Mason Greenwood completes season-long loan move to Getafe after Jude Bellingham advice
Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has completed a season-long loan move to Getafe after being advised to move to Spain by teammate Jude Bellingham.
Greenwood had been told he would not play for Manchester United again following an inquiry into his off-field conduct, and was in need of a suitable environment for himself and his young family.
Getafe manager Jose Bordalas said he was convinced over a move to Spain by Bellingham, who made the move himself in June.
‘Mason Greenwood is friends with Jude Bellingham, and he advised him to come to La Liga,’ said Bordalas.
What will Mason Greenwood bring to Getafe?
Greenwood is a highly talented young forward who has already shown his potential at Manchester United. He has scored 17 goals in 79 appearances for the Red Devils, and has also earned four caps for England.
The 19-year-old is known for his pace and dribbling ability, and is capable of playing on either wing or through the middle. He is also a clinical finisher, and should provide Getafe with an extra attacking threat.
What does the move mean for Manchester United?
The move is a win-win situation for both clubs. Getafe get a talented young player who can help them push for a European place this season, while Manchester United get to keep paying the majority of Greenwood’s wages while he gets some much-needed game time.
It also gives Greenwood the chance to prove himself in a different environment, and if he can rediscover his best form then he could still have a future at Old Trafford.
What does the move mean for Jude Bellingham?
Bellingham has made a fast start to life in Spain, scoring two goals in his first four appearances for Borussia Dortmund. He has already become a key player for the German side, and his advice to Greenwood could be crucial in helping him settle in Spain.
Bellingham will be hoping that Greenwood can follow in his footsteps and make a successful transition to La Liga, and the two could be lining up against each other when Getafe take on Dortmund in the Champions League later this season.
