New details of Man United's Mason Greenwood investigation emerge
| Last updated
Mason Greenwood is still under investigation by Manchester United and the process is expected to continue for a few months, denying him a return to the first-team.
Earlier this month, Greenwood had charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against him dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service.
It was announced a statement that the scheduled trial in November was not going ahead due to key witnesses withdrawing their involvement in the case and new material coming to light.
Greenwood thanked family and friends for the support, while United confirmed the 21-year-old was still under suspension and an internal investigation would take place despite no criminal prosecution.
Although he is still being paid £100,000-a-week, Greenwood has not returned to training in any capacity and there has been no specific timeline given as to when the investigation would be completed.
However the Daily Star say it is likely to continue for "several more months". That means it is extremely unlikely he will play for the club before the end of the 2022/23 season, which finishes on May 28.
There's no rush on United's part to make a decision but they are set to interview Greenwood to get his version of events, with the process also featuring a mental and physical evaluation.
Contracted until 2025, the England international has not played a game of football since January 22 and it's been reported that United's players have 'made their feelings clear' regarding a potential comeback for Greenwood.
He has been dropped by sponsors Nike, who have reiterated he is "no longer a Nike athlete" after he added their Instagram handle to his bio.
