MANCHESTER United Women’s team don’t want Mason Greenwood to return to their training ground, sources say.

The striker had attempted rape charges against him dropped earlier this month but the club’s female stars have told how they are “disturbed” by him.

Greenwood, 21, hasn’t played for Man United since his arrest in January 2022.

All charges against the footballer, including attempted rape, actual bodily harm and coercive or controlling behaviour, were withdrawn by the Crown Prosecution Service earlier this month.

It came after 12 witnesses, including the woman at the centre of the allegations, refused to cooperate.

He had been charged after videos emerged of a woman with bruises to her body and blood dripping from her mouth.

It’s thought he will remain suspended until the end of the 2022/23 Premier League season while the club carry out an internal probe.

But now female players have revealed they would be unhappy to see him return to the men’s and women’s shared training base, reports The Times.

And according The Athletic, “the feeling is strong” amongst the team that he should be let go.

Meanwhile female staff at the ground have also said they would object to his return.

Greenwood, who earns around £100,000 a week and is contracted until 2025, is still unable to play for United or train while the Red Devils carry out an internal probe.

This is said to involve interviews to get his version of events and checks on his physical and mental health.

Manager Erik Ten Hag hopes this process will be complete before the summer but it cannot be confirmed, it is understood.

Prior to his arrest, Greenwood was valued at around £50million and regarded as one of European football’s hottest young talents.

Fans are also said to be uncertain about his return.

Greenwood, who was dropped from a multi-million pound boot deal by Nike following his arrest, has made 129 appearances for United, scoring 35 goals and winning one England cap.
