Antony Brazil

Manchester United are in search of a new manager for next season and reports have heavily linked them with Ajax boss, Eric ten Hag.

According to MEN, Man Utd could be set to raid Ajax for Brazilian international, Antony, if Ten Hag does end up moving to Old Trafford.

On the other hand, Spanish source, Nacional, claim that the Dutch manager has accepted the challenge to improve the Red Devils, who are now very close to signing Antony from the Eredivisie giants.

The Samba star has been brilliant for the Netherlands champions in the current campaign. In all competitions, so far, he has started 32 games and directly contributed in 22 goals (12 goals and 10 assists).

The 22-year-old winger’s current contract with the Johan Cruijff Arena outfit will expire in 2025 and a week ago, Brazilian source, UOL Esporte, reported that he is valued at around 40 million euros (£34million).

In the summer, Man Utd splashed the cash to lure English winger Jadon Sancho, who has lately shown signs of settling in but his overall stats are not good enough.

Sancho directly contributed in over 30 goals in all three campaigns with Dortmund but things have been difficult since moving back to England. So far, in 33 games in all competitions, the Three Lions star has only scored 5 goals (3 assists) for the Red Devils.

Wingers like Martial and Rashford’s futures at Old Trafford are uncertain and therefore, the wide attacking positions should be reinforced in the summer.

In your view, should Man Utd offer £34million to sign Antony?
