1. Vehicle Quality

Have you ever booked a car on a rideshare app thinking you'd be riding in style, only to find out you're riding in a tin can with wheels? When using a ridesharing service, there's always some uncertainty regarding the type of car you'll get. It could be a small, dirty vehicle that doesn't fit your needs. Some ridesharing companies offer luxury options, but there's no guarantee that the car provided will actually be luxurious. However, if you're looking for a stylish ride, a limo service may be the way to go. With a limo service, you have the freedom to choose your own vehicle, and you can rest assured that it will be clean and meet your expectations.

2. Fluctuating Price

One of the most frustrating aspects of using ridesharing apps is that their pricing is unreliable. The cost of a ride usually depends on the availability of drivers and the demand for rides at a certain time. If there are fewer drivers available than there are people who need rides, the prices may increase. However, this is not the case with limousine services from LSG International. When you book a limo service online, the price you are quoted is the price you will pay. No sneaky upcharges. No fluctuating rates. That means that you will always know the exact cost of your ride ahead of time and can plan accordingly.

3. Boring Experiences

Let's face it - the random Honda Civic that picks you up on the ridesharing app can't compare to a quality stretch limousine, luxury SUV, or party bus provided by LSG International. Booking a limo or luxury car driving service can add a touch of class that you won't get with a stranger's car, even if you're just hitting the town with your spouse. If you're looking to make the event extra special, then opting for a limo service is the way to go.

Limo Service Pricing

When it comes to choosing a chauffeured service, price is always an important factor to consider. It's a good idea to compare prices and get an idea of what is a reasonable price to pay. However, keep in mind that the cheapest price may not always be the best value. In fact, it's possible that the cheapest service may end up being disappointing. Always remember the saying, "Price is what you should pay; value is what you should get. "So, don't compromise on quality for the sake of a lower price.

Whether you're renting a limo or a party bus for a wedding or a major event, it's important to find a reliable and trustworthy service provider that can offer you the best value for your money. At LSG International, we take the guesswork out of pricing by offering online quotes, which you can get in just a couple of minutes.

In addition to online reviews, you can also ask friends and family members for limo rental referrals. If a relative or close friend has used a specific company for many years, chances are they're a good choice.

Car Service Rental Fleet

A reliable car service company should have a diverse and extensive fleet with different amenities and features to offer. It is important to note that their fleet should have options for accommodating different size groups of passengers.

As everyone's needs and preferences vary when it comes to using a limo rental service, it is essential to communicate the number of passengers you will have to the company. This will enable them to provide you with the most suitable options for your situation. They have cars that can accommodate two to three passengers and larger coach buses that can accommodate dozens.

Insurance Coverage

This might sound like a no-brainer, but any limo service company worth your money should have the appropriate car insurance and licensing.

Personal auto policies Personal auto policies won't cut it - you don't want to be held responsible if there's any sort of mishap on the road.

Two unwanted wingers. Two hugely talented stars whose United futures have been shattered by off-pitch issues rather than match performances. Two players for whom United reportedly want around £40 million in transfer fees.

Both wanted by Juventus.

It has been five years since the Old Lady lifted the Scudetto and this summer an overhaul is being orchestrated. Max Allegri was sacked after losing his head during a Coppa Italia match. Former Bologna coach Thiago Motta has replaced him and will be switching from a 3-5-2 with a 4-2-3-1. For this, Juve need wingers.

Reports have been circulating for the last fortnight that Motta has made United’s Mason Greenwood his top priority of the summer.

Claims of a €40 million bid were quickly dismissed, but there is clear interest. Greenwood is apparently keen and it is now just a case of selling players to raise funds for the purchase.

But wait a minute. Greenwood is not the only talented winger United are desperate to offload. What about Jadon Sancho? Why settle for one United winger when you can have two?

“Sancho is considered one of the greatest phenomena of his generation, he knows how to dribble, assist and score,” Gazzetta dello Sport notes.

“He can play both on the right and on the left. In terms of reliability there are no doubts, which is why [Juventus sporting director] Giuntoli [is pursuing] a loan deal.

“Bringing him to Continassa on a temporary basis and with the salary paid by United, even if only in part, would be a great coup, but it is not a very simple operation.”

It is “not simple” because United would prefer an outright sale. Juventus are aware of this and positioning themselves ready to take Sancho on loan should United fail to find a buyer.

