Manchester United's loanee, Mason Greenwood, has reportedly expressed his desire to make a dream move away from the club. According to recent reports, the young striker has communicated his wish to join Barcelona in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Greenwood is currently on a season-long loan with LaLiga club Getafe. Despite being away from Old Trafford, he has made significant strides in La Liga. The 22-year-old attacker has netted five goals and provided four assists in 19 appearances across various competitions for Getafe.
The decision to send Greenwood on loan came amidst controversy last summer. Reports had initially suggested that he would be reintegrated into the Manchester United squad after charges of attempted rape and assault against him were dropped earlier in the year. However, contrary to these reports, Manchester United decided otherwise.
FC Barcelona are interested in signing Greenwood
Now there are claims that Barcelona is keen on signing Greenwood. The player himself seems more than happy with this prospect of joining the Catalan club according to an anonymous source cited by media outlets.
If this move materializes and Greenwood does not return to Old Trafford, he will leave behind a record of 129 appearances across competitions for Manchester United during which he scored 35 goals and assisted on 12 occasions.
A move to Blaugranes could potentially offer regular starts for Greenwood given current circumstances surrounding Robert Lewandowski. At age 35, Lewandowski is rumored to be considering moving away from Barcelona which could open up opportunities for younger players like Greenwood.
This development is sure to keep sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts on their toes as they watch how this transfer saga unfolds.
