Ten Hag surely thinks that players with Dutch or Ajax connection can turn things around at Old Trafford as once again, Antony is in the lime light.
As per De Telegraaf, Man Utd moved in with a huge bid worth 80 million euros for the Brazilian international but it was turned down.
After the rejection of United’s mammoth offer yesterday, Antony did not take part in training for the Eredivisie champions today.
It is reported that the Netherlands giants want a fee of 100 million euros (£85m) from the sale of their prized asset this summer.
In all fairness, we paid over the odds to lure Lisandro Martinez. He is the shortest central defender in the Premier League and has started his career with the Red Devils in the worst possible fashion.
Man Utd have 0 points on the table, already let in 6 goals and the Argentine international had a torrid time in both the PL fixtures.
For £85m, proven quality attackers can be signed but the dilemma is that the 20-time English champions are not really an attractive destination for players that are looking to win trophies.
Last season, Antony netted 12 goals and provided 10 assists for Ajax while mainly playing as a right winger under Ten Hag.
This term, so far, he has started 3 games for the Dutch club and directly contributed in 4 goals (2 goals and 2 assists). In your view, should Man Utd raise their bid to sign the Olympic champion for £85m?