It is not the first time the Bianconeri have attempted to loan Sancho. The player had agreed to a switch in January, which “was practically done”.

“Sancho had said yes to the temporary transfer to Juventus, the club ditto, but everything ran aground at the last minute due to the missed ok from Massimiliano Allegri, not willing to change formation in the middle of the season,” Gazzetta explain.

“At that moment his Juventus side was going well … and the coach did not want to take a player who could have upset the balance, forcing him to switch to the trident. So nothing happened.”

It would certainly be quite some coup if Juventus were to start 2024/25 with Sancho on the left wing and Greenwood on the right. With both stars playing to their full potential, Juventus might finally have the firepower to regain their Serie A supremacy, while United fans are left lamenting the two that got away.

Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood rejects calls to cancel tour with Israeli musician Dudu Tassa

The musician Jonny Greenwood is pushing back on critics who say he should abandon a plan to tour with an Israeli collaborator because of the Israel-Hamas war.

Greenwood and Dudu Tassa, an Israeli rock star from a prominent Mizrahi musical family, are scheduled to perform together on the European festival circuit this summer, a year after they released a joint record that featured singers from across the Middle East. Some of the dates were rescheduled after the pair canceled shows in the immediate wake of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

The performances are drawing criticism amid widespread anti-Israel sentiment in the arts and in Europe, and Greenwood has faced calls to cancel.

In a statement posted to social media on Tuesday, he said he would do no such thing — and said that calls to silence Israeli artists are counterproductive.

“Others choose to believe this kind of project is unjustifiable and are urging the silence of this — or any — artistic effort made by Israeli Jews,” Greenwood wrote. “But I can’t join that call: The silencing of Israeli film makers/musicians/dancers when their work tours abroad — especially when it’s at the urging of their fellow western filmmakers/musicians/artists — feels unprogressive to me, not least because it’s these people that are invariably the most progressive members of any society.”

Greenwood’s relationship to Israel is long. He is married to Israeli visual artist Sharona Katan, who has said the family identifies as Jewish, and recorded guitar on albums by Tassa and fellow Israeli Shye Ben Tzur before making the album with Tassa. Both artists opened for Radiohead on some tour dates in 2017.

Tassa is the grandson of Daoud Al-Kuwaity, one of the most famous Iraqi composers of the 20th century, who emigrated to Israel in 1951. In his statement, Greenwood notes that the songs of Al-Kuwaity and his brother Saleh “are still staples of Arab-wide radio stations — though sadly their heritage as Jews is never mentioned any longer.”

Radiohead, which has won several Grammy Awards and sold millions of records since the 1990s, have been the targets of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel, especially in the lead-up to their 2017 concert in Tel Aviv. In response, lead singer Thom Yorke called BDS protesters “offensive” and “patronizing,” adding, “The person who knows most about these things is Jonny.”

In an Instagram post this week, Tassa called Greenwood “an amazing person who is always willing to take risks for peace and justice,” and a dear friend.

“Our desire and choice as musicians from different backgrounds (he is an English rocker and I am a Jewish-Israeli who absorbed roots of Arab culture) have always been and will continue to be, to strive to understand the ‘other,’ to get to know him and to introduce him to us through the language of music — completely the opposite of fostering a one-sided discourse of boycotts and threats,” Tassa wrote.

“The truth is that the boycotters and condemners do not promote anything — just more hatred,” he added. “I hope and wish that together our performance will unite and connect people from different backgrounds and be part of a small step towards a better future.”

Greenwood did not explicitly mention the war, the Palestinians or Gaza in his statement, angering some of his critics. But he acknowledged that his planned performances with Tassa come at a difficult time.

“No art is as ‘important’ as stopping all the death and suffering around us. How can it be? But doing nothing seems a worse option,” he wrote. “And silencing Israeli artists for being born Jewish in Israel doesn’t seem like any way to reach an understanding between the two sides of this apparently endless conflict.”

, S.C. —

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources continued its search Monday for a woman who fell in Lake Greenwood while tubing over the weekend.

(Previous Coverage)

Family said that woman's name is 30-year-old South Carolina National Guard Staff Sergeant, Porsha Griffin. Her mother, Amicka, said they are holding out hope they can find Griffin, but all they can do is wait.

Griffin's mother said it all started with a phone call.

"They asked me, are you sitting down? Are you OK? Right then, just tell me what's wrong. Because if you're asking me this, something's not right," Amicka Griffin said.

