Barcelona Baulks at United's Greenwood Valuation Amid Transfer Buzz

Barcelona Baulks at United's Greenwood Valuation Amid Transfer Buzz

In the latest transfer market developments, Barcelona has reportedly balked at Manchester United's valuation of forward Mason Greenwood. The English club has placed a price tag of between €40 million and €60 million on the 22-year-old, who is currently on loan at Getafe.

Greenwood, who has not played for Manchester United since January 2022 following his arrest on serious charges, had all allegations dropped last February. Despite this, United faced significant backlash over the prospect of reintegrating him into the squad, leading to his loan out to Getafe.

During his time in La Liga, Greenwood has shown promising form, scoring six goals for the Spanish side. This performance has kept him on Barcelona's radar, but the Catalan giants have made it clear that United's asking price exceeds their budget.

The negotiations came to light following a meeting between United's football director, John Murtough, head of football negotiations, Matt Hargreaves, and Barcelona's sporting director, Deco, along with agents Frank Tramboli and Fede Massai.

While United's new co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has left the door open for Greenwood's return, stating that a decision will be made considering the club's values, Barcelona's stance puts United in a position to reconsider their valuation or explore other potential suitors for Greenwood.

As the transfer saga unfolds, it remains to be seen whether Barcelona's interest will lead to a negotiation or if Greenwood's future lies elsewhere.
