Mason Greenwood named in squad for Getafe for first time since deadline day loan transfer from Man Utd | The Sun
MASON GREENWOOD could make his Getafe debut tomorrow after being named in the club's matchday squad.
The Manchester United forward, 21, joined the Spanish club on loan on deadline day in the summer transfer window.
He was not involved in the 2-1 defeat at Real Madrid on September 2 as Jude Bellingham scored a dramatic injury-time winner.
But Getafe confirmed the striker – who will wear No12 – is on the squad list to face Osasuna in LaLiga tomorrow.
And therefore Greenwood could make his first appearance since January 2022 when he was suspended by United.
Getafe, managed by Jose Bordalas, sit 14th in LaLiga with one win from their opening four matches.

However, they did hold Barcelona to a 0-0 draw on the opening weekend of the season.
Greenwood was suspended by Manchester United after he was arrested in 2022.
He was then charged with a string of offences including attempted rape.
However, the CPS then dropped the charges in February this year.

United, though, confirmed on August 21 that Greenwood would not be returning into the first-team fold under Erik ten Hag after their own internal probe and a furious fan reaction led by Rachel Riley.
However, the club did not terminate his £75,000-per-week contract at Old Trafford.
Greenwood released a statement where he insisted he had not done what he was accused of but was "learning to understand my responsibilities as a professional footballer".
There was interest from Lazio and Turkey but a deal was signed with Getafe just moments before the window closed.
The one-cap England international was unveiled in front of supporters in Madrid.
He has been joined in the Spanish capital by girlfriend Harriet Robson, who has a baby with the footballer.
And Greenwood will be reinstated into EA Sports' new EA FC 24 video game after being dropped from FIFA 22 following his arrest.
A statement from EA Sports said: “EA Sports FC 24 authentically reflects the active rosters of teams and clubs in the real world of football.

“As he is now part of an active roster with Getafe CF, Mason Greenwood will be included in FC 24.”
The 21-year-old though will not appear in the popular Ultimate Team mode as he wasn’t part of an active squad at the time of the cut-off date by EA.