In that moment, Griffin was told her daughter Porsha was missing.

"That was something I never wanted. They told me my daughter was missing. I asked them what happened, missing where. What do you mean missing? Well, they went on out on a boat ride," Griffin said. "They went on out a boat ride. They went tubing, and two of them were on the tube, and she fell off and didn't resurface."

In their initial report, officials with SCDNR say it appears life jackets were not being used at the time of the incident.

Crews have been searching for Griffin since Saturday, leaving her mother to wait and hope.

"Waiting is the most-worse part of this whole situation," Griffin said. "When will we find it? Will we ever find it? How will it remain a mystery and just waiting and more trying?"

The family of a mother, a registered nurse, and a sergeant in the South Carolina National Guard now pray and hope for some closure.

"She wanted a reunion, but I didn't want it to be this kind of reunion," Griffin said.

The countdown to Leeds United's play-off campaign is edging ever closer as preparations for their semi-final clash with Norwich City continues.

The Whites travel to Carrow Road on Sunday lunchtime, hoping to put one foot in the Wembley final in their first leg tie before returning to Elland Road. Daniel Farke's side have won already this season in East Anglia, and have not lost away to the Canaries since April 2018.

Leeds are expected to welcome both Patrick Bamford and Daniel James back into the fold for the fixture this weekend. But can United further bolster their squad for the tie with players out on loan from LS11?

The short answer is no. The Yorkshire club currently have 10 players plying their trade away from the football club across Europe and in the Football League.

Jack Harrison, Maximillian Wober, Brendan Aaaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Diego Llorente, are just a few of the names whose seasons are yet to conclude this term. Sam Greenwood, Luke Ayling, Cody Drameh and Ian Poveda's Championship stints at Middlesbrough, Birmingham City and Sheffield Wednesday respectively, finished following the final day last weekend and will now return to Elland Road.

However, those four players will be unable to compete in the final part of Leeds' season. A change in the loan regulations back in the 2017/18 season ended the loaning of players up to specific dates and introduced a new system whereby loans were extended up to the start of the next player registration window.

The EFL’s player registration regulations state: “A Player whose Standard Loan expires (or terminates) at the end of the Season of the Transferee Club but prior to the completion of the League Matches of his Transferor Club (where it is a Member Club) will not be eligible to play in any remaining League Matches for the Transferor Club in that Season. Examples where this may apply are (a) differential season ends for different divisions or (b) a player finishing a loan and his ‘parent club’ has qualified for the play-off competitions.”

So even though Ayling, Greenwood, Drameh and Poveda's seasons are finished, they will only be able to watch the action unfold from the stands. But, it is a different situation for defender, Joe Rodon.

The Welsh international arrived from Tottenham Hotspur on season-long loan at the start of the campaign. Given that Leeds' term is yet to conclude, the 26-year-old is still eligible to feature for the Whites ahead of their trip to Norwich, hoping to add to the 18 clean sheets he kept during the league season.

Analysing the gear of Radiohead's resident genius.

Radiohead’s ninth studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool, was released with very little publicity, apart from, you know, shutting down their entire online presence a few days before the release of their first single.

After some compilation albums, we thought we’d have a look at the gear of Jonny Greenwood, one of the multi-instrumentalists in the band.

Jonny Greenwood

In a career with Radiohead spanning decades now, it’s not going to be easy to list all his gear, so we thought we’d just focus on some of his most used guitar gear, live and in the studio.

Revisit other Gear Rundowns from the archives here.


This guitar was acquired by Jonny in 1995 after his other Tele was stolen, and has stuck with him ever since. He uses the stock Lace Sensor pickups, had a killswitch installed and made special rewiring modifications. The killswitch is only engaged when pressed down, and so it can produce a kind of stutter effect, which he used in solos on ‘Airbag’, ‘Paranoid Android’ and ‘Electioneering’ in the studio versions. Jonny has made the guitar his own by adding stickers on the pickguard and the body.

Apart from the Tele Plus, the only guitar that has endured the career of Jonny is his Starcaster, which he bought in 1995. He normally plays this for the more mellow songs, as the Tele is better suited to his more aggressive live style of playing. He infamously uses it with a cello bow on ‘The Pyramid Song’, and also uses it for live performances of ‘Street Spirit’. This guitar also has the original pickups still installed, and there are no known modifications to it. In the studio he used it a lot during the Kid A and Amnesiac sessions, and likely on tracks from The King of Limbs.


