Manchester United player, Mason Greenwood has been charged with attempted rape, controlling behaviour and assault, British prosecutors says.

According to Reuters, the 21-year-old was arrested in January after social media images and videos were posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.

“The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Mason Greenwood, 21, with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” prosecutor Janet Potter said in a statement.

The footballer is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court on Monday.

Greenwood nor his representatives are yet to comment on any of the allegations against him.
