And they now hope to tie up a deal soon to make him a Barcelona player in June.

Greenwood, 22, who is currently starring for Getafe on loan, has told his advisors Barcelona is a “dream move”.

Our source said: “Barcelona want to sign Greenwood, and he wants to move there. The next step is for the clubs to come to an agreement.

“Manchester United want to sell the player and the manager has accepted Greenwood won’t be returning. The view is that it is best for all parties to have a clean break. As talented as Greenwood is, a return to the club when they are at the start of a new chapter, with new owners, is regarded as a backward step.


“A deal with Barcelona is likely to include a number of add-ons depending on games Mason goes on to play for them and possibly for England too.

“Mason is setting his sights on playing for his country again one day.

“Time will tell on that, but for the moment Mason is focused on further making a name for himself in La Liga. He hit the ground running at Getafe and played well which is why Barcelona want him.

“They think he is a player who can help take them to the next level both in the domestic competitions and in Europe and is one for the future. They think Greenwood would also be an exciting signing for the fans. They’ve sent scouts to watch him six times this season and the reports have been overwhelmingly positive.”


Earlier this year, SunSport revealed Greenwood was set to find himself at the centre of Spanish summer transfer flurry.

The striker was loaned by United to Getafe at the start of this season – and has been in impressive form with three goals and four assists in 16 LaLiga games.

SunSport understands Valencia and Real Sociedad are both “monitoring” the England star – but Barcelona have now moved into pole position.

Our source added: “Ten Hag was always keen to keep Mason but that decision, in the end, was taken out of his hands. He’s now planning for the long term and Mason isn’t part of those plans.”

Greenwood has made an impact at Getafe, making 16 appearances in LaLiga.

He’s bagged three goals and four assists in that time.

Speaking last month, his current manager Jose Bordalas said: “Greenwood is a different player, with a lot of talent but in this football talent is not the main thing. It takes more work than talent.

“We were confident because of the talent, because of the level he has had.

“Being able to opt for a player of this level at Getafe is complicated, almost impossible. And well, given the situation, we bet on him.

“We are happy and content because we have a great player, he is a good boy, he has fitted in really well and he just needs to learn a little more Spanish.”
