Man United star Antony films himself driving down a motorway in his £337,000 Lamborghini before the £85million winger quickly DELETED the phone footage after he posted it on social media – as the Brazilian prepares to return to Premier League action
The 22-year-old got into a brand new Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae to celebrate his inclusion in Brazil’s World Cup squad last month.
It’s not yet clear why the Brazilian deleted the video, but it could be because it’s illegal to use a mobile phone while driving.

The footage which has been uploaded to his Instagram account shows Antony driving down a motorway as he focuses on his watch and the Lamborghini logo on his steering wheel.
Although it was deleted on his account, the footage has since been shared by others.
The former Ajax star recently returned from Qatar, having been part of the Brazil team that was knocked out of the quarter-finals by Croatia on penalties.
Antony didn’t play much for Brazil in Qatar and at one point blamed the air conditioning in stadiums for his illness.
In fact, the only game the winger started was against Cameroon in which Tite’s side lost 1-0.
Titus – who resigned just two hours after Brazil’s elimination – favored Raphinha and Vinicius Jr on the flanks in front of Antony.

“I was just a humble little boy from a favela,” he told Sky Sports. “I didn’t have shoes to play football.
“I didn’t have a room, I slept on the sofa. I lived right in the middle of the favela. Twenty meters from my house there were drug dealers. Sometimes you would watch a match on a Sunday and he there was this smell, a smell of cannabis that permeated the house.
Antony will hope to continue his fine form for United, having scored three times in just six Premier League games for the club.
