Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has been cleared of all charges by Greater Manchester Police, following a year-long investigation.

The highly-regarded 21-year-old, who has been a standout performer for the Red Devils since breaking into the first team, was charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault, relating to allegations from the same individual.

However, after a thorough examination of the evidence, GMP has now confirmed that all charges against Greenwood have been dropped, allowing the player to focus fully on his football career once again.

Chief Superintendent Michaela Kerr, GMP’s Head of Public Protection, said: “Given the significant media coverage of this case, it is only fair that we share the news that the 21-year-old man, who had been arrested and charged in connection with an investigation opened in January 2022, no longer faces criminal proceedings in relation to this.

“The investigation team has remained in regular contact with the legal team, providing any updates of note, and so understand the rationale for the discontinuation of proceedings at this stage, and that this decision has not been taken lightly.

“I would, however, like to use this opportunity to reiterate GMP’s commitment to investigating allegations of violence against women and girls and supporting those affected, regardless of their circumstances, throughout what can be a hard and upsetting time for them. An ever increasing number of officers are receiving specialist training and the force is more consistently utilising tools, available via the criminal justice system, to keep people safe and care for victims”
