Mason Greenwood has been pictured wearing a balaclava in the first images of the Manchester United player since his arrest in January.

The 20-year-old forward was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault on January 30, before being further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and making threats to kill two days later on February 1.

He was pictured for the first time since his arrest on Thursday and was seen wearing a balaclava as he drove his car in the centre of Altrincham with friends.

Greenwood remains on bail, but it is currently set to expire on April 30, although it could be extended further.

United immediately suspended Greenwood following his arrest, but are contractually obliged to continue to pay his £75,000-per-week wages.

The club recently had to insist that the former England international remains suspended after fans were able to access his player profile on their official club website.

Having been suspended, Greenwood has not played for the club since their 1-0 home win over West Ham United on January 22.

Greenwood is currently contracted with the club until the summer of 2025, having signed a contract extension in February last year, with the club also holding the option of a further year.

In addition to his suspension by United, Greenwood was also released from his contract with sportswear brand Nike and EA Sports removed him from their FIFA series of video games.

EA Sports confirmed his removal in a statement which reads: "Mason Greenwood has been removed from active squads in FIFA 22 and has also been suspended from appearing in FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) packs and Ultimate Draft."

Greenwood is a product of the United academy, having joined the club at the age of six, and made his senior debut as a 17-year-old in March 2019.

He has since gone on to accumulate 129 appearances, scoring 35 goals for the club, including five in 18 appearances this season.
