The forced separation has put strains on the marriage and Mason now realises he may need to return to the Premiership next season.

He has been on loan at La Liga club Getafe since Old Trafford bosses ruled last September that his future lay elsewhere, after attempted rape and assault charges against him were dropped.

Mason lives with partner Harriet and their baby daughter Summer in Madrid.

Dad Andrew has also set up a base nearby to help his son cope with life in Spain.

But mum Melanie has remained at the couple’s home in Bowdon, placing a strain on their relationship.

United have repeatedly insisted Greenwood’s most likely future is a permanent move away from the club.

But new minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe sparked controversy last week by suggesting the club could change its mind and bring the 22-year-old striker back to Old Trafford.

The Sun understands Greenwood has expected to remain in Spain, with a move to Barcelona under discussion.

But helping ease the stresses on his family’s life could be a factor in favour of any potential move back.

A source said: “Mason has been very happy in Spain and knows a lot of top clubs including Barcelona are interested in him.

“He was annoyed with United about how they handled the situation following his charges, so has always been reluctant to return.

“But his mum and dad have spent long periods apart since Mason moved to Spain and everyone knows long­distance relationships can be hard, especially given the pressures they were under ever since Mason was first arrested in January 2022.

“It’s been a very difficult two years for the Greenwood family.

“He thinks a lot of their problems could be solved if he went back to United. He’s very close to his parents, so it’s one of the reasons why a move back home could happen.”

Greenwood has scored seven goals in 25 league games for Getafe.

He remains contracted to United until 2025.
