Mason Greenwood has emerged as one of the success stories in La Liga this season. After 16 months without any footballing action, the attacker joined Getafe on a loan deal this past summer.

As we approach the halfway point of the season, the loan move has played out very well, with Greenwood emerging as a key attacking outlet for Getafe.

Real Madrid keeping close tabs on Greenwood

In just 13 competitive matches this season, Greenwood has racked up four goals and three assists. He is slowly settling into life at Getafe, with a fresh report from 90 Min (h/t Express), claiming that the forward is happy in Spain.

More importantly, though, the report suggests that Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on Greenwood’s progress.

It appears the Spanish giants are exploring the possibility of going after the Englishman, who was once regarded as one of the most promising talents in the Premier League.

Real Madrid, though, are not alone in the race to sign Greenwood. The Manchester United star is also courted by Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. Even Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on the attacker.

Manchester United open to sale

Despite Greenwood’s steady redemption at Getafe, Manchester United have made their mind up about the Englishman.

The Premier League giants will look to cash in on the player before his contract at Old Trafford expires in 2025.

Given the way Greenwood has performed at Getafe, it could be likely that he will prolong his stay in La Liga, especially with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atleti interested in his services.

However, Greenwood’s controversial past will remain an issue, at least as far as the fans are concerned, which in turn, should raise question marks on whether or not Real Madrid should go after the star.

As Real Madrid gear up to face Borussia Dortmund in the finals of the UEFA Champions League this weekend, a number of their players interacted with the press today as part of the UEFA Open Media Day.

Jude Bellingham was one of the stars who answered questions from the media ahead of what will be an emotional game for him against his former club, in his homeland.

The England international has enjoyed a spectacular debut season at Real Madrid and is seen as a strong contender for the Ballon d’Or this season.

However, when asked about the Golden Orb, Bellingham tipped his Madrid teammate Vinicius Jr. as his pick to win the prestigious honour this year.

“For me, Vinicius is the best in the world. He creates magic out of nothing. He has everything to be the best,” said Bellingham, as quoted by The Athletic’s Guillermo Rai.

After all, Vinicius has also enjoyed a scintillating campaign and is one of the frontrunners to walk away with the Ballon d’Or, owing to his clutch performances for Real Madrid.

The Brazilian also spoke to the media today and was asked about the Ballon d’Or. Interestingly, he went on to name Bellingham as his pick to win the Golden Ball.

“I would give the Ballon d’Or to Bellingham,” he said, as quoted by Carrusel.

When Bellingham was informed about Vinicius picking him as the favourite for the Ballon d’Or, the England international responded by saying:

“If that’s how he feels, then you can split it in two (laughs).”

The responses show the strong bond and camaraderie that the two superstars of Real Madrid share.

Both are contenders to lift the Golden Ball this year and a win in the Champions League, coupled with strong performances in the summer’s international tournaments, would further enhance their chances.
