Manchester United star Antony has been the center of attention following allegations of physical assault. The 23-year-old was accused of physical assault by ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin. Two other women also came forward with fresh accusations. However, the player has actively denied any participation in the allegations and has strived to prove his innocence. On Thursday, Antony was spotted heading into Manchester Police Station for questioning.
It is understood that the Brazilian volunteered himself for questioning. He has also agreed to submit his mobile for examination as per reports. The player was seen heading into the station at 4 p.m. and left after a total of five hours of questioning. Antony is currently on a leave of absence, granted by Manchester United.
The player also spoke to the police during his time in Brazil. He also gave a ‘teary’ interview, denying any involvement in the same after he was left out of the Brazil squad. While Gabriela Cavallin claims that Antony headbutted and injured her breast implant, another woman has reportedly withdrawn her complaint.
Manchester United targets former Arsenal star as Antony’s replacement
With Antony’s current situation and the suspension of Jadon Sancho creating a lack of firepower upfront, the Red Devils have lost both wingers. As per reports, Erik ten Hag has identified a former Arsenal player as the potential replacement for their positions.
Serge Gnabry, current Bayern Munich forward, is reportedly being eyed by Manchester United. It is likely that the Red Devils make a move for the player in the winter transfer window. Gnabry has had a relatively silent start to the season. However, the player scored in Bayern’s 4-3 victory against United in the Champions League. Gnabry is yet to register a goal contribution in the Bundesliga.
Gnabry has 82 goals in 223 appearances for Bayern and 22 goals in almost double the games for Die Mannschaft. Gnabry’s contact with Bayern runs until 2026. There were also reports that the club was willing to sell the player in spite of a contract extension. Unless United comes up with a convincing offer, it is unlikely that Gnabry will leave the German Champions.
