In a statement on Wednesday, Greater Manchester Police said: “A 20-year-old man arrested on Sunday January 30 2022 on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman has been released on bail pending further investigation.”

Within hours of the allegations appearing on Sunday, the player was suspended from playing or training with the Premier League club until further notice.

The forward, from Bradford, made his debut in 2019 and has since made 129 appearances for Manchester United.

He made his senior England debut in 2020.
