In a stunning turn of events on transfer deadline day, Mason Greenwood, the young talent from Manchester United, has made a surprising move to LaLiga side Getafe on a season-long loan,
Getafe supporters couldn't contain their excitement as they celebrated the loan signing of Mason Greenwood. A video surfaced of fans joyfully dancing outside their stadium on Friday night.
Greenwood's journey has been marred by controversy. After facing legal issues in early 2022, charges against him were later dropped. Manchester United conducted an internal investigation into his future, leading to this surprising loan move.
Initially, a move to Lazio seemed likely. However, negotiations with the Serie A club fell apart on transfer deadline day, with the club unable to complete the paperwork in time. Lazio's president, Claudio Lotito, expressed his efforts but couldn't make it happen.
With Lazio out of the picture, Getafe seized the opportunity and secured the deal just before the 11 p.m. deadline. Getafe hasn't paid a loan fee for Greenwood, but they will contribute to his weekly wages along with Manchester United, his parent club.
Getafe's X account shared footage of elated fans dancing outside the stadium, as well as President Angel Torres receiving applause. However, the controversial nature of Greenwood's transfer sparked mixed reactions, with some calling it "embarrassing" and a "disgrace."
