The Manchester United and England striker remains suspended indefinitely as the police have investigated allegations of “domestic abuse” and “sexual assault”, which came to light after shocking social media stories were posted on the account of one-time girlfriend Harriet Robson at the end of January.

Greenwood was arrested, and eventually released on bail, but not before further charges were levelled against him based “on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill”.

On Friday, talk started to do the rounds on social media suggesting that the youngster could soon be set to return to training with United, but these rumours have been quickly refuted by reliable sources.

Speaking to The Sun, a source claimed: “He’s still on bail but things are at an advanced stage. The police and CPS are currently discussing if there is a case or not to bring against him. There comes a point where a decision has to be made and things have reached that point.”

The 20-year-old’s bail will expire on 30 April, but it could be extended. Greenwood has not spoken publicly since the story broke, but he was recently pictured for the first time since he was arrested, while a video has now emerged showing him being taunted by a ‘fan’.

A video shows a man seemingly shouting comments such as “quarantine” and “sh***y a**e” at Greenwood, who is is clearly exasperated by the interaction, and seemingly swipes his hand for the man to leave him alone.

United have reaffirmed their “strong condemnation” of violence after he was arrested, although the club are still said to be paying his full salary (reported to be £75,000-a-week) as the police investigation continues.

Recently, though, there have been some social media debate over the fact that his profile was still visible on the club’s website, but this month United have reiterated that Greenwood’s status at the club remains unchanged.

“There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” the club said.

“We removed his profile from the club app soon after he was removed from the squad in January. This was in order to remove Mason from interactive elements of the app, such as team predictions etc.

“However, his profile was never removed from the website as he remains a Manchester United player, albeit not currently part of the squad while the legal process unfolds.”

Since the story broke, the forward has missed Man United’s embarrassing FA Cup penalty shootout defeat to Middlesbrough, as well as nine English Premier League games and two Champions League fixtures.

United suffered a shock loss to Everton on Saturday as Greenwood’s absence continues to extend beyond double figures. With just seven more league matches remaining for the Red Devils, it’s certain that the striker will not feature again this season, with his career left in disarray.

Greenwood has not spoken publicly since the story broke, while there has also been no word from his legal representatives

Once an active user of Instagram, with 2.8million followers to his name, the youngster has not made a post since 25 January.
