Getafe president Angel Torres indicates that the Spanish club could re-sign Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood for the 2024-25 season.

Getafe president Angel Torres has hinted that Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood could return to the Spanish club next season.

Man United were reportedly set to reintegrate Greenwood into the first-team setup after all criminal charges were dropped against him last year.

However, the proposed plan was leaked and the public backlash resulted in a change of stance as Man United opted to send Greenwood on loan to Getafe.

That loan deal has now expired and Man United are now looking to offload Greenwood during the course of the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have supposedly set a €40m (£33.8m) asking price, with the attacker set to enter the final 12 months of his contract.

Torres discusses potential Greenwood return

The Man United man has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A amid interest from the likes of Juventus and Lazio.

A recent report has claimed that Lazio are keen to discuss a player-plus-cash deal which would see Christos Mandas move in the opposite direction.

The transfer saga has now produced a new twist after Getafe's president indicated that they could re-sign Greenwood for the 2024-25 season.

Speaking at Getafe's new kit launch, Torres: "We have 15 in the squad plus Greenwood, who we hope to give good news about soon and I hope will stay another year."

"As the press says, there are many offers and we will abide by what Man United say. It looks like he will continue for another year. Every day that passes there are more possibilities but you have to be cautious."

How likely is a Getafe return?

From Getafe's perspective, they will ultimately be keen to re-sign the 22-year-old after he enjoyed a productive campaign at the Coliseum.

Greenwood featured in 33 of Getafe's 38 La Liga matches, scoring eight goals and providing six assists to help his side finish in the comfort of 12th position.

Torres stated that Greenwood could "stay another year", suggesting that Jose Bordalas's side are looking to sign him on another loan deal.

However, it would be surprising to see Man United sanction another loan move rather than taking the opportunity to sell their academy product.

Obviously if Man United fail to find a buyer then another loan switch may become more attractive as the transfer window progresses.
