Antony police investigations threaten Man Utd hopes to sell £85m flop (Details)

The ongoing police investigations surrounding Manchester United winger Antony could complicate any potential moves the club might make to sell the Brazil international this summer.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) and Sao Paulo Civil Police are still investigating assault allegations against Antony made by his former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin, allegations that Antony vehemently denies.

While Antony is a player United are open to selling this summer, the club is not actively looking to push the £85.5 million winger out at this stage. However, this stance could change depending on the future of manager Erik ten Hag, who pushed for Antony’s arrival from Ajax in September 2022, only for the player to fall short of expectations at Old Trafford.

Even if United decide to cut their losses on Antony, sources indicate that the assault allegations present a major obstacle to a potential sale this summer, unless the case is dropped or the player is cleared before then.

Antony and his representatives maintain his innocence and believe he will be vindicated. Cavallin has alleged she was assaulted by Antony on several occasions in Brazil and the UK between June 2022 and May last year.

If United were to sell Antony, they would likely have to accept a significant loss on the £85.5 million fee they paid Ajax, making him the second most expensive signing in the club’s history at the time.

The Brazilian has struggled for form, managing just one goal and one assist since May, both in an FA Cup tie against League Two Newport County. Ten Hag has acknowledged the impact of the allegations on Antony’s form but has called on him to “step up” and deliver.

The future of another forward, Mason Greenwood, is also likely to impact the squad’s reshaping.

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
