While Greenwood is yet to be charged, many of his team-mates appear to have unfollowed the England international on social media after seeing the images and hearing the clips released by a young woman.

And the Daily Mail report that a number of Greenwood’s team-mates are ‘shocked and appalled’ at what they saw on social media.

United are not unaccustomed to dealing with off-the-field issues given their status as the world’s biggest club but a source admits they’re facing an altogether different situation.

‘Everyone is very shaken up,’ a source told the Daily Mail. This is very different to the normal things they have to deal with.’

United are likely to be without Greenwood for the foreseeable future. After a two-week break the Red Devils are back in action on Friday in an FA Cup against Middlesbrough, with manager Ralf Rangnick due to address the media tomorrow.

Jesse Lingard was blocked from leaving the club on deadline day, with United feeling after the departures of Anthony Martial, Amad Diallo and Donny van de Beek that they were suddenly light in wide areas.

Though Greenwood has not been charged as yet, a police statement made it clear that his bail is pending ‘further investigation’.
