Mason Greenwood has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of breaching his bail conditions.

Greenwood, 21, was bailed after he was arrested on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill in January.

The Sun reported on Saturday that the Manchester United striker – who is currently suspended by the club – has been arrested on suspicion of contacting his alleged victim.

Police are said to have attended the footballer’s house in Greater Manchester on Saturday.

The striker has been on bail since February 2.

Greenwood remains suspended by United, however, he is still earning his salary, which is reported to be in the region of £75,000 a week, pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings.
