As reported by the Mirror, Sevilla is actively preparing for a potential move to sign Mason Greenwood, whose contract with Manchester United runs until the summer of 2025.

Remarkably, Manchester United continues to cover the majority of his weekly wage, which amounts to £75,000.

Sevilla, the reigning champions of the Europa League, securing a coveted spot in this season’s Champions League, seems dedicated to strengthening their squad further through this potential acquisition.

In recent developments, 22-year-old Mason Greenwood made a significant move to LaLiga after Manchester United executives concluded that his career at Old Trafford couldn’t continue due to an investigation into his off-field behavior.

Initially, there were indications of the former England international rejoining United.

However, a dramatic reversal in the club’s decision transpired following strong objections from fans, as exclusively reported by SunSport.

Greenwood faced legal challenges in January of the preceding year, involving charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control.

However, in February, all charges against him were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service. A spokesperson stated at that time, “We have a duty to keep cases under continuous review.”

“In this case a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light meant there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.”

“In these circumstances, we are under a duty to stop the case. We have explained our decision to all parties.”

“We would always encourage any potential victims to come forward and report to police and we will prosecute wherever our legal test is met.”

According to a source cited by SunSport, Greenwood is expressing a desire to remain with Getafe for the foreseeable future.

The source stated, “The players and fans at Getafe have embraced him in a way he had never anticipated.”

“He really feared his career was over. Now he’s just so happy and  wants to carry on playing and not think too far ahead.”