This is Jonny’s main amp for distorted tones these days, although when he first got it he was running clean and distorted through it. The model he currently uses is from 1988, and even though he uses it for distortion, the amp’s overdrive is never engaged, rather he gets that sound from a Marshall Shredmaster pedal, discussed below. The amp was used a lot during the recording of The Bends, so if you’re wondering where the classic overdriven sound on the chorus of ‘Creep’ comes from, its probably from this. However, he doesn’t use it in the studio anymore, and only plays it when playing older songs live.

Jonny’s love affair with Fender products continued when he picked up a Twin Reverb to use as his clean tone amp in 1993. It didn’t last super long in his setup, with a Vox AC30 replacing it by 1997, but it was influential in shaping his basic setup, with clean tones and slightly softer distortion through one amp, and heavy distortion through the other. He used a Silverface Twin Reverb briefly in 1995, but it was stolen later that year so he returned to this amp.

Like many famous guitarists, Jonny has been using these amps for most of his career. He has had a range of different models, including two AC30TBX’s, a Dave Petersen Special AC30 and an AC30C2.


This guitar pedal is Jonny’s main means of distortion, and has been for a long time. It was used on every song on Pablo Honey except Thinking About You, and has been used extensively since. It has been used on some of Radiohead’s biggest songs, including ‘The Bends’, ‘High and Dry’, ‘Paranoid Android’ and ‘Bones’.

Jonny used the RE201 since 1995 in the studio, and used it live between 1996 and 2009 in conjunction with the RE20 between 2007 and 2009. However, both of the RE201 units he had wore out over time, and now he uses the RE20 exclusively. He has recorded with one kind of the Space Echo or the other on every album since OK Computer.

This was the pedal that he used from 1996 to 2009 to get a distorted sound out of his clean amp. It was never used in conjunction with his Shredmaster or Fender Eighty-Five, and he uses a Boss LS2 to switch between the two channels. Jonny either uses it for adding volume and a little gain to his sound or for adding a solid whack of distortion when required.

Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke have formed a new band, The Smile. Keep up with them here.

Jonny Greenwood: how the Radiohead guitarist became one of the world's best film composers

Jonny Greenwood might be best known as the lead guitarist in British band Radiohead, but in recent years he's made quite the splash in the film music world, composing some of the best movie scores – with Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations to his name.

When did Jonny Greenwood start composing?

Despite having leapt into the public consciousness through his involvement with the band Radiohead, an early solo departure – the documentary score, Bodysong, in 2003 – lead Jonny Greenwood to receive his first orchestral commission.

2004’s Smear was premiered by the London Sinfonietta and in the same year Greenwood was announced as Composer in Residence with the BBC Concert Orchestra.

His first commission for the BBC Concert Orchestra, Popcorn Superhet Receiver, would play a role in his first full film score in 2007.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood is an Oscar-nominated masterpiece – though Greenwood’s visceral score was ineligible thanks to the use of that earlier piece.

He was, however, nominated for his first BAFTA and won both a Critics Choice award and a London Evening Standard award.

His second score, for Anh Hung Tran’s film Norwegian Wood (2010) would see the composer utilise another existing work, this time Doghouse (composed the same year). Music from that score would go on to be performed at the BBC Proms.

Greenwood would compose the score to yet another critically acclaimed film in 2011. We Need To Talk About Kevin, Lynne Ramsey’s uncompromising 2011 family drama, saw the composer create an unsettling soundscape.

The following year Greenwood reunited with Paul Thomas Anderson for The Master, which cemented their creative partnership. They followed it with Inherent Vice in 2016 and Phantom Thread in 2017. It was Phantom Thread which really threw Greenwood into the upper echelons of the film composing landscape, winning him nominations for the Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe for Best Original Score.

2017 also saw him reunite with Lynne Ramsey for the acclaimed psychological thriller You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix.

Greenwood received his first Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Phantom Thread, not to mention an Ivor Novello award.

His film work has proffered some of the most intense and original scores for some while, with pretty much all of them dealing with humanity’s dark side, its flaws and complex emotional depths.

Meanwhile, he was still composing concert works for orchestra. In 2019, his piece Horror Vacui for solo violin and 68 string instruments received its world premiere at the BBC Proms in a Late Night Prom curated by Greenwood himself. The piece then went on to win Jonny Greenwood an Ivor Composer Award.

