Manchester United-owned striker Mason Greenwood has emerged as a target for two La Liga clubs to sign him next summer.

Greenwood is currently on loan at La Liga side Getafe, where he has scored four goals and provided three assists in 11 appearances in all competitions.

He scored twice as Getafe thrashed Tardienta’s side 12-0 in the Copa del Rey last month, netting in the 15th and 55th minutes before being substituted in the 60th minute.

And he also scored during his side’s 2-1 win over Almeria at the weekend as Jose Bordalas’ side extended their unbeaten run to nine games.

The 21-year-old will leave Manchester United after the club made its decision to conduct an internal investigation into the player’s conduct.

Greenwood was suspended by United after he was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault in January 2022. He was subsequently charged with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning bodily harm.

The charges were dropped in February, with the CPS stating that “a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material coming to light meant that there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction”.

The Englishman remains under contract at Old Trafford until 2025, with United taking the decision to loan him to Getafe on transfer deadline day.

Coming off the bench for his new side during a 3-2 win over Osasuna in September, the 21-year-old made his first appearance since January 2022.

Now, a source has told The Sun that two La Liga clubs have identified Greenwood as a target for next summer.

The report claims that the clubs in question are Valencia and Real Sociedad, with both clubs allegedly sending scouts to watch the striker play.

Sociedad are currently top of their Champions League group having collected 10 points from four games so far in this season’s competition.

The same source added to The Sun that it is ‘highly unlikely’ Greenwood will return to United after his loan deal at Getafe expires.
