Manchester United are looking for a new manager and Ajax boss, Erik ten Hag, has been approached by the club.

According to The Sunday Mirror, the Red Devils can trigger the release clause of just 2 million euros to hire the services of the Dutch manager from the Eredivisie club.

However, there are other clubs interested in his signature as well. It is claimed that Ten Hag would like to take Timmer and Antony with him and if he moves to United, there is a chance that Robin van Persie could return to Old Trafford as a coach.

As far as Antony is concerned, Tutto Juve have reported that Man Utd could launch an attack to sign the Brazilian international from the Netherlands champions.

The 22-year-old may join to replace Rashford, who could end up leaving the club in the summer.

The £34million-rated attacker (UOL) has already directly contributed in 4 goals in just 2 starts for the senior national side and his form for Ajax has been brilliant as well.

Last season, the Samba star scored 10 goals and provided as many assists in all competitions under Erik ten Hag. Moreover, this time around, he has already netted 12 goals and provided 10 assists thus far for the league leaders.

He normally plays on the right wing in Ten Hag’s 4-2-3-1 system. So, if he does end up moving to Man Utd, we can expect him to line up with the likes of Fernandes and Sancho in the attacking midfield behind the No.9.

In your view, is Antony good enough to improve Manchester United?
