Mason Greenwood joins Getafe on loan from Manchester United

Mason Greenwood has joined Spanish club Getafe on loan from Manchester United.

The Athletic had reported earlier on transfer deadline day that the La Liga club were in talks to sign the forward.

There will be no fee for the season-long loan and Getafe will make only a small contribution to Greenwood’s salary.

United announced the move late on Friday evening and said in a statement: “The move enables Greenwood to begin to rebuild his career away from Manchester United.

“The club will continue to offer its support to Mason and his family during this period of transition.”

United confirmed on August 21 that that they had abandoned their plan to bring the 21-year-old back into the first-team squad and they were working with the player to find a new club to restart his career.

He had been subject to an internal investigation from United since February when the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) discontinued its case against him for attempted rape, assault, and coercive control. Greenwood denied all the alleged offences.

Several clubs in the Premier League, Italy, Germany and Spain had been contacted about a move.

Greenwood has not played since January 22, 2022.
