Manchester United want to sign Japanese international, Takefusa Kubo, to replace, Samba winger, Antony at Old Trafford.
According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, Man Utd have extensively scouted the Asian playmaker and want him to replace Antony.
The British news source have mentioned that Real Sociedad would accept a fee worth £43m for their prized asset.
Last season, the 22-year-old, who never played a game for Real Madrid, netted 9 goals and provided 7 assists in the La Liga for Sociedad.
As far as the current campaign is concerned, so far, Kubo has started 14 games in the league and directly contributed in 9 goals (6 goals and 3 assists).
On the other hand, Antony has been a massive flop for Man Utd. This term, he has neither scored a single goal nor provided any assist for the Red Devils.
The South American winger was a key member of Erik ten Hag’s Ajax squad that won the Eredivisie title and therefore, the Dutch manager opted to sign him last year.
However, after ample opportunities, it is now clear that luring Antony was a mistake and he must be offloaded.
In your view, should Man Utd agree £43m fee to sign Kubo?
