“I wanted to clear up a misunderstanding that there has been,” Bordalas mentioned on Sunday. “I said that Mason Greenwood came to Getafe because he had spoken to Bellingham. They have clarified to me that it was not like that. I apologise. It [Greenwood’s signing] was because of our interest. He was offered to us, and we were very interested.
“I simply wished to make clear that, there was no unhealthy intention.”
Earlier this summer, Bellingham moved on a permanent transfer to Madrid from Borussia Dortmund whereas Greenwood and United mutually agreed that the ahead would leave the club after a six-month investigation into his conduct.
A criminal case against Greenwood after allegations of attempted rape and assault was discontinued in February.
It was his first competitive game since January 2022.
Greenwood wrote: “Happy to make my Getafe debut ending with 3 factors.”
“We have been pleasantly stunned,” Bordalas said of Greenwood’s performance. “He has helped the group, however we work with him with persistence and tranquility. He hasn’t performed for many months, and I suppose it will need to have been a big day for him. It is a satisfaction to really feel like a footballer and now we have seen the response of the followers, his teammates and himself.
“He needs time to adapt, and we have to be patient with him. He generates expectations. He will be a positive for Getafe and for Spanish football.”
