Liverpool will be delighted with the fact that Casemiro has not completed his move to Manchester United as yet and we’d have weak midfield tonight.
The Old Trafford club need to step up big time to challenge the Merseysiders and another defeat is going to be catastrophic.
The Red Devils desperately have to improve the squad and after securing a deal for Casemiro, they have been pressing to sign Antony.
According to The Mirror (press image provided below), Man Utd’s initial move worth £67million was turned down by Ajax and the Dutch champions continue to play hardball.
However, the Brazilian international was not part of the squad when the Eredivisie giants defeated Sparta Rotterdam yesterday and therefore, Ten Hag is ready to return with another bid to get the signing done.
The British outlet claim Ajax are demanding a fee of £84million and Man Utd are ready to up their bid to hire his services.
In the Netherlands, De Telegraaf also report that the 20-time English champions will return with a new bid and it is reported that they will certainly submit an irrefutable offer if Liverpool earn all three points tonight.
Going into the fixture against Jurgen Klopp’s men, United lack firepower in the attack, their midfield is average, the defense has been all over the place and goalie, David De Gea, is out of form. Can we stop Liverpool?
It is known that 22-year-old Antony is himself pressing Ajax to negotiate with Man United so that he can move to Old Trafford.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming hours and will keep you updated.
