He was arrested again on Saturday for allegedly breaching his bail.
Prosecutors said the charges all related to the same female complainant. Mr. Greenwood is due at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
The 21-year-old, who has made one appearance for the senior England men’s team, has not played or trained with Manchester United since his arrest.
