Antony has strongly denied the “false allegations”.
According to The Telegraph, a third case – involving an incident in a car in May 2022 – has been dropped at the request of the alleged victim.
A police report from law student Rayssa de Freitas – which has been made public – describes alleged violent behaviour from the Man United player and internet personality Mallu Ohana.
But it’s understood she has now withdrawn the allegation.
It comes amid reports that Man United didn’t know the police report had been filed against Antony before signing him.
According to The Telegraph, they were unaware of the allegations despite the alleged incident taking place three months before his £85million move to the club.
Man United said they carried out checks on Antony as they do with all players – but their probe didn’t reveal any abuse allegations.
The club reportedly only became aware of the police report via Brazilian media reports when they were also shared by Antony’s reps.
Antony is on paid leave from Man United until further notice.
His ex, Cavallin, has accused the Brazilian star of physical aggression towards her on a number of occasions in bombshell claims.
A total of four alleged attacks are described in a police report seen by respected sports news site ESPN.
One of these claims allegedly occurred at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Manchester on January 15.
In a statement on September 10, Man United said it “acknowledges the allegations made against Antony”.
“Players who have not participated in international matches are due back in training on Monday,” it said.
“However, it has been agreed with Antony that he will delay his return until further notice in order to address the allegations.
“As a club we condemn acts of violence and abuse.
“We recognise the importance of safeguarding all those involved in this situation, and acknowledge the impact these allegations have on survivors of abuse.”
Antony volunteered himself for interview in June.
He said: “I have agreed with Manchester United to take a period of absence while I address the allegations made against me.
“This was a mutual decision to avoid distraction to my teammates and unnecessary controversy for the club.
“I want to reiterate my innocence of the things I have been accused of, and I will fully cooperate with the police to help them reach the truth.
