Mason Greenwood offered Lionel Messi’s iconic shirt number at Barcelona

Mason Greenwood's rise in La Liga and Barcelona's interest, featuring the iconic number 10 shirt offer and his post-Manchester United journey

In a move that’s stirring up the football world, Mason Greenwood, currently on loan at Getafe from Manchester United, has reportedly been offered Lionel Messi’s legendary number 10 shirt at Barcelona.

This development comes amid Greenwood’s impressive performance in La Liga, where he has played a key role in Getafe’s rise to eighth place. His statistics are notable, with five goals and four assists to his name since his summer move.

Barcelona’s interest in Greenwood isn’t just a rumor. The Sun reports that they are prepared to table a £40 million bid for the 22-year-old forward. Barcelona has kept a close eye on Greenwood, with scouts attending Getafe’s matches against Sevilla, Valencia, and Atletico Madrid. Adding to the allure, Barcelona is rumored to offer Greenwood the iconic number 10 shirt, a number that carries immense significance at the club.

The number 10 shirt at Barcelona is synonymous with Lionel Messi, the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner. Messi’s departure in August 2021 left a void, with the shirt briefly passing to Ansu Fati before his loan move to Brighton & Hove Albion. Now, this prestigious number could be Greenwood’s if he decides to make the switch to the Nou Camp.

Greenwood’s potential move comes after a turbulent period at Manchester United. In February, charges of attempted rape, coercive behaviour, and assault against him were dropped due to the withdrawal of a key witness and new evidence.

United’s internal investigation concluded with a mutual decision for Greenwood to continue his career away from Old Trafford. United acknowledged that Greenwood did not commit the offences he was originally charged with.

The offer from Barcelona represents not just a career opportunity for Greenwood but also a chance to step into a legacy left by one of football’s greatest players. As the football world watches, Greenwood’s decision could mark a significant chapter in both his career and Barcelona’s history.
