The images appeared to show the woman bloodied and bruised and the audio included a voice recording of a conversation between a man and a woman, dated October last year, which purportedly chronicled the woman being attacked.

Greenwood, who earns £75,000-a-week, has been suspended by Manchester United until further notice.

Paul Pogba is following Kurt Zouma, Romelu Lukaku, Alexandre Lacazette, Mario Balotelli and Jadon Sancho among the 157 people he is following, but the United youngster is not among them this morning.

Similarly, Marcus Rashford boasts Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and on-loan Anthony Martial in his list of the 171 he is following, but not Greenwood.

However, the majority of United’s squad are still following the England international 24 hours after his arrest.
