MASON Greenwood has suffered a blow as Man United release their provisional squad numbers list – and he’s NOT on it.

The striker, 21, has been suspended by the Premier League club since January 2022 and not kicked a ball for them since his arrest.

Greenwood was later charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour, before the charges were dropped in February by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

And Utd are expected to make their decision on his future in the coming days.

Greenwood could have his contract terminated, be put back into the first team, loaned out or sold.

It comes after The Sun revealed snaps on Tuesday of Greenwood looking relaxed as he trained on a public pitch.

His dad and coach, Andrew Greenwood, instructed him and cradled the player’s newborn as he ran through shooting drills with pals.

And today the club released provisional squad numbers for the new season.

Football fans are convinced the baller has already made a decision on his football future.

Speculation online is growing with fans suspecting the player will move to the Jamaican national team after he was spotted in the kit.

It comes as a row over Greenwood’s future at the club was sparked.

Manager Erik ten Hag and the majority of the first team have suggested they were open to the idea of bringing the Greenwood back.

But United’s women’s team were understood to have reservations, while sponsors were left concerned about being linked to the footballer.

A source said previously: “All the players believe he deserves a second chance because he’s innocent in the eyes of the law.

“He didn’t have the opportunity to clear his name in court because the charges were dropped, so the players feel like he has been left in limbo.

“They know it will be difficult but they are willing to support him through it, and protect him.

“Some of the younger players came through the academy with him so there’s a loyalty to him.

“They know he’s made mistakes but the lads who’ve spoken to him say he’s grown up a lot in the past 18 months and will come back a lot wiser.”

It is not the first time Greenwood has been spotted training outside of Carrington.

In June he worked on his close control and shooting in a 90-minute session on an £85-an-hour pitch.

It was the first time he had been pictured at a training session since his arrest.

He had grown his hair since he was last pictured — and was not wearing Nike boots after the firm ended their sponsorship deal.

Greenwood joined Utd aged just six and rose through the ranks to land himself a regular spot on the first team.

In 2019, he became the youngest footballer to play for United in the Champions League when he took to the pitch aged 17.

Greenwood has made 129 appearances in total for the Red Devils and netted 35 goals.
