Mason Greenwood, after embarking on a temporary journey with Getafe, may find the doors of Old Trafford open for him next summer.
Despite the 22-year-old’s suspension and arrest on several charges, including attempted rape in January 2022, all allegations were eventually dropped in February, leading to an internal review by Manchester United regarding his status.
According to insights from Jamie Jackson of The Guardian, Greenwood’s future with the Red Devils may not be entirely sealed.
Sharing details with Stretford Paddock, Jackson revealed acquiring knowledge about a potential Greenwood announcement in August, during Manchester United’s pre-season tour in Las Vegas.
Although the official stance suggested Greenwood might not wear the United jersey again, Jackson believes the club would have been more definitive about his future if a final decision had been made.
What adds more intrigue to the story is that before Greenwood’s unfortunate incident in January 2022, some insiders at the club reportedly touted him as Manchester United’s top performer.
Jackson also highlighted whispers suggesting key figures at United, including the likes of manager Erik ten Hag and football director John Murtough, were keen on Greenwood’s return after charges against him were dismissed.
However, given Greenwood’s current stint at Getafe and the lukewarm start, questions arise about his capability to reignite the spark he once had. With Greenwood’s contract set to conclude in 2025, the Manchester United board will be faced with a pivotal choice in the coming summer.
