The Spanish club announced the deal just minutes before the summer transfer window deadline arrived on Friday.

United will receive no loan fee and will cover the majority of his £75,000-a-week wage during his time in Spain.

A club statement added: "The move enables Greenwood to begin to rebuild his career away from Manchester United.

"The club will continue to offer its support to Mason and his family during this period of transition."

Greenwood may not make his debut until September 17, when Getafe host Osasuna.

It comes after United announced that Greenwood had "mutually agreed" to leave the club following an internal probe into his arrest.

He was arrested in October last year but all charges were dropped in February by the Crown Prosecution Service.

Greenwood still has two years left to run with the option of a further 12 months had the club wanted to take it up.

Failing to offload him would have left the club facing a payment of nearly £8million.

It comes after new details of Greenwood's Getafe transfer emerged – including the striker's kit number and his £75,000-a-week salary.
