Antony’s ex Gabriela ‘to fly to UK in DAYS to speak to Brit cops’ over Man Utd star's ‘headbutt attack’ | The Sun

ANTONY'S ex-girlfriend is set to fly to the UK within days to speak to cops about her claims the footballer attacked her at a Manchester hotel.

The Red Devils star, 23, was last week grilled by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) for five hours over Gabriela Cavallin's allegations.

Gabriela, 22, has accused the £85million winger of assaulting her on numerous occasions throughout their relationship.

She claimed that she was first attacked in June last year, while pregnant and on holiday in Brazil.

The model and DJ alleged that Antony then headbutted and punched her, damaging a breast implant, at a hotel in Manchester on January 15 – the day after United's 2-1 victory over City.

And she claimed the Brazilian forward threw a glass at her in May, injuring her finger.

Two other women have made similar claims against the footballer.

Gabriela is now understood to be preparing to jet to the UK from Brazil before an "in person" interview with officers from GMP on Wednesday, reports The Telegraph.

Antony has strongly denied all allegations made against him and volunteered to meet cops in Manchester for questioning.

He was also voluntarily interviewed by Brazilian cops in June and was free to leave for the UK after cooperating with Sao Paulo police.

The football star has not been arrested or charged in either the UK or Brazil.

Antony was granted an indefinite leave of absence from United to deal with the allegations.

But on Tuesday he came on as a sub during Manchester United's clash against Galatasaray.

Antony had not played for the club since their 3-1 loss at Arsenal on September 3.

The Man Utd ace has repeatedly defended himself and denied accusations, which became public in June.

He wrote on Instagram: "Out of respect for my fans, friends and family, I feel obliged to speak out publicly about the false accusations that I have been a victim of.

"From the beginning, I have treated this matter with seriousness and respect, providing the necessary clarifications to the police.

"The investigation is under judicial secrecy, and therefore I cannot make its contents public.

"However, I can calmly say that the accusations are false, and that the current evidence and the ones yet to be produced demonstrate my innocence."

Gabriela previously led calls for the £150k-a-week star to be dropped from the squad in an exclusive interview with The Sun on Sunday.
