MASON Greenwood could reportedly make a sensational Manchester United return with the club considering him their best player, according to a source.
The Guardian's Jamie Jackson made the incredible claims in the United fan-run Stretford Paddock's podcast.
Jackson claims that the Red Devils could be open to welcoming Greenwood back into the first-team after he completes his loan spell at Getafe.
Speaking on the podcast he said: "I do think there is a way he comes back to Manchester United.
"He's not expected to play for United again but I can see it, I'm not saying it will happen though.
"You just don't know in football and I do know they think he's the best player there – even better than Bruno [Fernandes]."

Greenwood, 22, was arrested last year on suspicion of rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm in January last year.
But all charges were dropped in February by the Crown Prosecution Service.
The striker – who has denied any wrongdoing – was provided with a pathway back to football by La Liga side Getafe.
But Jackson also said that if the thought became a reality and Greenwood returned, he believed "all hell would break loose".

He added: "I do see a scenario but I think it is very small. The language used at the time of his departure was interesting.
"People may have wanted him back for the football side. Who's football? Murtough and Ten Hag really, maybe Darren Fletcher.
"Maybe he thought he was going to have Greenwood as his number one striker."
Since joining the Spanish club, Greenwood has scored once and assisted once in La Liga.
Utd must make a decision on his future soon, with his contract expiring in the summer of 2025.
In the rest of the podcast Jackson discussed how Ten Hag had been overwhelmed by an injury crisis and off-field issues.
The hosts also talked with the reporter about the long-running potential takeover and Jadon Sancho's refusal to apologise to the gaffer.
It comes as Greenwood spoke out after scoring his first professional goal for nearly two years following his loan move to Getafe.
