Manchester United have confirmed that Mason Greenwood will leave the club ahead of the 2023/24 season under Erik ten Hag.

Mason Greenwood has been suspended from the Manchester United squad since January 2022, after photos and videos alleging domestic abuse surfaced on social media.

Much has been made of his future since regarding if he will ever play for Erik ten Hag. He was arrested twice on the charges since, and although a criminal case was being built against him, ultimately the Crown Prosecution Service dropped it.

After this, the club themselves opened their own internal investigation, with Greenwood continuing to be suspended during this process. News last week claimed that United were set to reintroduce the player into their squad, but after backlash from fans, this position has now changed.

In a full statement, Manchester United said: “Manchester United has concluded its internal investigation into the allegations made against Mason Greenwood.

“Our process commenced in February 2023, following all charges against Mason being dropped. Throughout, we have taken into account the wishes, rights and perspective of the alleged victim along with the club’s standards and values, and sought to collate as much information and context as possible. This has required us to proceed with sensitivity and care to obtain evidence not in the public domain, including from those with direct knowledge of the case.

“Based on the evidence available to us, we have concluded that the material posted online did not provide a full picture and that Mason did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged. That said, as Mason publicly acknowledges today, he has made mistakes which he is taking responsibility for.

“All those involved, including Mason, recognise the difficulties with him recommencing his career at Manchester United. It has therefore been mutually agreed that it would be most appropriate for him to do so away from Old Trafford, and we will now work with Mason to achieve that outcome.”
