Atletico Madrid Pursuing Mason Greenwood Despite Potential Fan Backlash

Atletico Madrid remains undeterred in their pursuit of Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, despite potential backlash from fans, according to recent reports. While Barcelona had also expressed interest in signing the winger, they have now withdrawn from the race, leaving Atletico with a clear path to pursue the English talent.

Diego Simeone’s side recognizes the possibility of facing criticism from supporters for signing Greenwood, especially in light of recent controversies. However, they are confident in the player’s abilities and believe that his addition will benefit the club in the long term, as reported by The Times.

The bigger picture suggests that while Greenwood’s return to Manchester United is not completely ruled out, a permanent departure is deemed the most likely outcome. The Red Devils are anticipated to demand a fee of around £40 million ($51 million) for the 22-year-old, whose contract with the club runs until 2025.

Despite the potential for backlash, Atletico sees Greenwood as a valuable addition to their squad. The winger has showcased his talent in La Liga with Getafe, contributing eight goals and five assists for the Madrid-based club this season.
