South American winger, Antony, is heavily linked with the Red Devils and the latest reports suggest that the player is prepared to secure a move to reunite with Erik ten Hag.
Yesterday, we covered a story (via The Sun) claiming that the £50million+ rated attacker is close to moving to Manchester United.
As per a report covered by Goal.com today, the Old Trafford outfit have not submitted any official offer to sign the Brazilian international from Ajax.
The news source have confirmed that the 22-year-old is determined to sign for the 20-time English champions in order to work with Ten Hag again.
Antony rose to fame at Ajax under the management of the 52-year-old coach and the Samba star is a huge admirer. At the end of the last campaign, he left a message for the Dutch boss (via The Mirror):
“I want to wish you all the best at your new club, I also want to thank you for everything you taught me. I am thankful [for] all the opportunities and learning every day. Know that I will always stand with you if you need me.”
Well, as it stands, Ten Hag needs his services at Manchester United, who have allowed attackers like Lingard and Mata to leave for free.
Moreover, as per The Telegraph, the Red Devils are looking to sell Anthony Martial and there is no news on Greenwood’s availability.
Antony regularly scored and created goals for the Dutch champions in the last campaign and he likes to feature on the right flank.
If the youngster does end up moving to United, we can expect him to start with Ronaldo and Sancho in the attack next term.
