Young English striker Mason Greenwood has been the center of attention in the transfer market following his surprise loan move to Getafe in the last transfer window. Now Real Sociedad is the main candidate to secure his services permanently.
Greenwood, 22, had an outstanding season in La Liga, scoring two goals and three assists in 11 games. Furthermore, he made a strong impression by scoring two goals in his Copa del Rey debut against Tardienta. These performances have revived interest from several clubs, but Real Sociedad appear to be leading the race for his permanent signing.
Despite rumors of a possible return to Manchester United, Greenwood’s future remains uncertain. Transfer experts such as Fabrizio Romano suspect that minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe is discussing his future and a decision could be made at the end of the season.
The player has adapted well to life in Spain with his family and his performance at Getafe has attracted interest from several La Liga clubs, including Valencia. However, according to sources, Real Sociedad are at the top of the possible targets.

Notably, Greenwood’s journey has not been without controversy, as he faced serious allegations early last year. Fortunately, all charges against him have been dropped and he is focusing on his football career. Greenwood’s last appearance for Manchester United was in January 2022 and no one at the English club wants him back, so they are keeping an eye on his performance so they can sell him for a good price.
