In a surprising turn of events, Barcelona are allegedly eyeing up a move for disgraced United winger, Mason Greenwood.

As Tony Juanmati of SPORT reports, the Catalan giants have made an initial attempt in exploring the possibility of nabbing the 22-year-old Englishman.

According to the report, the United man is highly rated by Barcelona, and they are open to the idea of signing him in the summer.

He is viewed as a low-cost, high return option to bolster their attack with main hitman Robert Lewandowski ageing.

The Spanish club has already made some moves to contact Greenwood, although they have not made a commitment of any sort.

His exploits at fellow La Liga side Getafe have piqued Barça’s interest in the forward.

He has been at Getafe on loan since last summer, making 26 appearances for the club.

He has certainly made himself a nuisance to La Liga defenders, scoring 8 goals and assisting 5 more. Averaging a goal or assist every 2 games is certainly decent enough output to garner attention from top clubs.

Barça’s idea for Greenwood is to cover the left side of attack, which will potentially be left wanting after João Félix’s loan ends.

Greenwood is extremely versatile on account of his ambidexterity and can be deployed on any of the 3 attacking position, although he prefers coming in from the right or leading the line.

His current contract with United ends next year, which could make this summer very interesting. It is perhaps the last chance for United to make a sale and make some profit.

Greenwood’s current market value is only around 7 and a half million euros, and for someone of his quality, that’s a bargain and a half!

Barça’s finances have been an utter mess since Bartomeu’s days as president, and they will be looking to see how their checks and balances are looking come the summer before making some real decisions.
