Mason Greenwood adds Manchester United and Nike to Instagram bio after charges dropped
| Last updated
Mason Greenwood has made a number of changes to his Instagram page days after charges against him were dropped.
Greenwood, who hasn't played since January 2022, had charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against him dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service on Thursday after key witnesses withdrew themselves in the case before the scheduled trial in November.
He has not returned to Manchester United training and remains suspended by the club, who have said they will conduct an internal investigation before making a decision.
Greenwood issued his own statement after word from the CPS came out and thanked family, friends and loved ones.
He added that no further comment would be made but the England international has recently deleted more than 100 pictures from his Instagram.
Only nine remain and all are of him in United colours. Although he does not have a display picture, his bio on the social media site now reads, "@manchesterunited @nikefootball".
It's been reported that United's players have 'made their feelings clear' over Greenwood returning to the fold and believe it could prove to be unwanted distraction in what is shaping up to be a productive first season under new manager Erik ten Hag.
A source told The Sun: "The players are open to him returning to the team but the scrutiny could be massively distracting.
"The dressing room is the happiest it has been for ages and no one wants to rock the boat."
Meanwhile, The Guardian say the club's staff are split as to whether Greenwood should be allowed to resume his career with United.
The treatment from rival fans at away games is likely to be an issue and there is talk that the 21-year-old would be open to moving to China to continue playing.
