Barcelona’s serious interest in Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood is intensifying, with the club having scouts present at his last three matches.

Reports from within the club indicate that Greenwood’s style is a perfect fit for Barcelona’s dynamic play.

The Spanish giant’s pursuit is gaining momentum, with Greenwood seen as an ideal addition to their attacking line-up.

A source told The Sun: “Barcelona are hugely interested in Greenwood, and are determined to bring him in.

“Right now, they are leading the race and are at the front of the queue. Scouts have watched Greenwood and have been tasked with deciding if he fits in with Barcelona’s style of play.

“The overwhelming view is that he does, and that he would be a strong addition to the squad.”

The potential move marks a significant shift for Greenwood, who’s been informed he no longer has a future at Manchester United.

Having adapted well to life in Spain, Greenwood is open to the prospect of continuing his career there.

Barcelona’s keen interest, along with attention from Valencia and Real Sociedad, signals that Greenwood’s impressive performance at Getafe hasn’t gone unnoticed.

With a likely departure from Manchester United on the horizon, Greenwood’s resurgence in Spain positions him for a potentially transformative career move.

The Sun’s source continued: “Mason has done brilliantly since he moved to Spain and is really catching the eye after a strong start to his time at Getafe.

“There are a number of clubs looking at him in Spain with scouts from Valencia and Sociedad seemingly at the front of the queue.

“It is highly unlikely Mason will return to Manchester United. That ship has sailed, and he looks set to enjoy the next phase of his career in Spain where he has really settled and found his feet both personally and professionally.

“He owes a huge debt to Getafe for the help and support they have given him, and it’s possible he could make his move there permanent at the end of the season.

“But if he carries on playing like he is, other bids and offers are likely to come in, leaving Mason, and the club, with a decision to make. After a very difficult year or so Mason feels like his career is on the up. “Erik Ten Hag was always keen to keep Mason but that decision, in the end, was taken out of his hands. He’s now planning for the long term and Mason isn’t part of those plans.”
