Manchester United confirm Mason Greenwood to leave club

Manchester United have confirmed that Mason Greenwood will not continue his career with the club, following an internal investigation into the forward.

Greenwood has not featured for Red Devils since being arrested in January 2022, following his arrest and later charges for attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.


The charges against the 21-year-old were dropped in February, with United having since embarked on an internal investigation. The club have now released a statement, confirming it has been ‘mutually agreed’ that Greenwood will not recommence his career at Old Trafford.

“Manchester United has concluded its internal investigation into the allegations made against Mason Greenwood,” the statement said.

“Our process commenced in February 2023, following all charges against Mason being dropped. Throughout, we have taken into account the wishes, rights and perspective of the alleged victim along with the club’s standards and values, and sought to collate as much information and context as possible. This has required us to proceed with sensitivity and care to obtain evidence not in the public domain, including from those with direct knowledge of the case.

“Based on the evidence available to us, we have concluded that the material posted online did not provide a full picture and that Mason did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged. That said, as Mason publicly acknowledges today, he has made mistakes which he is taking responsibility for.

“All those involved, including Mason, recognise the difficulties with him recommencing his career at Manchester United. It has therefore been mutually agreed that it would be most appropriate for him to do so away from Old Trafford, and we will now work with Mason to achieve that outcome.”
