21-year-old Manchester United striker and forward, Mason Greenwood who was initially granted bail after his arrest on suspicion of rape, assault, and making threats to kill, has been arrested again on suspicion of breaching his bail conditions.
Greenwood who has not played for Manchester United since January was arrested on Saturday morning after being accused of breaching the conditions of his bail by contacting the alleged victim.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson told The Sun;
“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.”
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.
He was originally due to answer his bail on April 30 but the decision was pushed back after a court hearing in June.
Though he’s suspended by Manchester United, he still receives his £75,000-a-week salary pending the outcome of any criminal proceedings.
Greenwood has been removed from FIFA 22 and dropped by sponsors Nike in the wake of the allegations.
Football Manager 2022 has also confirmed he will not feature in the game. All merchandise bearing the No11’s name has been axed from the official Utd site and teammates have unfollowed him on Instagram.
With the rape case against him still not settled, his promising domestic and international career remains in jeopardy.
