Manchester United are considering sending Mason Greenwood out on loan for next campaign, according to reports.
The 21-year-old forward has not played for the Red Devils since January last year after he was arrested and charged with rape, controlling behaviour and assault.
All charges against Greenwood were dropped in February, with the Crown Prosecution Service saying that ‘in this case a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light meant there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction’.

Man United went on to announce it would ‘conduct its own process before determining next steps’ in relation to Greenwood’s future at the club.
According to MailOnline, United’s internal investigation is ongoing but they are considering allowing Greenwood to leave the club on loan for next season.
The report claims that a move to another Premier League club is unlikely, while three possible destinations are Italy, Spain and Turkey.
Greenwood still has two years left on his £75,000-a-week contract with United and it’s believed the forward has indicated his desire to return to the first-team squad.
But, United made the decision in March that Greenwood would not be allowed back into the team until this summer at the earliest.
A representative of Greenwood told The Athletic in March: ‘Mason is 21, he has been cleared and should be allowed the opportunity to rebuild and move forward with his young life.’
