Greater Manchester Police have provided an update on Manchester United winger Mason Greenwood, who hasn’t featured for the club since January after serious allegations.
Greenwood was apprehended by police on January 30 after allegations of rape, assault and threats to kill. The 20-year-old was immediately suspended by the club and is currently out on bail.
More than three months have passed since the allegations against Greenwood were publicised and Greater Manchester Police have now confirmed that they are continuing to investigate.
“We are continuing to investigate a report made to us on Sunday 30 January of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence,” a spokesperson said, according to The Sun.
“A 20-year-old man arrested that day on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman, and threats to kill, remains on bail.
“An application has been made to the courts to have his bail extended beyond Saturday 30 April, but the hearing isn’t expected to be until mid-June.
“The suspect will remain on conditional bail until the date of the court hearing.”