2021 was a big year for Greenwood in terms of major film releases, with his scores for Spencer, The Power of the Dog and Licorice Pizza receiving outings in cinemas. The music for the psychological drama fictionalising the life of Diana Spencer saw Greenwood bringing together Baroque techniques with jazz textures, with the ominous, dark overtones he has become known for.

Benedict Cumberbatch starred in the western psychological drama The Power of the Dog, which Greenwood scored and which was commissioned by Netflix. The film received seven nominations at the 79th Golden Globe Awards, winning three, including Best Motion Picture – Drama. Greenwood's score was also nominated, but lost out to Hans Zimmer's epic choral and orchestral score for Dune.

How Jonny Greenwood launched his own classical record label

In 2019, Jonny Greenwood announced that he would be releasing some of his own music on his new classical record label, Octatonic. As part of the label's launch, Greenwood's Three Miniatures from Water was released alongside Industry, Michael Gordon's epic, noisy work for amplified cello and electronics.

‘I’ve decided to start documenting the musicians I encounter in the contemporary classical music world,’ Greenwood said at the time of launch. ‘I’m only recording soloists, or small groups, and as it’s my party, I’m including in the release some of my own small ideas that have never been recorded.’

Are Radiohead classically trained?

Jonny Greenwood is the only member of Radiohead to be classically trained. A term into his studies of psychology and music at Oxford Brookes University, he left to sign a six-album deal with EMI and Radiohead.

The Top 5 Film Scores by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood

Jonny Greenwood joined Radiohead, his older brother Colin’s band, as a keyboardist. Then he became one of alternative rock’s most dynamic and unique guitarists. As Radiohead evolved away from the Pixies-inspired sound of their ’90s post-grunge hit “Creep,” Greenwood employed new instruments and colors with the band.

He could be found on stage, swallowed by a mop of hair, attacking his Fender Telecaster like a possessed version of Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore. How many alt-rock guitarists built riffs from octatonic scales, anyway? And it doesn’t matter whether you know what octatonic scales are. Listen to “Just” from Radiohead’s The Bends. It may reference Magazine’s “Shot by Both Sides” a bit, but it also reveals Greenwood’s fondness for Debussy.

On Radiohead’s first U.S. No. 1 album, Kid A, Greenwood used a modular synth to create the drum beat for “Idioteque.” On the same album, Greenwood introduced the mainstream to an early electronic instrument called the ondes Martenot on “How to Disappear Completely.”

Film audiences were exposed to Greenwood’s singular sonic imprint—outside Radiohead—beginning with Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood in 2007. But Greenwood had already been pushing the boundaries of a rock band with Radiohead on the albums OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, and In Rainbows before scoring films. (Listening to “Faust Arp” from In Rainbows, Greenwood’s orchestration foreshadows his work on Anderson’s 2021 film Licorice Pizza.)

Bach spoke of music as a science. He commanded an emotional response from listeners because he knew exactly how to make that happen. No mystery, only precision. You get the sense Greenwood has similar control.

Greenwood plays guitar, recorder, viola, and keyboards. He also uses programming language software to create original sounds. He invents new instruments and sounds, escaping the limitations of commercial software. And his instrument of choice on later Radiohead albums has been the orchestra. “Burn the Witch,” from Radiohead’s most recent studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool, utilizes an orchestra where you would otherwise find a guitar riff. Enjoy the top five film scores by Jonny Greenwood.

[RELATED: The Best 30 Jonny Greenwood Quotes]

Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, The Master tells the story of Freddie Quell, a World War II Navy vet trying to adjust to society. He meets Lancaster Dodd, who leads a religious movement called The Cause. Quell is accepted into the movement.

Greenwood’s score is accompanied by four recordings from the post-war era, including “Get Thee Behind Me Satan” featuring Ella Fitzgerald. His original compositions are soothing but also unsettling. The uncomfortable moments recall Greenwood’s compositional North Star, Olivier Messiaen. The influence of another French composer, Claude Debussy, is heard throughout the score. Debussy influenced Messiaen. Both Frenchmen were known for their unique sense of harmony. Even before his time as a leading modern classical composer, Jonny Greenwood displayed his unique approach to harmony and orchestration within Radiohead.

