Mason Greenwood beefs up security at his home after being released on bail
Mason Greenwood has tightened security at his £14,000-a-month Cheshire mansion after he was released on bail.
The Manchester United striker, arrested on suspicion of rape, sexual assault, death threats and assault, was released yesterday after spending three nights in jail.
And Greenwood, 20, brought in two private security guards to patrol the rented house, while an expert installed a home CCTV system.
The England international was grilled by detectives, who were granted extra time to speak to him, after he was initially arrested on suspicion of rape and assault when disturbing sights and sounds circulated on social media alleging that he had attacked an 18-year-old student. On Tuesday, he was arrested again while in police custody on suspicion of sexual assault and death threats against his alleged victim.
Police have now released him on bail “pending further investigation”.
Greenwood provided legal assistance and would have done so independently of United. He is banned from the club’s training complex and Old Trafford, although he continues to collect his £75,000-a-week salary.
Greenwood, an academy product from Bradford, has disappeared from United’s online merchandise store and FIFA ’22 video game releases. Nike suspended its sponsorship deal while one of United’s official partners, Cadbury, said it would not use it in any marketing products “while these allegations are investigated”.
