The 21-year-old striker was allowed to leave Old Trafford at the end of the summer transfer window. After a lengthy internal investigation, the Red Devils Board of Directors decided that Greenwood has no immediate future in Manchester.
Greenwood was linked with clubs in Italy, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, but ultimately agreed to a season-long move to Getafe.
England international Bellingham was present in La Liga at that time, after completing a transfer worth 103 million euros to the home team Santiago Bernabeu. The Real rookie then suggested that Greenwood should follow the same path.
On Radio Marca, coach Bordales revealed: “Greenwood is a friend of Bellingham and he advised Greenwood to go to the Spanish National League”.
Greenwood has not played for United since January 2022, after being arrested on suspicion of attempted rape, assault and coercive control. Those charges were dropped in February 2023, allowing the striker to continue his playing career.
Bordales added about successfully asking to borrow the player who scored 22 goals in the Premier League: “It was surprising, we never thought we could get such a quality player.
“But they contacted our sporting director (Ruben Reyes), we talked, we didn’t think it could happen but both sides made efforts [về mặt tài chính].”
