Footage of Mason Greenwood’s official unveiling at Getafe has surfaced following his move from Manchester United.
The 21-year-old joined the La Liga side on a season-long loan, receiving a warm welcome from the club’s fans.
“I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” he shared about his Getafe transfer in a social media post.
Greenwood has already trained with his new teammates in preparation for a potential debut after the international break.
He was introduced to the Getafe fans at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, where he signed autographs and kicked a ball into the crowd during the presentation stage.
A video of his unveiling captures the supporters chanting his name amid a pyrotechnic display. Check it out below:

Getafe’s decision to recruit Greenwood has been met with intense criticism.
The Ana Bella Foundation, a domestic abuse charity in Spain, have asked the club to overturn their decision.
Ana Bella Estevez, of the Ana Bella Foundation, said: “The club is setting a terrible example. Getafe executives should never have hired Mason Greenwood and should immediately overturn their decision.
“If you’re a public facing organisation like Getafe there is no excuse to take a neutral stance on violence against women – you must take moral responsibility.”
Greenwood hasn’t played a competitive game for Man United since the 2021/22 season. But he could return to action when Getafe resume their league campaign against Osasuna on September 17.
