Mason Greenwood aims to settle Manchester United debt, preferring Old Trafford stay over Barcelona

Ratcliffe's emphasis on prioritizing facts over hype suggests a possible reconciliation for Greenwood, who faced uncertainty after being arrested in January 2022.

Ratcliffe has emphasized the importance of focusing on “facts, not hype,” which could hint at a potential reconciliation for Greenwood. Following his arrest in January 2022 on charges including attempted rape, Greenwood wasn’t anticipated to play for United again. However, recent reports from The Sun suggest that Greenwood would resist a move to Barcelona if United expressed interest, citing a sense of indebtedness to the Old Trafford club.

Speculations suggest both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are keen on signing Greenwood, prompting United to set a new price tag of €40 million (£34m/$43m) for the striker. United might face significant backlash if they profit substantially from Greenwood’s sale, given his past controversies.

Since his move to Getafe, Greenwood has featured in 24 games, scoring seven goals and providing five assists. During his time at United, he scored 35 goals across 129 appearances.

Greenwood could feature for Getafe against Barcelona this weekend, a match that could serve as an evaluation for potential suitors. Subsequently, they are set to play Las Palmas at home next weekend.
