Paul Mitchell, a potential candidate for the role of Manchester United’s future sporting director, was observed closely while attending Getafe’s match, where Mason Greenwood showcased his skills. Greenwood, currently on loan at Getafe, played a pivotal role in his team’s La Liga victory over Cadiz on Monday, catching Mitchell’s attention, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.
During the match, Greenwood contributed significantly, playing for 86 minutes and assisting Borja Mayoral in securing the winning goal. In the current La Liga season, the 22-year-old forward has made eight appearances, scoring once and providing two assists. His standout performance includes a remarkable brace in Getafe’s 12-0 triumph over Tardienta in the Copa del Rey.
Despite Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold expressing doubt about Greenwood’s return to the club, significant changes are anticipated with Sir Jim Ratcliffe acquiring a 25 percent stake. Talks of Mitchell potentially taking on the role of sporting director are reportedly advancing, with Arnold and director of football John Murtough possibly departing the club.
Ratcliffe aims to revamp the club’s transfer strategy and is looking to offload players like Jadon Sancho, Antony, and Anthony Martial in the upcoming January transfer window. Meanwhile, Greenwood appears to be enjoying his time in Spain and expresses a desire to continue his career in La Liga. Several Spanish clubs, including Sevilla, have already been linked with a potential move for the talented youngster.
