Antony’s abuse case “still ongoing” following latest GMP confirmation



| Last Updated:


The investigation into Manchester United’s Antony relating to allegations of abuse remain ongoing, Greater Manchester Police have confirmed.

Antony has very much underperformed for Manchester United this season following allegations of domestic abuse from his ex-partner during the summer.

Although Antony has not been arrested, he has been questioned multiple times by police in both Manchester and Sao Paulo, with Erik ten Hag‘s winger registering just one goal and one assist so far this season, both against Newport County in the FA Cup.

According to The Athletic, the GMP have confirmed that the investigation into the allegations against Antony remains ongoing. The Brazilian authorities’ investigation against Antony is also still active and has yet to reach a conclusion.

Sources close to the player add that Ten Hag and United have supported Antony since his return to training and have shown an understanding that the ongoing police investigations will affect his performance.

It is further stipulated that Antony has no desire to leave United this summer. He accepts he has a challenge to win back his spot and he wishes to stay to compete for it.

However, this may not be down to him. Other reports have claimed that INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have decided that they are open to offers for Antony, with some expanding by explaining that a fee of around £50 million would see the winger leave Old Trafford.

The club are looking to raise over £150 million in sales this summer as they also intend to clear out Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, and others.
