More recently, Brazilian source, UOL, have reported that the likes of Liverpool and the Magpies are also interested in luring the 22-year-old star.

However, Man Utd have the advantage because they have Ten Hag. Two years ago, Ajax signed Antony from Sao Paulo and since then, the young winger has excelled under the management of the Dutch boss.

Last season, the 9-capped international started 24 games in the Dutch league and directly contributed in 17 goals (9 goals and 8 assists).

The Olympic Champion scored 2 goals and provided 4 assists in 7 group stage appearances in the UEFA Champions League this season and directly contributed in 12 goals in the title winning league campaign.

This term, Mason Greenwood, who has not played since January, has been our top scoring winger with 6 goals. Big money summer signing, Jadon Sancho, has only found the net 5 times in 38 appearances.

Therefore, Man Utd need to improve the wide attacking positions for the next campaign. In your view, should Ten Hag move in to secure signing of Antony in the summer?
