Wantaway Manchester United winger Mason Greenwood could reunite with former Man United teammate and club legend Cristiano Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia.

According to Marca, Saudi clubs have made a shock swoop for the footballing sensation following his impressive loan shift with Getafe.

Greenwood rolled back his 18-month exile due to rape and sexual assault charges to re-ignite his career.

The 22-year-old reached his highest goal contributions in his career at Getafe, recording 14 against the 11 he managed in the 2019/20 season with Manchester United, as per Opta Joe.

With spates of sparkling and brilliant individual performances, top LaLiga clubs have lined up for the services of the one-cap former England international.

Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are among the frontrunners in the race to sign Greenwood, as per reports from Spanish outlets.

Futballnews understands Getafe are also working around the clock to have United extend Greenwood’s loan agreement due to a lack of the financial power to sign the player on a permanent deal.

Now, according to Marca, Mason Greenwood could be wrested away from European clubs to Saudi Arabia where he could reunite with his ex-Man United teammate and club legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

The report adds that Saudi clubs are ready to heavily wade into the race to sign Greenwood this summer as he nears the final weeks of his loan deal with Getafe.

It is understood Manchester United want to sell Greenwood permanently. Sources close to the Old Trafford outfit reveal United want £52m for the player.

Due to financial constraints, Barcelona are less likely to pull up such a big money deal, including Atletico Madrid. The grueling financial status of the LaLiga clubs leaves Saudi interests on the advantage to broker a deal. However, Greenwood’s decision will play a big role on his next stop away from Getafe.
