Manchester United footballer Mason Greenwood has been charged with three offences including attempted rape.
The 21-year-old faces charges of engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm following an investigation by Greater Manchester Police.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said specialist rape prosecutors had been assigned to the case.
All three charges relate to the same complainant, the CPS confirmed.
Greenwood, who has not played for Manchester United since his initial arrest earlier this year, will appear in court for the first time on Monday, October 17.
He had been on bail since then, but was arrested in the Trafford area on Saturday for an alleged breach of conditions.
Janet Potter, the deputy chief crown prosecutor for CPS North West, said: “The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Mason Greenwood, 21, with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
“Specialist rape prosecutors from CPS North West’s complex casework unit authorised the charges following a review of a file of evidence received from Greater Manchester Police.
“The defendant’s first court appearance will take place on October 17 at Greater Manchester Magistrates’ Court.
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against the defendant are active and that he has a right to a fair trial.
“It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice those proceedings.”
