Manchester United will decide striker Mason Greenwood’s future before their opening Premier League game of the season against Wolves on August 14th.
A number of serious charges against Greenwood, including attempted rape and assault, were dropped on 2 February after the Crown Prosecution Service said key witnesses had withdrawn and new material had come to light meaning there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.
At the time, a statement released on 21-year-old Greenwood’s behalf said he was “relieved”, however, United then said they were launching their own investigation.
Greenwood has been unavailable for selection ever since and has not been involved at the club’s Carrington training ground with his United contract running until June 2025.
When asked about the situation at the start of United’s current preseason tour, manager Erik ten Hag said he had given his opinions on the matter but it was for others at the club to decide.
It is now understood that the process is now near its conclusion, with an announcement anticipated at some point ahead of the Wolves game.
