Major Mason Greenwood transfer hint as Getafe ‘already line up replacement for Man Utd star’

GETAFE’S hopes of keeping Mason Greenwood might be fading – as the Spaniards are being linked with another top striker.

Greenwood is unlikely to rejoin parent club Manchester United but a Saudi Pro League club are tipped to bid £50million-plus for the Englishman.

Barcelona, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are also keen on the 22-year-old.

But despite so much interest from richer rivals, Getafe publicly insist they believe their star loanee will stay with them until “at least January”.

Nonetheless, reports in Spain reckon the mid-table LaLiga club are also weighing up a bid for Real Sociedad’s Umar Sadiq.

The Nigerian frontman, 27, is under contract until 2028 but has struggled to regain his best form since an ankle injury two years ago.

And this season he has scored just three goals in 36 games across LaLiga, the Spanish Cup and the Europa League.

That faltering form means Sociedad boss Imanol now prefers Portugal star Andre Silva and Sheraldo Becker to Sadiq in attack.

However, Getafe are rated as major admirers of the ex-Roma star.

And that strengthens suggestions that their chances of retaining Greenwood are weaker than they’d hope.

However, they maintain they are confident of keeping the Old Trafford academy product next term.

Club president Angel Torres told Spanish radio station Radio Marca this week: “If it was up to the lad, his parents and the club, I think he would continue for another year.

“Regarding Manchester United, the news from last week, where the sporting director went to England and was with them, is that, if a good offer comes along, they would want to sell because he is not going to go back there.

“We’ll have to wait until the end of June. The people and the coach are very happy with him.

“I think he will remain with us for another season, or at least until January.”
