Barcelona ready to offer one player to Manchester United in swap deal for Mason Greenwood

Barcelona ready to offer one player to Manchester United in swap deal for Mason Greenwood

Manchester United are expected to have a busy summer.

Barcelona are reported to have offered Manchester United a swap deal as they attempt to lure Mason Greenwood to the Nou Camp.

The 21-year-old has continued to shine for Getafe on loan in La Liga this season and it is thought the Red Devils are willing to listen to offers for him.

Having scored 10 goals and registered 6 assists in Spain so far during his loan spell, Atletico Madrid are another club who are said to be interested in the forward.

According to HITC, it is Brazilian Vitor Roque who the Catalan giants have offered to Manchester United in a straight-swap deal.

The 19-year-old is tied down to a long-term contract with Barcelona but has struggled to make a breakthrough so far since his move from Athletico Paranaense.

Greenwood still remains a Manchester United player until 2025 and it still remains to be seen whether his parent club wish to keep him.

Getafe themselves would like to extend the loan deal for the forward but with a hefty £40million price tag on his head, a permanent transfer is looking unlikely at this stage.

“If it was up to the lad, his parents and the club [Getafe], I think he would continue for another year,” Getafe president Angel Torres recently told Radio Marca.

“But regarding Manchester [United], the news that we have from last week where the [Getafe] sporting director went to England to see some games and was with them, is that if a good offer comes along, they would want to sell because he is not going to go back there [to Manchester].

Manchester United’s new minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is another who has remained coy on the situation, adding how he will assess the situation surrounding Greenwood in the summer.

“It’s quite clear we have to make a decision,” he said earlier this year.

“The process will be to understand the facts, not the hype, and then try to come to a fair decision based on values — is he a good guy or not and answer whether could he play sincerely for Manchester United well and would we be comfortable with it and would the fans be comfortable with it?”
