It is a week since the news emerged that charges against Mason Greenwood had been dropped. Sky News reported the Crown Prosecution Service will no longer pursue the case against him.
This has led to questions over whether he will resume his career at Manchester United.
For the time being, Greenwood remains suspended by the club, it was confirmed via a statement. United have launched their own internal investigation into the circumstances which led to the player’s arrest a year ago.
If Greenwood was to return for United in the future, he would find a lot has changed at Old Trafford, on and off the pitch.

Last time Greenwood played for Manchester United
The last time Mason Greenwood played for Manchester United was in 2022 on January 22. This was a 1-0 win over West Ham in the Premier League.
Greenwood was part of the starting line-up selected by interim manager at the time, Ralf Rangnick.
Rangnick has since left, replaced by Erik ten Hag, while a few players have followed out the door too.
Cristiano Ronaldo lined up in attack, he left United in November, while Alex Telles was sent out on loan to Sevilla at the start of the season.
A look at the XI below shows how United have changed over the past 12 months, with other players simply being moved aside for better options.
This includes Anthony Elanga, Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire, who have each lost their places in United’s regular line-up when everybody is fit.
United went on to win this game 1-0 with Marcus Rashford coming off the bench to score the injury-time winner.
Greenwood was substituted for Anthony Martial, in the Frenchman’s final game before he clinched a loan move to Sevilla.
News broke of Greenwood’s arrest a week later. He has not played for Manchester United since, and may never do so again.
The striker is still listed as a first team player on the club’s official website, and is under contract until 2025.
