Mason Greenwood has been making a name for himself in Spain since joining Getafe on loan last summer from Manchester United.

He seems to be slowly settling in La Liga away from the glaring English press and is playing some decent stuff for Getafe, especially considering he hadn’t played professionally in two odd years.

Greenwood has six goals and five assists in La Liga this season in 23 outings. Only Diego Rico, with seven, has managed more assists for Getafe so far in the current campaign.

According to a report by The Insider, Greenwood has made the decision of staying in Spain beyond the summer and is drawn to staying at Getafe.

It was earlier reported by The Sun late last week that Spanish giants Barcelona were weighing up a move for the 22-year-old winger. Barcelona were looking to entice Manchester United with a swap deal with either of their numerous rising stars from La Masia.

It is unclear whether Greenwood feels like a move to a high profile club like Barça could thrust him back into the limelight he has been doing so well away from.

This recent decision is a blow to Barcelona and Joan Laporta’s plans, as they were looking at Mason Greenwood as a low-cost but high return option to bolster their fickle attack.

The implication on Manchester United and Sir Jim is perhaps not as big. If anything, it makes their decision much easier should they decide to offload him.

Talks are set to continue over Greenwood’s future, and it’s still not clear where he will play his football next season. In the meantime, the forward is due to return to action with Getafe on Saturday in La Liga as Jose Bordalas’s side take on high-flying Girona.
