Mason Greenwood spotted training as Man Utd to make decision on striker’s future | The Sun
PICTURES of Mason Greenwood at a training session have emerged as his future at Manchester United remains uncertain.
The 21-year-old striker was seen doing ball drills and shooting practicewith pals at a public training ground.
His dad was also spotted at the training session.
Greenwood, who became a father last month, has been suspended on full pay, around £75,000 a week, since his arrest in January 2022.
He was charged last October with attempted rape, sexual assault and controlling behaviour, and a trial set for this November.
Talks over the player’s future continue following the conclusion of a five-month club probe into his arrest.

Sources say senior players at Manchester United believe Greenwood has been left in “limbo” after charges including attempted rape were withdrawn.
But a source said: “All the players believe he deserves a second chance because he’s innocent in the eyes of the law.
"He didn’t have the opportunity to clear his name in court because the charges were dropped, so the players feel like he has been left in limbo.
“They know it will be difficult but they are willing to support him through it, and protect him.

“Some of the younger players came through the academy with him so there’s a loyalty to him.
“They know he’s made mistakes but the lads who’ve spoken to him say he’s grown up a lot in the past 18 months and will come back a lot wiser.”
It is not the first time Greenwood has been spotted training outside of Carrington.
In June he worked on his close control and shooting in a 90-minute session on an £85-an-hour pitch.
It was the first time he had been pictured at a training session since his arrest.
He had grown his hair since he was last pictured — and was not wearing Nike boots after the firm ended their sponsorship deal.
