Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood is currently still on bail over allegations he raped and assaulted a young woman.

The 20-year-old was arrested in late January after images and videos were posted on social media, while he was also questioned on suspicion of making threats to kill.

Greenwood was subsequently suspended from playing or training by United following his arrest.

The last of his 129 appearances for the club came in a 1-0 win over West Ham on January 22.

Former England international Greenwood had his bail – which originally was set to expire in April – extended until mid-June.

Now as we approach the deadline, false reports have circulated online that a verdict had been reached and Greenwood may be reinstated.

However, the police investigation is still ongoing and therefore Greenwood remains suspended by Man United.

This is now the second time since his arrest that rumours about the forward have spread on social media.

In April United were forced to deny claims Greenwood would be returning due to his profile being visible on their website.

“There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” the club said.

“We removed his profile from the club app soon after he was removed from the squad in January.

“This was in order to remove Mason from interactive elements of the app, such as team predictions etc.

“However, his profile was never removed from the website as he remains a Manchester United player, albeit not currently part of the squad while the legal process unfolds.”
