Manchester United and England forward Mason Greenwood was arrested by police on Saturday morning after allegations that he has breached the conditions of his bail
Manchester United are aware that England striker Mason Greenwood has been arrested by police on suspicion of breaching his bail conditions.
Greenwood, 21, has not played for United since January after being bailed following his arrest on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill. He has been arrested again on Saturday morning after allegations that he has breached the conditions of his bail by contacting the alleged victim.
Senior Old Trafford sources confirmed that the club had been informed of the latest development. But United will not be making any comment on the matter while the police continue with their investigation.
Greenwood, who was capped by England in August 2020, is now being held for questioning after being arrested at his Cheshire home. He was suspended by United after cops launched their investigation into the initial complaint, which was sparked by a social media post making serious allegations.
Greenwood was released on bail on February 2 and has been awaiting his fate ever since. The Bradford-born forward joined the club’s youth academy at the age of six and was just 17 when he made his first-team debut.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said in a statement: “Greater Manchester Police are aware of an allegation regarding a 21-year-old man breaching his bail conditions and an arrest has been made on Saturday 15 October 2022. Enquiries are ongoing at this time.”
