Mason Greenwood has not featured for Manchester United in over 12 months and the 21-year-old is not looking any closer to making his comeback for the club.
Greenwood was suspended by the club last year after he was arrested by police on the suspicion of a number of crimes, including attempted rape and threats to harm.
Roughly one year after the initial arrest, Greenwood was freed from any wrongdoing and all charges against him were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
Greenwood remains indefinitely suspended by the club but can still be seen listed as a first-team player on the official Manchester United website.
In the latest development, it has been revealed that Greenwood has held a face-to-face meeting with the club as the young winger seeks clarity on his future.
According to The Sun, a source familiar with the situation has claimed that amid the meeting between Greenwood and Old Trafford officials, the club will take their time in completing an internal investigation before any decision is made.
“Mason and his team met with the club to start the process of trying to get to the bottom of exactly what may or may not have happened,” a source is quoted as saying by the publication.
“It is an extremely sensitive situation and the club think it is only fair that Mason is given the opportunity to fully explain himself.
“The club are keen to hear his version of events. Only when they have the full picture, can they start to move things forward.”
It goes without saying that this situation is extremely delicate and needs to be handled with the utmost care by United. Obviously, team-mates and other club affiliates need to be consulted.
Despite being cleared of any wrongdoing, the club must investigate independently and the outcome of that could have a major impact on Greenwood’s career.
As a lifelong Man Utd fan, it was great seeing Greenwood in the side. Unfortunately, following how the police said charges were dropped. Left the impression he was guilty but no one would testify against him. Therefore feel the final say should go to the players both male and female teams, once they are told what happened.
