Manchester United have announced Mason Greenwood will not play for the club again.

A club statement saw Manchester United acknowledge that it is simply not possible for Mason Greenwood to continue his career at the club.

This came amid a statement from Greenwood himself, maintaining his innocence, and a long letter from chief executive Richard Arnold on the investigation process.

United will work with Greenwood to find a solution for him to continue his career elsewhere.

Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker has welcomed Manchester United’s decision to begin cutting ties with Greenwood.

He wrote on Twitter X: “Inevitable and right decision on an untenable situation.”

However, for now, Mason Greenwood remains under contract to the club.

BBC Sport’s Simon Stone reports: “Mason Greenwood remains on full pay. All options remain open re future but he is not coming back to train at Man Utd and no expectation of him playing for club again post loan/sale.”

Mason Greenwood salary

Mason Greenwood signed a contract extension in February 2021. The Mail reports he earns £75,000 per week.

He is under contract until June 2025, while United do have an option to extend this by an extra year.

Greenwood is still assigned the Manchester United number 11 shirt, although this is now expected to become vacant in due course.
