Mason Greenwood’s Bail Extended
The statement released says: “Following a hearing yesterday (Thursday 23 June 2022), a 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill on Sunday 30 January 2022 remains on bail.”
It also said: “As the outcome of bail reviews does not impact the progression of investigations. Greater Manchester Police will not be providing any further updates in relation to this case until the suspect is charged or released facing no further action.”
Manchester United have twice denied rumours, originating online, that they brought him back. In April, a club spokesperson explained why his profile remains on the club’s website. “There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status.”
The spokesperson 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. However, his profile was never removed from the website as he is still a Manchester United player.
