As part of the investigation, United will interview Greenwood to determine his version of events and will acquire the aid of specialists to evaluate Greenwood’s state of mind and physical health. So, more likely, if everything goes well, then only United fans will be able to see the number 11 back on the pitch next season. However, nothing can be said with surety about his comeback and it all depends on the investigation.
