against Greenwood were dropped and the case was over. Greenwood then publicly expressed his desire to return to the club. In fact, he reportedly met with manager Eric ten Haag and the club to express his desire to play for United again.

However, it was ultimately not to be. The club said last summer, “We have concluded our internal investigation into Mr. Greenwood. It concluded that he had not committed the offenses he was accused of. However, everyone involved, including Greenwood, realized that playing for United was no longer an option. He has decided to leave the club by mutual consent to join another organization.”

It was not a mutual termination of the contract. Greenwood left on loan to Getafe. Because of his loan status, he will 메이저토토사이트 have to return to his original club at the end of the contract. Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano explained: “Greenwood is playing on loan at Getafe. He will officially return to United in June 2024.”

Greenwood has settled in well at Getafe. He has been performing well and slowly making his mark despite not playing for a long period of time. He currently has six goals and five assists in 23 Spanish La Liga appearances (20 starts, three substitutions).

As a result, several teams have started to take an interest in Greenwood. Getafe, who currently have Greenwood on loan, are among the favorites, as well as Barcelona. In the first place, United will decide on Greenwood”s future at the end of the season, but they”re also considering a sale. They have set a transfer fee of €50 million for the player.
