The £85.51 million winger will be out for Leeds’ Premier League visit on Wednesday night, and it is unknown whether he will be fit for the rematch on Sunday.

Antony, 22, missed United’s last five games before the World Cup but was available for all 13 of their games after returning from Qatar.

“I’m not sure. “I don’t think it’s a long time, but we’ll see how things progress in the coming days,” Ten Hag added. “It’s in his leg, but I can’t say where. That will become clear to you.”

United will be missing three midfielders for the Leeds game, as Casemiro begins his three-match domestic suspension and Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay are both injured.

Eriksen is sidelined until at least late April due to an ankle injury, and United compensated for his absence by signing Marcel Sabitzer on loan from Bayern Munich last week.

Sabitzer, who came on as a substitute in the weekend win over Crystal Palace, might make his full debut against Leeds, but Ten Hag is said to be looking for a permanent midfielder in the summer.

“I suppose summer plans, we have a long-term strategy, and you also look two or three windows ahead,” Ten Hag added. “Therefore we have a long-term strategy.

“But, due to development, you must revisit the strategy on a regular basis. For example, who expected (Alejandro) Garnacho to be involved in this development? As a result, your approach to the window has changed.”

Ten Hag was tight-lipped about whether United was getting closer to signing new long-term contracts for David de Gea, Diogo Dalot, and Garnacho.
