Manchester United have debunked reports the club have taken a decision on Mason Greenwood, MySportDab reports.
Mason Greenwood was axed off Manchester United squad since January 2022 after he was arrested by British authorities for alleged attempted rape, sexual assault, and coercive behavior.
The 21-year-old battled for his innocence in court and was granted bail before being rearrested, and granted bail again.
While facing charges of the alleged rape saga, United were still paying Mason Greenwood his weekly £70,000 wage.
Earlier this year, all charges against him were dropped by the Crown Prosecuting Service but Mason Greenwood was still banned from Manchester United as the club wanted to ascertain the facts of the rape saga before bringing him back to the squad.
As the 2023/24 Premier League season gets underway, there were reports Mason Greenwood will be back to action with Manchester United.
He was spotted on solo and individual training sessions which further sparks rumors he is closing in on returning to Manchester United.
Now, a club statement released on Manchester United official website has confirmed the club is yet to take a decision on Mason Greenwood but have concluded investigations into the rape saga.
“Contrary to media speculation, that decision has not yet been made and is currently the subject of intensive internal deliberation. Responsibility ultimately rests with the Chief Executive Officer.
“Once made, the decision will be communicated and explained to the club’s internal and external stakeholders,” an extract of the club statement reads.
Before his arrest and prosecution, Greenwood made 129 appearances for Manchester United in all competitions, scoring 35 goals with 12 assists.
