Manchester United have released a statement on Mason Greenwood but declined to say whether the striker will return to the Premier League club.
The 21-year-old has had all charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against him dropped.
He was arrested in late January 2022 when images and videos were posted on social media, while he was also questioned on suspicion of death threats.
Greenwood, who is contracted to United until 2025, was subsequently suspended from playing or training by the Premier League club.
The last of his 129 appearances for the club came in a 1-0 win over West Ham on January 22, 2022.
Greenwood had his bail – which was originally set to expire in April – extended until mid-June 2022.
He was later charged with a provisional trial date set for November 2023.
However, the Crown Prosecution Service on Thursday dropped the charges against him.
Chief Superintendent Michaela Kerr, Greater Manchester Police Public Protection Officer, said: “Given the extensive media coverage of this case, it is only fair that we share the news that the man in 21, who was arrested and charged in connection with an investigation opened in January 2022, is no longer facing criminal charges in this regard.
“The investigation team has remained in regular contact with the legal team, providing all important updates, and thus understands the rationale for discontinuing the prosecution at this stage, and that this decision has not been taken lightly.
“Despite the media and public interest in this case, we have decided not to comment on it in more detail.
“I would, however, like to take this opportunity to reiterate GMP’s commitment to investigating allegations of violence against women and girls and to supporting those affected, regardless of their circumstances, throughout what can be a difficult and upsetting time for them.
“An ever-increasing number of officers are receiving specialized training and the force is more consistently using tools, available through the criminal justice system, to keep people safe and care for victims.
“If you think you are or might be a victim, please don’t let this case discourage you from seeking help.”
In a statement, Man United said: “Manchester United take note of the Crown Prosecution Service’s decision that all charges against Mason Greenwood have been dropped.
“The club will now conduct its own process before determining the next steps. We will not comment further until this process is complete. »
United suspended Greenwood following the allegations, while he was also removed from FIFA 22 and Nike terminated his sponsorship deal.
His current status, now that the charges have been dropped, has yet to be revealed.
In April 2022, United were forced to deny claims that Greenwood would return due to the visibility of his profile on their website.
“There has been no change in Mason’s status,” the club said.
“We removed his profile from the club app shortly after he retired from the squad in January.
“This was to remove Mason from interactive elements of the app such as team predictions etc.
“However, his profile has never been removed from the website as he remains a Manchester United player, although he is not currently part of the squad while the legal proceedings unfold.”
Greenwood came through the Man United academy and has scored 35 goals in 129 games since his debut in 2019.
