The 21-year-old has not played a competitive game in 20 months after he was arrested in January 2022 for attempted rape, controlling behaviour and assault.
United carried out an internal investigation after all charges against Greenwood were dropped in February this year, and after several months of deliberation, the club opted not to reintegrate the forward back into Erik ten Hag’s squad.
Greenwood, who also had the option to join Italian side Lazio, will now restart his career in Spain after he joined La Liga side Getafe on loan for the rest of the season in the final hour of the summer transfer window.
According to The Sun, Getafe are preparing for Greenwood to make his debut in their La Liga match against on Sunday as he has impressed in their training sessions during the international break.
‘Mason was very nervous about how he would be received by his new team-mates and his coaches but they have been very welcoming to him,’ a source told The Sun.
‘He feels relaxed in their company and a couple of the Spanish lads have taken him under their wing.
‘He can’t believe how well its gone and how quickly his life has changed.
‘He has been very very low at times while he was suspended by United and within the space of a few days he has fans chanting his name again.
‘He was scared to walk down the street in England because he was worried he would be attacked or abused.
‘In Spain, he’s able to wander around freely. He’s been able to concentrate 100 per cent on his football and want to get back to playing as soon as possible.”
‘The coaching staff have been impressed with his sharpness and plan to throw him in as soon as they can.’
