The Mason Greenwood situation is entering its final stages and Manchester United staff members could resign if the forward returns.

Greenwood has been suspended from the club since January 2022 after photos and videos alleging he had domestically abused his partner surfaced on social media.

Although he was arrested and a case built against him by the Crown Prosecution Service, this case was ultimately dropped due to key witnesses not stepping forwards

Following on from that, United have undergone an investigation looking into the situation, and United have explained that they are in the ‘final stages’ of a decision.

Meanwhile, The Athletic revealed that it was originally planned for the club to announce the 21-year-old’s return on August 4, however, that confirmation never came.

It has since been written by the same publication that staff within the club are expecting an announcement on Greenwood’s future before the end of this month.

The academy graduate has been training individually away from Carrington with the permission of the club whilst the investigation has been ongoing.

However, his potential return would not only cause issue within the fanbase but also those who work at the club.

The aforementioned report says that sources close to the club have stated that senior Manchester United executives held multiple intense meetings with staff after reports emerged that some employees feel ashamed by the club’s decision.

Some staff members have discussed resigning in the event United continue to pursue the plan laid out by CEO Richard Arnold, while others have considered coordinated action, with some staff even exploring a strike.

It was added that ‘crisis meetings’ involved executives seeking to justify a return for Greenwood to their staff, while also claiming no final decision had been made, as they did in their public statement.

However, many staff were left with the impression that the plan to bring the forward back into the club remains.
