Manchester United and England striker Mason Greenwood has been arrested by police after allegedly breaching his bail conditions.
Greenwood, 21, has not played for United since January after being bailed following his arrest on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill.
Sources at the club confirmed his arrest on Saturday morning after allegations that he has breached the conditions of his bail by contacting the alleged victim.
United will, however, not making any comment on the matter while the police continue with their investigation.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said in a statement : “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 15 October 2022. Enquiries are ongoing at this time.”
Greenwood, who was capped by England in August 2020, is now being held for questioning after being arrested at his Cheshire home.
The 21-year-old was suspended by United after cops launched their investigation into the initial complaint, which was sparked by a social media post making serious allegations.
Greenwood was released on bail on February 2 and has been awaiting his fate ever since.
The Bradford-born forward joined the club’s youth academy at the age of six and was just 17 when he made his first-team debut.
