The Bradford-born striker has caused quite a stir in Spain, recapturing much of his old form after so long out of the game.
According to transfermarkt.com, the United academy graduate has scored five goals and created four in just 17 games this season.

The young attacker put in some fine displays for his side during the festive month, most notably in a 0-3 away win against Sevilla.
Greenwood scored a penalty and assisted another in a game where he was awarded a 8.1 by Sofascore.
Three days later, he followed this up with another great game against Spanish giants, Atletico Madrid. Here, he was awarded a 8.0 rating by Sofascore and was influential in his side’s impressive 3-3 draw.
The England international’s fine form has seen many Spanish giants circle over the player as all of Getafe, Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad, Real Madrid and Barcelona are said to be interested in signing up the talented young forward when his loan spells is up.
The higher level Greenwood reaches at the La Liga club, the more rumours will grow about his future and what Manchester United and INEOS decide to do with him. Whether as planned he moves on permanently in 2024 or if there is an avenue for a return to England, is still up for debate.
