FOOTAGE shows Mason Greenwood beaming as the ex Manchester United star signs autographs for young fans – hours before his official launch with Getafe.

Greenwood can be seen posing for snaps with kids and signing their shirts and footballs in a clip which the club posted on Twitter.

One fan had already got his hands on a replica of Greenwood's number 12 shirt, which he wore back-to-front as he hugged the striker.

Greenwood will be officially presented to fans along with Getafe's other summer signings at the Coliseum stadium in Madrid at 7pm local time tonight.

Earlier today Greenwood trained for the first time with his new club Getafe – more than 18 months since his last game for Manchester United.

The striker was pictured training with his Getafe teammates as he gets ready for his expected debut with the La Liga side later this month.

Greenwood breaks his silence as he’s pictured with Getafe shirt for first time

Greenwood was recently seen training alone in a park with his dad – but this is the first time he has taken part in full team training for well over a year.

It is highly unlikely that Greenwood is match fit – and the snaps of him training suggest he is focusing on strength and conditioning.

Getafe also posted a clip of fans giving Greenwood an ecstatic welcome to the training ground near Madrid.

It was captioned: "We love you Mason Greenwood".

Greenwood yesterday broke his silence after being pictured holding his Getafe shirt for the first time since his Manchester United exit.

The striker, 21, has been provided with a pathway back to football by the La Liga side.

In a message to fans, he said: "Hi Getafe fans, it's Mason here.

"I'm so happy to be here and I can't wait to get started."

Getafe also posted a snap on Twitter of Greenwood holding up the club's blue home strip.

It was captioned "Mason Greenwood ya esta aqui" – which means "Mason Greenwood is here".


The Spanish club announced the deal just minutes before the summer transfer window deadline arrived on Friday.

United will receive no loan fee and will cover the majority of his £75,000-a-week wage during his time in Spain.

A club statement added: "The move enables Greenwood to begin to rebuild his career away from Manchester United.

"The club will continue to offer its support to Mason and his family during this period of transition."

Greenwood may not make his debut until September 17, when Getafe host Osasuna.

It comes after United announced that Greenwood had "mutually agreed" to leave the club following an internal probe into his arrest.

He was arrested in October last year but all charges were dropped in February by the Crown Prosecution Service.

Greenwood still has two years left to run with the option of a further 12 months had the club wanted to take it up.
