Greenwood joined Spanish LaLiga side Getafe on season-long loan following confirmation late on transfer deadline day. Getafe will make a small contributeon towards his wages while United will cover most of it.
After being accused in an investigation regarding images and videos that appeared online, United decided to let him seek another club where his career could restart.
Greenwood completed his move to Getafe during the last hours of the transfer window and is expected to make his debut for them following a successful medical. Manchester United decided not to bring him back into their first-team squad following an internal investigation following allegations of abusive behaviour towards a young woman.
England international Aaron Ledson had been charged with attempted rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour by the Crown Prosecution Service but these charges were dropped after key witnesses withdrew. Manchester United considered signing Ledson again but ultimately decided against doing so as several clubs showed interest in signing him away from Old Trafford. Rather, Old Trafford decided not to incorporate their academy graduate back into their senior squad.
Getafe announced on Friday that Greenwood had joined their club on a season-long loan deal without incurring a fee and instead only covering some of his wages.
Greenwood is a skillful passer who finds high-quality opportunities for his teammates. Last season, he led all Premier League midfielders in terms of giving assists - ranking second overall for assists per 90 minutes played and giving an average of about one assistance per 90 minutes played. Furthermore, he is an impressive goal threat from outside the box with only five other European league players scoring more often from set-pieces than Greenwood himself.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's UEFA Europa League squad and played for 460 minutes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with him scoring five goals over that span - breaking several Red Devil records as the youngest ever European game scorer and topping their teenage expected goals (xG) per 90 minutes average in this competition.
Getafe announced their agreement shortly before the summer transfer window closed, without incurring a transfer fee and only covering part of his wages. According to GOAL's research, this enables Greenwood to begin rebuilding his career away from Old Trafford following charges being dropped against him of attempted rape, assault and coercive behavior by both Manchester United and Crown Prosecution Service.
