Man Utd Star Mason Greenwood Faces Court Bail Hearing Next Week Over Allegations He Raped And Sexually Assaulted Young Woman

Manchester United star Mason Greenwood will have his bail extension application heard at court next week following the allegations he raped and assaulted a young woman earlier this year, MailOnline can reveal.

The police investigation remains on-going and there has now been an application to extend his police bail – which will take place at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court next Wednesday.

The 20-year-old footballer was arrested in January after images and videos were posted online.

He was also later quizzed on suspicion of making threats to kill as he spent three nights in cells at a Greater Manchester police station.

Greenwood was released on conditional bail and this was extended until mid-June.

The hearing on Wednesday will not be held in open court and Greenwood is not expected to attend.

A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said: ‘We can confirm that the application to extend the pre-charge bail will be considered on the 23rd June 2022.’

Rumours circulating on social media recently suggested that rather than being charged the striker might face no further police action but it’s understood no decision has been reached – and he remains suspended by the Old Trafford club . 

Greater Manchester Police arrested Greenwood on 30 January after seeing a woman reporting claims of physical violence and sexual threats on social media.

Officers had arrived at Greenwood’s £14,000-a-month mansion in Bowdon, Greater Manchester and were later seen questioning neighbours.

The England international was originally held on suspicion of raping and attacking a woman as he was grilled by detectives.

While in custody, he was re-arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill his alleged victim before he was released on bail.

Greenwood, an academy product originally from Bradford, West Yorks, later beefed up security at his home.

He brought in two private security guards to patrol the rented house and an expert installed a home CCTV system capable of recording from up to eight cameras.

The footballer was suspended from playing or training with Man United until further notice.

Nike suspended its sponsorship deal with Greenwood, and later terminated it, and Electronic Arts confirmed his removal from active squads on its Fifa 22 game.

Greenwood was spotted in public for the first time since his arrest in early April, driving a black Mercedes around Cheshire while wearing a Cartier balaclava.

He made his only appearance for England debut against Iceland in September 2020 but was then sent home for breaching Covid guidelines.

Greenwood, who has scored 22 goals in 83 appearances for United, has not played for his country since.

His last appearance for the club came in a 1-0 win against West Ham on 22 January.
