Manchester United transfer news: Mason Greenwood has been ruled out from Manchester United’s first team picture ever since the allegations of rape and assault came forth.
The charges against him were recently dropped, and United are carrying out an internal investigation to reach their own conclusion. As things stand, they haven’t made a decision surrounding his future yet. But it looks unlikely that the forward will be playing for them at all this season.
Latest Manchester United transfer news: Mason Greenwood offers from Turkey rejected
Key witnesses being withdrawn and new material coming to the forefront have made the possibility of conviction seem minimal. And as a result, the charges against him were dropped and he did not face any punishment.
But his future in football faces a major obstacle. There were offers from Turkey for the 21-year-old recently, but United turned them down as they were carrying out their own investigation. Mason Greenwood intends on playing for them again someday, and is willing to do anything it takes to make it happen.
The first team squad is reportedly divided on the prospect of him returning. Some of them have no issues with it, but others are concerned about it, including the women’s team and their reaction to the matter.
A return to the England national team is also up in the air, with the charges against him. Unless he returns to regular playing time, other forwards are miles ahead in terms of being chosen.