There Will Be Blood is Jonny Greenwood’s first score for director Paul Thomas Anderson. The period drama is adapted from the 1927 novel Oil! by Upton Sinclair. Greenwood used an orchestra as his instrument to amplify the horror caused by the greed of oilman Daniel Plainview, played by Daniel Day-Lewis. Anderson’s naming of Plainview is Dickensian. Remember the pickpocket Artful Dodger from Oliver Twist? The score, like greed, is unsettling and timeless.

Pablo Larraín’s film tells the story of Princess Diana in 1991, considering a divorce from Prince Charles and leaving the British royal family. The ghosts of George Frideric Handel’s Baroque harpsichord suites are present in Greenwood’s score. But, like the madness consuming Princess Diana, Greenwood unravels the familiarity of Handel with dark piano and experimental jazz. Listen to “Delusion/Miracle” for the unraveling. If you thought a score about British royalty would be inherently predictable, you haven’t been paying attention to Greenwood’s life’s work.

Jane Campion directed a revisionist Western based on Thomas Savage’s novel of the same name. Greenwood’s elegant score features sparse strings, exposing the true nature of each instrument. The exposé parallels the character Phil Burbank—rough and crude—yet a former Classics student at Yale. Greenwood’s musical discovery echoes Burbank’s true sexuality, hidden behind a gruff and mean exterior. “25 Years” could have been a Radiohead song.

Set in London in the 1950s, a dressmaker finds his muse in a young waitress. Phantom Thread is director Paul Thomas Anderson’s fourth collaboration with Jonny Greenwood. Anderson, Greenwood, and actor Daniel Day-Lewis previously worked together on There Will Be Blood (2007). Greenwood took inspiration from Canadian classical pianist Glenn Gould and his interpretations of Bach. Greenwood is exceptional at using an orchestra like a jazz musician. He’s open to moments of discovery and accident and improvisation. The score is laced with mid-20th-century glamour. Greenwood received his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score for Phantom Thread.

The prospect of Mason Greenwood returning to Manchester United seems increasingly unlikely after news emerged that Getafe are considering turning his loan move into a permanent arrangement.

Greenwood, 22, joined the mid-table La Liga side on a season-long loan on the final day of the summer transfer window, and it is there, in the south of Spain’s capital Madrid, that he has been trying to rebuild his career.

That move came about after Manchester United conducted a lengthy internal review into the forward’s behaviour, a process that concluded in August. This was in response to Greenwood being charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour, all of which he denied. He had been due to stand trial but following the withdrawal of key witnesses, the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service announced in February it had discontinued the charges.

United’s initial plan was to reintegrate Greenwood into their first-team squad but after criticism and internal backlash, they announced Greenwood would be leaving Old Trafford. The expectation was he would not play for his boyhood club again, having not made an appearance since a match against West Ham in January last year.

Nearly four months on from his departure, Getafe president Angel Corres has said the Spanish side are “considering buying” Greenwood. The Athletic has also revealed that they will only have to pay 80 per cent of any agreed price should they purchase him outright.

The Spanish club — who do not expect Greenwood to return to United — did not pay a loan fee for the player’s services and the 20 per cent stake they have arranged was viewed as a way to secure value regardless of his next move. If United sell him to another club, Getafe will earn 20 per cent of the transfer fee.

So where does this latest development leave Greenwood? Dan Sheldon and Guillermo Rai answer some of the key questions surrounding his future.

What does this latest development mean for Greenwood’s future?

Since he joined Getafe, United’s position on Greenwood has been for him to rehabilitate himself at another club before they look to sell him next year.

The latest development doesn’t change that. If anything, it crystallises the fact the England international will not play for his boyhood side again.

United agreeing to insert a 20 per cent sell-on clause into his contract, meaning Getafe stand to profit if they sell him elsewhere, is indicative of the desperate situation they found themselves in earlier this year.

They needed to find him a club amid a backdrop of controversy and knew there was not going to be a queue of teams willing to take the risk in fear of public backlash.

By signing Greenwood, Getafe took the brunt of the criticism and felt entitled to receive a portion of his transfer fee should he be sold elsewhere, given they were taking on responsibility for rehabilitating him and staying patient as he returned to match fitness.

How has Greenwood been doing in Spain?

Although Greenwood is yet to return to the sort of form that earned him a new contract at United in 2021 that was due to take him up to 2025, he has made a valued contribution at Getafe.

