Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood has been arrested again on suspicion of sexual assault and death threats as police were given a fourth day to question the 20-year-old. The striker was initially arrested on Sunday afternoon on suspicion of rape and assault on a young woman after images and videos were posted online on social media. He was in custody overnight on Monday after Greater Manchester Police (GMP) detectives were given more time to question the player, who they have not formally named as a suspect.

The force said in a statement Tuesday: “Detectives have been granted additional additional time to speak with a man in his 20s who was arrested on suspicion of rape and battery on a woman.

“The suspect was taken into custody on Sunday afternoon after we became aware of images and videos on social media posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.

“He continues to be questioned after the magistrates authorized an extension until tomorrow, Wednesday, February 2.

“Following investigations thus far, he has been re-arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and death threats.”

Within hours of the allegations surfaced on Sunday, Greenwood, regarded as one of English football’s rising stars, was suspended from playing or training with the club until further notice.

Sportswear giant Nike said it had suspended its deal with the player and video game developer EA Sports said he had been removed from active squads in FIFA 22.
