Prior to joining La Liga, the 21-year-old was linked with a move to Italian club Lazio. Claudio Lotito, the president of the Italian club, has now disclosed that Lazio was very interested in signing the 21-year-old attacker, and the player wanted to join them as well.
However, he has now blamed Manchester United for failing to sign the papers in time for the transfer to be completed.
Greenwood hasn’t played for Manchester United since December 2021, when he was arrested for a variety of offenses.
The player was recently exonerated of all accusations, but the Premier League club conducted their own investigation and determined that the striker has no future at Old Trafford.
Greenwood is on loan at Getafe this season, but he will depart the club permanently next summer.
The 21-year-old was regarded as one of the finest young talents to have emerged from the Manchester United Academy in recent years, and it will be interesting to see if he can relaunch his career and realize his enormous potential in the future seasons.
Greenwood requires consistent game time to regain his shape and sharpness. It remains to be seen whether Getafe is willing to provide him with the opportunity he requires. If he performs well in La Liga this season, he may be able to secure a permanent move to Getafe in the summer.
