Barcelona consider Mason Greenwood a low-cost option to reinforce the attack.

Mason Greenwood is on FC Barcelona’s list of potential signings. According to Toni Juanmarti of SPORT, the Manchester United forward, currently on loan at Getafe, is highly regarded by the Catalan club as a ‘low-cost’ option to bolster their attack next season. Barcelona has made initial moves to approach Greenwood, but without making any commitments, as the extent of their financial fair play capabilities for the summer remains uncertain.

At just 22 years old, Greenwood has been impressive at Getafe under José Bordalás, scoring eight goals and providing five assists in 26 appearances. His performance has attracted Barcelona’s attention, who see him as a valuable addition to their forward line without requiring significant financial investment. Barcelona’s preference would be to reinforce the left flank of their attack, although Greenwood’s versatility allows him to play on the right or as a striker.

With Greenwood’s contract with Manchester United expiring in 2025 and limited chances of a return to his current club, he is likely to choose a new destination this summer, with Getafe entitled to a share of any potential transfer fee.

Additionally, Manchester United is closely monitoring Barcelona’s youth academy, potentially opening the door for player exchanges to facilitate Greenwood’s transfer. Barcelona is awaiting further clarity on its financial situation in the coming weeks before making concrete decisions in the transfer market.
