“He is staying…Man Utd to ‘offer Mason Greenwood new deal’ in major U-turn

The future of Greenwood at Man Utd continues to be one of the most controversial topics in world football and a fresh report has suggested that a new deal could be on the horizon for the forward.

The Red Devils announced last August that the 22-year-old would not be playing for the club again after their internal investigation into the circumstances around his 2022 arrest and the subsequent dropping of the criminal charges brought against him.

Originally, Man Utd chiefs were thinking of reintegrating Greenwood, who previously played 129 times for the club and scored 35 goals, before some backlash prompted them to change their minds.

He was eventually loaned out to Getafe at the start of this season, where he has been in fine form.

Greenwood has scored six goals and made five assists in 25 LaLiga appearances for the Spanish club this season, who would love to keep hold of him for another season.

The Man Utd loanee’s performances haven’t gone unnoticed and there have been rumours that the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are interested in signing him.

Now, fresh reports have suggested that Getafe are 100% convinced that Man Utd will extend Greenwood’s contract.

According to the Athletic, Getafe ‘suspect that Man Utd have ALREADY given Greenwood a new contract – which is yet to be announced – or at least are planning to do so.

It’s claimed that sources close to the Red Devils have denied this story, but they are yet to make a decision on Greenwood’s future and with that in mind, a major U-turn could be on the cards.

There is still ‘an assumption’ that Greenwood will be sold this summer, however, and that the new deal would be to increase their chances of getting a high transfer fee for him.

Getafe would also ‘benefit’ from a contract extension, as it would ‘increase their chances of signing him on loan again next season.’

Man Utd certainly have an interest in retaining Greenwood’s market value, but whether Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Erik ten Hag make the controversial decision to reintegrate him into the squad remains to be seen.
