Man Utd star Mason Greenwood becoming a dad for first time weeks after attempted rape and assault charges were dropped
MAN United’s Mason Greenwood is due to become a first-time dad.
The suspended player, 21 — who had attempted rape and assault charges against him dropped — recently learned his partner is pregnant.
His family are aware and the couple are “looking forward” to the summer arrival.
Greenwood was arrested in January last year after a woman made claims on social media. Three weeks ago he was cleared of any wrongdoing.
He remains suspended by the club but gets his £75,000-a-week salary. He is contracted until 2025.
The striker wants to return to the first-team squad as soon as possible.
However it is understood some female players would be deeply concerned if senior club officials allowed Greenwood to return.
Natalie Burrell, founder of United Women’s Supporters’ Club, has said she never wants to see Greenwood in a red shirt again.
She said “United need to make a statement and letting him back would be the worst thing they could do.
“I don’t want to see him training, in a kit, or coming out at Old Trafford again. And I’m confident they won’t (let him).”
MARCH 2019: Greenwood makes his debut for United. He has gone on to make 129 appearances, scoring 35 goals.
SEPTEMBER 2020: Wins his first senior England cap as a sub in a 1-0 away win over Iceland, left. Two days later he is withdrawn from the squad for breaching Covid guidelines by leaving the part of the hotel the squad was in.

FEBRUARY 2022: Sponsors including Nike end relationship with him.
