Antony sends 13-word message to Man United fans amid Ligue 1 interest



| Last Updated:


Antony has sent a message to Manchester United fans ahead of the club’s FA Cup final clash against Manchester City this weekend.

Antony, 24, and his United teammates will be preparing for their most important game of the season this weekend.

The FA Cup final does not only present Erik ten Hag’s side with a chance to end a disappointing campaign with silverware but also a pathway into the Europa League after finishing outside of European spots for the first time since 2013/14.

Ten Hag will have various decisions to make regarding his starting team for the match against Pep Guardiola’s men. Antony is unlikely to be chosen to start.

The Brazilian winger has been on the bench in recent weeks after Amad Diallo forced his way into the team. He scored and assisted against Newcastle while having solid performances against Arsenal and Brighton.

Despite this, the 24-year-old is still keen to make an impact and help United win the final under difficult circumstances.

Antony took to Instagram on Wednesday evening and posted an event reminder on his story, with a timer counting down to kick-off for the Wembley bout.

He also wrote, “Wearing the United jersey motivates me! And Saturday we’re going after another title!!”

It has been a difficult time in Red for the former Ajax winger over the last two seasons, but a major contribution in the final – like in the quarter-final win over Liverpool, where he scored a late equaliser to take the game into extra time – could be all he needs to turn his fortunes around.

However, with INEOS looking to generate funds in the summer transfer window, many players are being considered as potential players to sell, including Antony.

Recent information from the Muppetiers states that United received a minor enquiry about the Brazilian from an unnamed Ligue 1 club.

The future of many players at Old Trafford will likely become clearer after the FA Cup final.
