Manchester United star arrested for violating bail conditions


Mason Greenwood has been arrested on suspicion of breaking bail, nine months after he was first held for allegedly raping and beating a young woman.

After pictures and videos were posted online in January, the Manchester United player was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.

The 21-year-old, who has made one appearance for England, was also questioned on suspicion of making threats to kill.

He has been on bail since the incident and has been suspended from playing or training with Manchester United until further notice.

A police spokesperson said: “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, October 15, 2022.”

“Enquiries are ongoing at this time.”

Mr Greenwood lost his sponsorship deal with Nike following his arrest at the start of the year and was also removed from active squads on Electronic Arts’ Fifa 22 game.
