Mason Greenwood included in Man Utd’s latest Premier League squad list

Mason Greenwood has been included in Manchester United’s latest Premier League squad list after the charges against him were dropped.

Greater Manchester Police announced on Thursday that criminal proceedings against the player have been discontinued.

The England star was charged with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour & assault, allegations relating to one woman.

In a statement, Manchester United confirmed that the club would conduct an internal investigation to ‘determine next steps’, while Greenwood also released a statement.

The player has since been included in United’s updated Premier League squad list for the rest of the 2022/23 campaign. Premier League teams are required to submit their updated squad list after the closure of the January window.

Greenwood’s last game for the Red Devils came against West Ham on January 22 last year. About a week later, on January 30, the footballer was arrested and he has been suspended ever since.

The striker has scored 35 goals in 129 games for the club, as well as providing 12 assists, since making his first-team debut in 2019.

United are now set to carry out their own process and Greenwood will remain suspended from training and games until it is finished, the club confirmed on Thursday.

A United spokesman said: “Manchester United notes the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service that all charges against Mason Greenwood have been dropped.

“The club will now conduct its own process before determining next steps. We will not make any further comment until that process is complete.”

Greenwood also released a short statement, which read: “I am relieved that this matter is now over and I would like to thank my family, loved ones and friends for their support.

“There will be no further comment at this time.”
