Daily Star are reporting that his new attack dog has its kennel by the side of the player’s red-brick as two security cameras are also fitted to monitor the six-bed, £14,000-a-month rented home in Cheshire round the clock.

It was gathered that such protection dogs purchased by the footballer cost between £10,000 and £25,000 and are usually Belgian or German Shepherds, Dobermans or giant Cane Corsos.

Two firms in the UK– Chaperone K9 and Elite Protection Dogs – use animals from military or police backgrounds to supply stars.

It is not known which company supplied £75,000-a-week striker Greenwood’s pooch, SunSport reports.

How Greenwood’s ordeal blocked Lingard’s transfer

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has shed more light on why Jesse Lingard was blocked from leaving the club in the January transfer window.

Rangnick, in a press conference on Thursday, February 3, said Mason Greenwood’s arrest played a factor in the club’s decision to ultimately keep Lingard.

Greenwood, who was recently released on bail, was recently arrested and quizzed by police on suspicion of a number of felonies including assault and threats to kill.

His arrest, which made worldwide headlines, came at a time when United were on the verge of allowing Lingard to leave on loan, with Newcastle his most likely destination.

Rangnick considers changing Ronaldo’s position

Sports Brief earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo is being considered for a different role in the Manchester United team as manager Ralf Ragnick considers switching up his tactics for the remaining part of the season.

United reduced the depth of their squad in the January transfer window with the Old Trafford club selling off Amad Diallo to Rangers while Anthony Martial joined Sevilla on loan.

Ronaldo is now being considered by manager Ralf Ragnick to fill up the void on the wings.
