The beautiful piece of legwork by Greenwood took his goal tally for Getafe to 4 goals. He has now contributed 8 times for the club, having bagged 4 La Liga assists as well.
Manchester United decided to loan out Greenwood to Getafe last summer after he came out unscathed from the club’s investigations into assault claims.
As per the Sun, United under former CEO, Richard Arnold, wanted to reintegrate Mason Greenwood into Man United squad after the investigations but feared heavy media backlash and scrutiny should the youngster return to action with the club.
As a result, he was loaned to Getafe at the stroke of last summer’s transfer window. Since his summer move to the Madrid-based outfit, Greenwood has made headlines with his remarkable performances for the club.
He has attracted interest from top La Liga clubs with Getafe interested in a permanent move as well.
Greenwood’s contract with Manchester United will expire in 2025 with his Man United future yet to be determined.
