Man United confirm that supporters can exchange Mason Greenwood shirts for free

Manchester United will allow fans to trade in their Mason Greenwood shirts following the 20-year-old’s arrest on Sunday.

Greenwood spent three days in custody before being released on bail.

Following the allegations, Manchester United suspended him from playing or training with them. His shirt was also removed from the club’s store.

Fans who had purchased a £79.95 shirt already wanted to be able to return following the news.

A club spokesperson told the Daily Mail fans can trade their Mason Greenwood shirts in for one with another player’s name on it.

Mason Greenwood arrested after video released on social media

The 20-year-old striker was first arrested after his ex-girlfriend, Harriet Robson, made a series of social media posts.

The posts showed injuries that she claims the United footballer inflicted. One image shows her busted and bleeding lip. Others show bruising to her face and body.

Robson also posted an audio clip from October 2021 in which listeners can hear an argument between a man and a woman. The man appears to want sexual intercourse while the woman does not. Despite her protestations, the man insists on proceeding with the act.

Police took Greenwood into custody on Sunday. He remained there for three days following further charges of sexual assault and threats to kill.

Authorities granted Greenwood bail pending further investigation.
