The striker left Manchester United on loan on transfer deadline day

Mason Greenwood seemed sharp in Getafe training following his loan move from Manchester United.

The 21-year-old has moved to the La Liga side after the Red Devils opted against bringing him back into the fold.

Greenwood fever has taken over Getafe in the short time since, with many supporters delighted at his arrival.

A video uploaded by the Spanish team shows the forward looking sharp in training with his new team-mates.

Greenwood performed a flick and was able to keep and pass the ball, with one coach applauding his efforts.

The United striker appears far skinnier than 18 months ago, when he last played a professional match of football.

Yet Getafe will be hoping the youngster can take La Liga by storm and fire them up the table after a slow start so far.

They did a tweet saying 'our guy Mase' with a fan asking the England international for his shirt.

Another message read 'we love you' and showed Greenwood high-fiving a supporter in the stands.

And a third post showed a fan with a 'Greenwood 12' Getafe shirt outside their stadium.

It is currently unclear if the 21-year-old will make his debut for Getafe against Osasuna on Sunday (1pm).

But it'll certainly be interesting to see how his loan spell in Spain turns out.

United had originally intended to bring Greenwood back after charges of attempted rape and assault were dropped in February.

Following a backlash, however, they then revealed the forward would 'resume his career away from Old Trafford'.

New Getafe boss Jose Bordalas, meanwhile, was asked about his side's decision to recruit Greenwood over the weekend.

And the 59-year-old responded by saying: "It is a very delicate situation to trivialise this issue.

"Every[one] knows what happened and the appropriate measures were taken, obviously, we can only talk about football.

"Regarding the other issues, I believe that the people and the relevant authorities did what they had to do and everyone knows how it ended with a non-conviction sentence.

"Therefore, he is a free person, a footballer of a very high level and who arrives at Getafe with enormous enthusiasm and that we are obviously going to help him so that he recovers back to his best level.

"I have already commented what I had to comment. I can only speak on a football level.

"We all know the potential he has. He is a very young boy, he is still 21 years old and we can help him adapt to a situation.

"It’s a different league but because of the potential he has, I’m sure that if he physically reaches a good level, I’m convinced of him because of how young he is and because we’ve been informed that he obviously wants to recover his professional status and Getafe can help him in that."

As for Greenwood, the striker appeared in a video on Getafe's social media accounts.

And he made it clear how excited he was to begin his new adventure.


"Hi Getafe fans, it's Mason here. I'm so happy to be here and I can't wait to get started," he said.
