20-year-old Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood was bailed out of prison following rape charges.


Greenwood had spent three nights in custody.

A statement said: "A 20-year-old man arrested (on Sunday 30 January 2022) on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman has been released on bail pending further investigation."

A woman made allegations against Greenwood and posted photos of injuries she says he caused.  The posting was later taken down but not before screenshots were made by others and continued to circulate across social media. 

In a statement, Man United said: "We are aware of images and allegations circulating on social media. We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established. Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind."


Greenwood was suspended indefinitely from Utd hours after the allegations surfaced on social media.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) tweeted: “The club has now confirmed that Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice. MUST fully support the decision of the club in this regard."

A source confirmed Greenwood will still receive his wages while on suspension.

Police have since said Greenwood was also under investigation for "making threats to kill".

Manchester United is set to take part in this month's UEFA Champions League with 16-1 odds.
