Manchester United high profile winger Antony Matheus dos Santos has recently been linked with a move back to his native Brazil, with Flamengo eyeing him on a loan transfer.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on his latest Caught Offside column has downplayed these reports, claiming a dose of uncertainty to them.

On his latest column for the Daily Briefing, Romano explained that Antony is not necessarily that likely to accept a proposal from a Brazilian club, having just turned down something similar in January.

“There have been further reports about Antony’s situation at Manchester United, with claims from Brazil that Flamengo are analysing a possible one-year loan move for the winger,” he stated

“I would take this with a pinch of salt, however, as Antony firmly rejected any option from Brazil in January. Let’s see if that changes in the summer, but right now there’s nothing taking place, and I’m not even sure he would change his mind and accept that just five months later.” he added.

Antony, who has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford since his move from Ajax last season, may be looking to move on after a disappointing second season with the club.

He was once seen as a promising talent at Manchester United, and is now under immense pressure to revive his English football career before it’s too late.

Romano hinted that Manchester United would be open to letting Antony leave, potentially paving the way for Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise to replace the Brazilian winger this summer.

While the future remains uncertain for Antony, Romano remains sceptical about the possibility of the 24-year-old changing his mind so quickly about moving back to Brazil.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Antony and things can change quickly in football, but for the moment, a return to Brazil seems unlikely.
