Greenwood has been granted bail after being charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault

He appeared at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Monday and was remanded in custody.
A bail application was then held in private at Manchester’s
Minshull Street Crown Court on Wednesday, with a spokesperson for the court saying that bail had been granted, with conditions not to contact witnesses, including the complainant, and to reside at an address on Bow Green Road in Bowdon.
Greenwood did not appear for the short hearing.
The player was first held in January over allegations relating to a young woman after images and videos were posted online.
He had been on bail since but was arrested in the Trafford area on Saturday for an alleged breach of conditions.
The controlling and coercive behaviour relates to a period between November 2018 and October this year, where he is alleged to have made threatening and derogatory comments towards the complainant, as well as accessing and monitoring her social media accounts.

Greenwood was suspended from playing and training with United

Nike have confirmed they have ended their partnership with Greenwood

The charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm is dated December 2021.
He is due to appear at court again on November 21.
Manchester United suspended Greenwood following the allegations, while he was also removed from FIFA 22 and Nike terminated his sponsorship deal.
A statement from the club on Saturday said: “Manchester United notes that criminal charges have been brought against Mason Greenwood by the Crown Prosecution Service.
“He remains suspended by the club, pending the outcome of the judicial process.”
