Manchester United have sent Mason Greenwood to Spain in a bid to help him restart his career after charges of attempted rape, coercive control and assault were dropped six months ago.
Greenwood has spent two weeks settling into life at his new club. The past two weeks can be said to be a dream time for the English striker, thereby helping number 12 leave behind the bad events of the past few years.
Greenwood was said to be surprised that he was well received in Spain. That warm welcome once came to the English player when he debuted at his new club. The fans chanted his name and wore ‘Greenwood 12’ jerseys.
Many sources confirm that the player born in 2001 was enthusiastically welcomed by Getafe. The board of directors, coaching staff and teammates were completely unconcerned about the previous scandal of the foggy talent. Most importantly, Greenwood has reunited with his girlfriend and the two also have their first child.
A source close to the Daily Mail said:
“For Mason and his family, this is a new life. For a long time, his life in Manchester was limited to his home. In Spain, Mason can go to the supermarket or restaurant and if people recognize him, they will have sympathy for him.”
“The fear Mason had in England is gone. It’s still early days but he can’t believe it’s going so well.”
The Foggy striker had dinner with Getafe president Angel Torres in Spain. In addition, Man Utd is said to be looking for a series of benefits to ensure Greenwood settles into his new life.
GOAL reported that the Red Devils are paying for Greenwood’s accommodation. The Premier League club is also paying an interpreter to work 24/7 to help Greenwood and his family easily integrate into the new land.
Besides paying more than half of Greenwood’s salary during his time in Madrid, Man Utd were given £8,000 a month for a six-bedroom villa. According to The Sun, this residence is located near Getafe’s training ground. Greenwood’s father Andrew also traveled to Spain to ensure his son had strong support behind him.
Record shirt sales
Greenwood broke the shirt sales record before launching his new club. Not only did 4,000 people attend Greenwood’s debut, but he was also a ‘magnet’ that pulled fans for the club.
In Spain, the rookie’s ‘Greenwood 12’ jerseys were sold incredibly quickly in the first week. In the club’s history, no player has been able to sell as many jerseys as the star born in 2001 after the first week.
