Audacious Mason Greenwood swap deal could net United exciting Brazilian forward – report

Manchester United’s backline has found itself under the spotlight all season, and the 4-0 hammering at the hands of Crystal Palace last weekend further attracted criticism from all corners.

However, Man United’s defenders are not the only reason why their goal difference is negative three 35 Premier League games into the season.

The Red Devils have been equally underwhelming going forward, managing fewer league goals than West Ham and Brighton and Hove Albion.

Signing a new goal-scorer this summer is going to be as crucial as addressing the side’s frustrating defence. In that regard, Barcelona may end up providing United with a great opportunity.

Mason Greenwood has enjoyed a prolific loan stint at Getafe. With eight goals and six assists in 29 La Liga appearances, he has been directly involved in more league goals than any United forward this term.

According to HITC, he is tied to his parent club until 2026 after they decided to trigger the 12-month extension clause in his contract.

However, considering the circumstances that led to his exit, it is highly unlikely Greenwood will be allowed to return to United’s first-team to strengthen their attack. Instead United may get their hands on another goal-scorer – Vitor Roque – because of Greenwood.

The outlet goes on to claim that Barcelona are among a number of European giants monitoring the Englishman’s exploits in Spain.

The Catalan outfit are very keen on Greenwood and it is claimed they would be willing to offer United players to secure the services of their academy product.
