Barcelona open to offering Vitor Roque in Mason Greenwood deal

Barcelona will reportedly be open to including Vitor Roque in a swap deal to sign Mason Greenwood from Manchester United.

According to a report by HITC, Mason Greenwood is the subject of interest from Manchester United. And the Catalan giants are open to offering Vitor Roque in a swap deal to sign the 22-year-old prospect. However, the Red Devils want a straight sale instead of accepting any players in an exchange arrangement.

Mason Greenwood and his declining status at Manchester United

Mason Greenwood has been ‘persona non grata’ at Manchester United since his off-field controversy broke out a few years ago. Once the boy prodigy for the Premier League giants, he was supposed to be the latest superstar at Old Trafford. However, the youngster’s actions have sealed his fate at Manchester United.

The Red Devils briefly contemplated re-integrating Greenwood into the first-team squad ahead of the 2023/24 season. However, fan backlash ended any hopes of that happening, with the Red Devils eventually loaning him to Getafe. And the 22-year-old has taken to La Liga like a fish to water.

The controversial prospect has contributed to 16 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions thus far this season, finding the back of the net ten times while providing six assists. Meanwhile, Greenwood’s progress at Getafe has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs, including Barcelona.

What next?

Barcelona’s interest in Mason Greenwood is understandable. The Catalan giants are scouring the market for an offensive reinforcement ahead of the summer transfer window. The Blaugrana might part ways with Raphinha and Ferran Torres to fund moves for summer signings. And the Manchester United prospect has emerged as a target for Barcelona.

Manchester United will unlikely stand in Barcelona or Greenwood’s way, considering they want to complete a permanent sale. However, there is a twist in the tale, with Barcelona looking to offer Vitor Roque in the deal to secure Mason Greenwood’s services in the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old wonderkid features on Manchester United’s radar ahead of the summer. So, it is surprising that the Red Devils do not want to accept Vitor Roque in a swap deal involving Greenwood. Instead, they want a straight sale for the controversial 22-year-old prospect.
