  • Mason Greenwood scored another spectacular goal for Getafe in La Liga on January 29
  • The 22-year-old has rediscovered his form since moving to Spain on loan last year
  • This comes at a time when his parent club are having problems with Marcus Rashford

Mason Greenwood continued with his impressive run of form in Spain by scoring a ridiculous goal on January 29.

The Getafe forward chipped the ball over the goalkeeper from 18 yards out to help his side to a 2-0 lead against Granada in a Liga match.

The goal was Greenwood's fourth in Spain's top division as Getafe moved to 29 points in 10th place. The Manchester United loanee received a pass from Juan Iglesias before chipping it past the goalkeeper.

Borja Mayoral added the second one to snap up their winless streak of three games in La Liga.

Here is that Mason Greenwood goal

The 22-year-old has enjoyed consistent game time in Spain after not playing competitive football for over a year following his court case in England. After the charges were dropped, United resolved to send him out on loan, with the player still contracted to the club until 2025.

He was recently linked with a sensational move to Barcelona. Marca reported that the father of one has told his advisors a move to the defending champions would 'be a dream.'

Greenwood back at United?

The reports come when a section of Manchester United fans continue to call for his reinstatement in Erik ten Hag's camp. The Dutch tactician was forced to deal with another indiscipline issue after Marcus Rashford skipped training last week, citing illness, only for videos of him at a nightclub to surface online.

The issue has since been dealt with internally, with Rashford available for selection. The club is also expected to sell Jadon Sancho once his short-term loan at Borussia Dortmund is over.

Rashford to miss two weeks' wages

Sports Brief has reported that Rashford will be fined two weeks wages for missing training last week. The 26-year-old was spotted in two nightclubs in Belfast, Northern Ireland, a few hours before missing training.

He was dropped from the squad that beat Newport County in the FA Cup. His punishment is the biggest a club can hand to a player.
