Manchester United are under pressure to drop player, Antony following ex-girlfriend alleged assault. This is coming after the club sent Greenwood to Getafe on loan.
The Brazil star has been dropped from the national squad for World Cup qualifying games and everyone would be watching how the club would handle this new issue.
United are currently struggling with their form after losing two matches in four games in the new season.
Unpopular owners, the Glazer family have reportedly taken the club off the market after failing to attract an offer that meets their asking price.
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said the player had been stood down in order to “preserve the alleged victim, the player, the Brazil team, and the CBF”.
Although, Antony has denied the accusations. According to his social media statement, he was a victim of false accusations.
It came after the Brazilian press published WhatsApp messages reportedly between Antony and Cavallin in which the player allegedly threatened his ex-partner.
Cavallin is also shown in one photo with an apparent head wound.
In a statement to Britain’s Daily Telegraph, Greater Manchester Police said they were “aware of the allegations made and inquiries remain ongoing”.
Antony joined United last year for an initial fee of 95 million euros ($102 million) but has struggled to perform consistently, scoring just eight goals in 48 games.
United are likely to come under intense pressure to drop Antony while investigations take place.
