Mason Greenwood wants to play for England again as a European giant wants to sign him, according to a report.
Greenwood left Manchester United last summer to join Getafe on loan for the 2023/24 season.
He had been attracting interest from clubs in the Premier League, Germany and Italy before signing a deal with the La Liga side.
This season, the 22-year-old has scored five goals in 19 games in all competitions, impressing the likes of Antoine Griezmann, who spoke out following the player’s showing against Atletico Madrid.
According to The Sun‘s source, Barcelona want to sign Greenwood at the end of the season.
The source also claims that the one-capped England forward hopes to represent The Three Lions again.
“Barcelona want to sign Greenwood, and he wants to move there. The next step is for the clubs to come to an agreement,” claimed the source.
“Manchester United want to sell the player and the manager has accepted Greenwood won’t be returning. The view is that it is best for all parties to have a clean break. As talented as Greenwood is, a return to the club when they are at the start of a new chapter, with new owners, is regarded as a backward step.
“A deal with Barcelona is likely to include a number of add-ons depending on games Mason goes on to play for them and possibly for England too.”
The source added: “Mason is setting his sights on playing for his country again one day.
“Time will tell on that, but for the moment Mason is focused on further making a name for himself in La Liga. He hit the ground running at Getafe and played well which is why Barcelona want him.
“They think he is a player who can help take them to the next level both in the domestic competitions and in Europe and is one for the future. They think Greenwood would also be an exciting signing for the fans. They’ve sent scouts to watch him six times this season and the reports have been overwhelmingly positive.”
Greenwood has been capped once at international level, earning his one and only appearance back in September 2020.
He was a second-half substitute in England’s 1-0 win over Iceland.
But he was then dropped from the squad after breaking COVID-19 quarantine guidelines.
Greenwood has not played for England since, but he hopes to break into the International again one day.
