Crime scene investigators from Greater Manchester Police were seen parked outside the footballer’s house in Bowdon, Greater Manchester, on Sunday afternoon.

Security staff, thought to have been provided by his club, were present at a second home he owns nearby and they confirmed his parents were inside.

Manchester United also announced he has been suspended indefinitely after the allegations surfaced online.

The Premier League club initially said it did “not condone violence of any kind,” but later suspended the £75,000-a-week star as a police probe was launched.

Last night the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) tweeted: “The club has now confirmed that Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice. MUST fully support the decision of the club in this regard.”

England star Greenwood could see his career put into severe doubt,with his sponsor Nike saying they were “deeply concerned” and would “monitor” the situation.

The images and allegations were reportedly visible on the woman’s Instagram on Sunday morning. The posts have since been deleted from the social media page. In

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “Police were made aware of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.

“An investigation was launched and following enquiries we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.
