Barcelona and Atletico Madrid Set for Summer Showdown Over Manchester United Outcast Mason Greenwood

Reports suggest that both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have shown keen interest in signing Manchester United outcast Mason Greenwood during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old striker is currently on loan at Getafe and has attracted attention with his impressive performances in LaLiga.

Greenwood’s Successful Spell at Getafe

After Manchester United offloaded Greenwood last summer, the young striker found a new home at Getafe, where he has excelled on the pitch.

Scoring five goals and providing five assists in 21 LaLiga appearances, Greenwood’s performance has caught the eye of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, both of whom are reportedly preparing to compete for his signature.

United Open to Greenwood Sale

Manchester United, ready to part ways with Greenwood, have set an asking price of €40 million (£34 million) for potential suitors.

Greenwood’s contract with Manchester United runs until June 2025, making this summer the last opportunity for the club to secure a substantial fee for the talented striker.

Getafe’s Desire to Retain Greenwood

Getafe, where Greenwood is currently on loan, is interested in extending the loan deal for another year. However, financial constraints prevent Getafe from affording Greenwood’s £75,000-a-week salary.

The striker’s future in Spain remains uncertain, with potential suitors Barcelona and Atletico Madrid entering the scene.

Controversy Surrounds Greenwood: Bellingham Incident

Despite his success on the field, Greenwood was involved in a recent controversy during a match against Real Madrid.

England star Jude Bellingham was alleged to have insulted Greenwood, with some fans believing he used a derogatory term referencing charges that were dropped against Greenwood in January 2022.

Getafe has reported the incident to LaLiga, which is now investigating the matter.

Investigation and Potential Ramifications for Bellingham

LaLiga authorities are currently investigating the incident, and Getafe has enlisted a lip-reader to help determine the nature of Bellingham’s alleged insult.

If it is concluded that Bellingham indeed insulted Greenwood, the England international could face disciplinary action, including a potential ban.
