British police made it known in a statement on Saturday, 15th October, 2022.

“Greater Manchester Police are aware of an allegation regarding a 21-year-old man breaching his bail conditions and an arrest has been made on Saturday, 15 October 2022.

“Enquiries are ongoing at this time”, a police spokesman said.

Greenwood was arrested in January, 2022, following rape and assault allegations relating to a young woman, after images and video were posted online.

The 21-year-old football player was also questioned on suspicion of making threats to kill.

Within hours of the allegations surfacing online at the beginning of the year, Greenwood, who has made one appearance for England, was suspended from playing or training with United.

Nike suspended and later terminated its sponsorship deal with Greenwood, while Electronic Arts confirmed his removal from active squads on its FIFA 22 game.

Greenwood is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court on Monday, 17th October, 2022.
