Greater Manchester Police have requested a bail extension as they “continue to investigate a report”, which led to the arrest of Manchester United footballer Mason Greenwood.
The 20-year-old was arrested on Sunday 30 January on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman, and threats to kill and remains on bail, police said.
In a statement, Greater Manchester Police added: “An application has been made to the courts to have his bail extended beyond Saturday 30 April, but the hearing isn’t expected to be until mid-June.
“The suspect will remain on conditional bail until the date of the court hearing.
“Any update on the outcome of that hearing – or news before then – will be issued proactively by GMP press office.”
The report made to police was in relation to “online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence”.
The striker, from Bradford, made his debut in 2019 and has since made 129 appearances for Manchester United. He made his senior England debut in 2020.
He was suspended from playing or training with the club following the allegations.