When he first arrived, after 18 months without playing first-team football, Getafe head coach Jose Bordalas gave him a ‘mini pre-season’. The training was focused on getting Greenwood used to the repetition of maximum effort.

The England international came on as a substitute in three of Getafe’s first four games, but since then he has been starting regularly, and has scored four goals and got three assists in 13 appearances.

A recent thunderous effort from the edge of the box against Almeria was a reminder of his abilities as a footballer but the club have made clear that they do not know if he will return to the same level he was at while still playing for United and the decision-makers at Getafe don’t think he will reach peak fitness again until January. But some of his other performances have also prompted praise, particularly when he set up a goal for Borja Mayoral after dribbling past three players.

Some fans of rival teams, such as those who support Osasuna and Athletic Bilbao, have criticised Getafe for signing the player, with whistles and shouts of, “Greenwood, die!”

How is he getting on in Spain off the pitch?

Although he is considered shy and even introverted by some, he is gradually catching on to the jokes of his Spanish and Argentine team-mates. Getafe wanted him to take Spanish lessons, so he has a teacher for that.

On a personal level, he is happy in Madrid with his partner and daughter, as well as with the weather, food and house they have. There has been relatively little media pressure.

The club point out he has returned to posting on his social networks, something unthinkable when he first arrived.

How is he viewed in Getafe?

During Greenwood’s first training session after signing, fans screamed in celebration every time he touched the ball. Now they often wait for him at the exit of the complex’s car park. At Getafe’s 16,500-capacity Estadio Coliseum home, fans of all ages are regularly seen wearing his shirt.

A senior source at the club, speaking anonymously to be able to talk freely, told The Athletic in November that if he continues with his form, Getafe would discuss with United to see if he can continue in Spain beyond this season.

And speaking during a hospital visit on behalf of the club this week, Getafe president Corres said: “We have not talked about price. We have talked about looking at the situation and seeing what they propose because there has also been a change of shareholding there at Manchester United.

“But we are still happy with the meetings and with the videoconferences we have with them. It is too early to consider either continuing for one more season or that they will propose a price and we will commit the whole (of the contract) because we have a percentage and to buy the rest.

“I believe a lot (in Greenwood). From here, we continue to work periodically, we continue to meet with United to see if they are happy. The truth is that they are happy with the treatment, not only from the fans of Getafe, but also from the whole of Spain. Now we have to keep on defending him.

“He didn’t play for 16 months and in January/February he will get the rhythm. He will give us satisfaction.”

Have United been monitoring his progress?

The club track all their loan players. Greenwood is no exception. They have representatives attending games in Spain, but also watch his matches remotely on video.

When he joined Getafe at the beginning of September, Greenwood was accompanied by United’s player support team to assist him during his first few days, which included helping with travel arrangements and finding suitable accommodation. After that, the player support officer returned to Manchester, which left it to Getafe and Greenwood to take responsibility for his day-to-day life.

United continue to offer support and oversight but it is only used by Greenwood, or the Spanish club, when either believe it is necessary.

Will INEOS becoming part owners of United change anything?

While it is unlikely Greenwood has been on INEOS’s radar during negotiations with the Glazer family over buying a stake in United, it will become their problem when they assume control of their football department, something that is expected to happen soon.

The easiest thing for INEOS to do would be to continue down the road of Greenwood’s career being away from Old Trafford. Given that United already did a U-turn by deciding his future lay away from Old Trafford, it would be a shock for INEOS to reverse that.

The options boil down to selling Greenwood or reintegrating him into the first-team squad. Greenwood’s contract runs up to 2025 with an option to extend for a year. United could extend it to either protect or enhance his value, but even that would likely draw unwanted questions.

Could he play for United again?

After The Athletic reported in August that United were going to bring him back into the fold, some club staff considered their positions and discussed the possibility of a strike. United also came under pressure from politicians, charities and supporters before changing their plans. That scrutiny will only return, and likely intensify, if there is even a small chance of Greenwood coming back to play for United again.


Mason Greenwood and Manchester United: The U-turn - what happened and why

After their U-turn, United’s statement said there are “difficulties” with Greenwood “recommencing his career” at the club and that it “would be most appropriate for him to do so away from Old Trafford”.

However, that same statement exonerated Greenwood of any guilt, saying, “We have concluded… Mason did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged”, and the club did not completely rule out a return.

The intent and expectation at United is that he completes his rehabilitation on loan to Getafe before sealing a permanent move away from the club.
