Atletico Madrid ready to swap Joao Felix for Mason Greenwood

Real Madrid revive transfer interest in forgotten Manchester United man

Atletico Madrid are reportedly willing to offer unwanted star Joao Félix to Man United this summer as part of a swap deal for controversial footballer Mason Greenwood.

“Greenwood is attracting interest from Italy, England, Germany, Spain… it’s really open. For sure, Manchester United want to sell him on a permanent transfer so I think it will be difficult for Getafe to make it happen to keep the player.”

United sent the Englishman on loan to La Liga outfit Getafe for the 2023/24 season, where the winger was awarded the club’s Player of the Season. Greenwood impressed across the 36 matches he featured in, scoring 10 goals and providing a further six assists.

This is a big reason why Atletico Madrid want to sign Greenwood this summer and it remains to be seen if Man United would entertain a swap deal containing…
