MANCHESTER United star Mason Greenwood will find out TOMORROW if his bail is extended after he was arrested on suspicion of rape.

The England striker, 20, was arrested in January after his alleged 18-year-old victim posted images and videos on social media.

He spent three nights in a police cell and was initially quizzed on suspicion of rape and assault.

He was then rearrested for alleged sexual assault and threats to kill.

The investigation remains ongoing and Greater Manchester Police have applied to the courts to extend his bail.

On Thursday, lawyers for the footballer will appear at Manchester and Salford magistrates’ court in a behind closed doors hearing.
