Manchester United star Mason Greenwood has been granted an extension of his bail by police over allegations that he raped and assaulted a young woman earlier this year.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has requested an extension of his bail in Manchester and Salford Magistrates, where it was granted.

The 20-year-old footballer was arrested in January after photos and videos were posted online.

He was also later questioned on suspicion of making murder threats when he spent three nights in cells at a police station in Greater Manchester.

Greenwood was released on parole. This was first extended until mid-June and has now been extended.

However, police did not specify when it would run out after yesterday’s closed court hearing.

A GMP spokesperson said: ‘As the outcome of bail assessments will not affect the progress of investigations, Greater Manchester Police will not provide further updates regarding this case until the suspect has been charged or released without further action.’

Rumors circulating on social media recently suggested that instead of being charged, the striker may not face further police action.

However, the police investigation remains ongoing and Greenwood remains suspended by the Old Trafford club.

Police arrested Greenwood on January 30 after seeing a woman on social media reporting physical assault and sexual threats.

Officers had arrived at Greenwood’s £14,000-a-month mansion in Bowdon, Greater Manchester and were later seen questioning neighbours.

The England international was originally detained on suspicion of raping and assaulting a woman while being roasted by detectives.

While in custody, he was arrested again on charges of assault and threats to kill his alleged victim before being released on bail.

Greenwood, an academy product originally from Bradford, West Yorks, later increased security at his home.

He enlisted two private security guards to patrol the rented house, and an expert installed a home CCTV system that can record up to eight cameras.

The footballer has been suspended from playing or training for Man United until further notice.

Nike suspended and later terminated its sponsorship deal with Greenwood, and Electronic Arts confirmed its removal from active squads on its FIFA 22 game.

Greenwood was seen in public for the first time since his arrest in early April driving a black Mercedes through Cheshire wearing a Cartier balaclava.

He made his only England debut against Iceland in September 2020, but was then sent home for violating Covid guidelines.
