Mason Greenwood is set to make his return to football on September 17 – this coming Saturday afternoon – as Getafe clash with Osasuna in La Liga.
The ex-Manchester United striker has not kicked a football professionally since the Red Devils' match with West Ham back in January 2021. Greenwood was arrested on suspicion of attempted rape, assault and coercive control.
He was suspended by United, but those charges were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February this year.
Following an internal investigation, United eventually decided Greenwood would not play for the club again – and the Red Devils loaned the striker out to Getafe on Transfer Deadline Day.
