MANCHESTER United stars do not want Mason Greenwood in the dressing room this season — because they fear it will disrupt their progress.
The striker, 21, has been told he no longer faces charges of attempted rape, ABH and coercive and controlling behaviour.
United bosses are still investigating his behaviour after images and audio were posted online by his alleged victim.
While that continues, Greenwood is suspended on £100,000-a-week pay and not eligible to train or play.
He last played in January 2022.
A source said: “The players are open to him returning to the team but the scrutiny could be massively distracting.
“The dressing room is the happiest it has been for ages and no one wants to rock the boat.”
Greenwood last played for United in January 2022 and has a contract with the club until 2025.
Sponsors of United have refused to comment on whether they would like to see Greenwood sacked.
