still wants to play for again and is refusing to give up on a return when his loan at Getafe ends, according to reports.
Last month, the Red Devils announced they had come to a ‘mutual agreement’ with Greenwood that he would ‘recommence his career’ away from Old Trafford and .
The decision followed an enormous backlash to reports that United were willing to reintegrate the 21-year-old back into the first-team squad six months after charges against the player, including attempted rape and assault, were dropped.
Despite rumblings of interest from Saudi Arabia and Turkey, United were unable to find a buyer for Greenwood in the window and he moved to side Getafe on loan on deadline day.
According to , Greenwood – who still has a contract with United until 2025 – is hoping to use the loan to eventually force his way back into the fold at Old Trafford.
The striker is said to be ‘thrilled’ with his move to La Liga and wants to use it to show that he is still capable of playing at the top level and remains an asset to United.
Greenwood also wants to ‘repay the faith the club were willing to show in him’ before the backlash over his potential return.
United will continue to support the forward while he is in Spain, paying for a luxury £8,000-a-month villa and contributing more than half his wages.
Greenwood, who has not played for 18 months, was not in the Getafe squad that were beaten 2-1 by Real Madrid on Saturday and afterwards manager Jose Bordalas to sign the United academy product.
‘It is too delicate a situation to trivialise this issue,’ said Bordalas. ‘Everybody knows what happened, the appropriate measures were taken.
‘Obviously we can only talk about football, about other issues, I think, that the people and the relevant systems did what they had to do, and everybody knows how it ended – without a condemnatory sentence.
‘He’s a footballer of the highest level, who comes to Getafe with enormous hope. We are going to help him to recover his best level.’
Greenwood netted 10 Premier League goals in his first full season in the Premier League back in the 2019-20 campaign and followed that up with seven goals in the subsequent season, while he had netted five times in 18 league outings prior to being suspended.
