Antony Santos Of Manchester United Is Having A Good time With His Son, Lorenzo Amid Domestic Violence Scandals and Losing His Spot In Brazil Squad


Antony Santos is having a hearty time with his son, Lorenzo, as he continues to battle allegations of domestic violence from previous lovers, and steady decline in his football career.

On Wednesday night, July 3, Antony posted a video on his Instagram story in which his son, Lorenzo, was seen exercising his muscles.

Antony Mudded With Allegations Of Domestic Violence

The Manchester United man was excluded from Brazil’s squad for the 2026 World Cup qualification matches against Peru and Bolivia on September 4, 2023, due to the earlier stated allegations.

The allegation was leveled against him by ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin, with Brazilian media outlet Universo Online reporting the existence of pictures displaying the ex-girlfriend having injuries to her head.

They also showed Gabriela having injuries to her hand as the Greater Manchester Police waded into the matter.

There were also pictures of abrasions and threatening messages said to have been sent by Antony.

Additionally, two other women also came forward to accuse Anthony of assault, which he firmly denied on the Brazilian network SBT on September 9, 2024, sharing that he would “provide the proof and people will understand.”

Manchester United also put out a club statement on September 10, 2024, acknowledging the allegations and announcing that an agreement with the footballer was in place to grant him an extended leave of absence.

This was in order to offer him enough time to sort the situation after the international break in September 2023.

Anyway, Antony afterward returned to Manchester United training on September 29, 2023, and ultimately had a wishy-washy season at Old Trafford.

Antony’s Children?

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old is a father to two children, a son, Lorenzo, born in November 2019, and a daughter, Lavinne, born in 2024, who he has with his wife, Rosilene Xavier.

When Did Antony Get Married To Wife, Rosilene?

It is uncertain when Antony got married to wife, Rosilene Xavier, as the pair tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony.

Reports indicate that the pair have been together since they were teenagers and their relationship began when Antony was still trying to learn the ropes of being a footballer at the youth team of Brazilian side Sao Paulo.

Rosilene Xavier

Rosilene Xavier, 25, was born in Brazil on August 10, 1999, and her husband, Antony, 24, is about a year younger than her, having been born on February 24, 2000.

She completed her basic and secondary education in Brazil, but it is uncertain if she attended a university.

There is also no information about her family, as she has not shared anything regarding such to the public.

Antony Matheus dos Santos

Moreover, Antony Matheus dos Santos has played for just three clubs in his career, namely; São Paulo, Ajax, and currently Manchester United.

Antony joined the Red Devils from Dutch giants Ajax on August 30, 2022, for a fee of €95 million.

His current deal at Manchester United runs until June 30, 2027, having penned a five-year deal when he arrived in the summer of 2022.

There is also the option of his contract being extended for a further, as fans of the Old Trafford side continue to hope that the attacker lives up to expectations.

Antony’s Market Value, Net Worth And Salary

Antony’s market value is €25 million, while his net worth is estimated to be within the region of  €7 million – €12 million. He earns about €205,000 per week at Manchester United.

Antony Career Stats

He has made 216 club appearances thus far in his career, scoring 41 goals and providing 33 assists in all competitions.

Internationally, Antony has made 16 appearances for Brazil, scoring 2 goals and providing 2 assists.

Future At Manchester United

The Brazilian will have to do much to convince the fans of Manchester United, having failed to live up to the billing in two seasons since his arrival in the summer of 2022.

Antony has shown glimpses of brilliance since he moved to the Manchester-based club, showing flair and impressive finishing, however, he looks too predictable and inconsistent.

Antony’s Career Decline

He is still 24 years old but his career appears to be on a downward spiral, given how he has failed to deliver since joining Manchester United.

There are reports that the Red Devils are even looking to sell him to any club interested in his services.

It will be interesting to see where his career is headed, but it is evident that he has to significantly improve.

Unfortunately for the footballer, his underwhelming showing during the 2023/24 season also resulted in him being excluded from Brazil’s squad for the 2024 Copa America.
