Antony allegations may hinder his transfer in the upcoming summer

Manchester United might face hurdles in selling winger Antony for £85 million ($109m) due to ongoing police investigations involving the Brazilian player.

Manchester United view the 24-year-old as a transferable asset since acquiring him from Ajax in a £85m ($109m) deal in 2022. Antony’s underwhelming performances at Old Trafford have put him on the potential transfer list for the upcoming summer window.

However, The Telegraph reports that any potential deal could be jeopardized by ongoing investigations in Brazil and England.

Antony faces accusations of assault from his former girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin. Both Greater Manchester Police and Sao Paulo Civil Police are investigating these claims. Despite Antony’s strong denial of the allegations, the investigations remain ongoing.

In the current season, Antony has appeared in 29 matches across all competitions. However, he has started only 11 of the 22 Premier League games he participated in.

His offensive contribution has been limited, with just one goal and one assist, both recorded in the FA Cup victory against Newport County. Recent reports suggest that Manchester United are willing to offload him at a considerable loss during the upcoming transfer window.

Antony and Manchester United will monitor developments in the ongoing police investigations.

The Telegraph suggests that the club’s ability to sell him could be affected by the outcome of the investigations. Additionally, the future of under-pressure head coach Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford may influence Antony’s prospects at the club beyond the current season.
