Manchester United have reportedly ruled out the return of Mason Greenwood for the remainder of the current football season, citing commercial interests as one of the reasons for their decision.
The decision means Mason Greenwood will not be able to participate in training with any of the Manchester United squads.
According to reports by the Mail Online, United officials have shut the door on Greenwood joining the team for training until at least the 2023-24 campaign, with the club’s internal investigation unlikely to be concluded until the summer.
Greenwood, who has been suspended by the club since September 2022, has been under investigation following allegations of attempted rape, assault, and coercive and controlling behaviour.
However, Greater Manchester Police dropped all charges against him last month, leaving the door open for a potential return.
Despite his charges being dropped, the club’s investigation into the matter is still ongoing. This has reportedly led to a divide within the club, with some footballing staff open to his return, while others on the commercial side of the club
