Mason Greenwood ‘has a clear conscience and is crazy about staying ANOTHER YEAR’ at Getafe, claims their club president – after Sir Jim Ratcliffe opened the door over loanee’s return to Man United at the end of the season


  • Mason Greenwood was arrested on suspicion of attempted rape in 2022 
  • Charges were dropped last year, but he left Man United on loan in September 
  • While Pep Guardiola is at Manchester City, it’s going to be difficult for anybody to knock them off their perch – Listen to the It’s All Kicking Off podcast 

Getafe president Angel Torres has insisted that Mason Greenwood would favour staying at the LaLiga outfit beyond the end of his season-long loan from Manchester United

The England striker was suspended in January 2022 after he was arrested on suspicion of raping and assaulting a woman.

Greenwood was subsequently charged with a number of offences which were then dropped – and he was sent to Getafe on loan until the end of the season in September following a United probe into his behaviour. He has always denied any wrongdoing. 

It had been understood that academy product Greenwood would not play for United again. However, upon completing his £1.3billion minority investment in the Manchester club, Sir Jim Ratciffe appeared to open the door to a return, saying that a ‘fresh decision’ will need to be made. 

Torres, though, has remained optimistic of keeping hold of the 22-year-old beyond this term and even claimed the Greenwood would prefer to stay at the club.

He has a clear conscience,’ Torres told Spanish radio station Cope. ‘He is very comfortable and crazy about staying another year.

‘It’s a matter that they [United] have to decide. There is new ownership. They have to decide. In Spain, he has a market but they [Barcelona] have money. Barca’s way of playing would suit him well but it depends on Manchester United. If it’s true, he’ll tell me.’

Greenwood has been impressive in spurts for Jose Bordalas’ side, who sit 10th in LaLiga. He has five goals and five assists from 21 league outings this term.

Ratcliffe’s comments earlier this week came as some surprise, though the INEOS chief stressed that he would not specifically talk about the attacker’s case, rather he highlighted the importance of coming to a decision that honoured the ‘values of the club’.

‘We need to look at facts, judge fairly and take into consideration what the values of the club are.’ Ratcliffe told the BBC. ‘Then we come out of that with a decision. It is not appropriate for me to comment on Mason Greenwood.’
