United unchanged on Greenwood following ‘return to training’ claims; He’s not currently in line for a return to training
Despite social media conjecture, Manchester United’s attitude on Mason Greenwood remains unchanged, and the attacker is not expected to return to training anytime soon.
MASON GREENWOOD hasn’t played for Manchester United since a 1-0 win over West Ham United on January 22.
Police detained the 20-year-old forward in February on accusations of sexual assault, rape, and making threats to kill, and he was later freed out for three days.
The Red Devils made the decision to suspend their academy graduate while police continued with their investigation.
Greater Manchester Police are now expected to extend Greenwood’s bail, which is due to expire on April 30.
United unchanged on Greenwood
Rumours began to emerge on Friday that Greenwood was now set to return to first-team training at United.
However, there’s no change in the player’s current situation.
Greenwood was removed from the video game FIFA 22 following his arrest, while EA Sports and United’s sponsor Cadbury decided they will not be using the England international in any of their latest marketing campaigns.
Cadbury said: “Cadbury does not condone violence in any form. Our Partnership is with the club itself and not the individual players.
“However, while these allegations are being investigated, any marketing or products we create with Manchester United will not feature this player. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
United were also forced to issue a statement at the end of March confirming there had been no change in Greenwood’s situation after fans thought he’d ‘reappeared’ on the club’s online squad list.
But the Red Devils made it clear that while Greenwood was removed from the app, his profile had always remained on the official club website.
“There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” a statement published by The Sun read.
“We removed his profile from the club app soon after he was removed from the squad in January.
