Manchester United are definitely interested in Ajax’s Antony this summer, with some sources suggesting they’d be surprised if he didn’t arrive at Old Trafford.
This has been suggested by TalkSPORT journalist Alex Crook, who has been speaking live on air about the Red Devils’ interest in the Brazilian.
“I think United are definitely in for Antony.
“There’s been talk of a £40m bid going in for him. Certainly, my sources at United haven’t distanced themselves from those rumours, so I think Antony is a target.
“In fact, I’ve had a text from somebody else saying, ‘if he doesn’t become a Manchester United player this summer, I would be surprised’.
“I think, at the moment, him and Frenkie de Jong look like two definite arrivals at Manchester United and two players that Ten Hag clearly trusts and believes he can get the best out of.”
TIF Thoughts on Crook’s comments…
Antony is clearly a player who Erik ten Hag will be familiar with, having managed the Brazilian for 79 games which provided a return of 42 goal involvements (via Transfermarkt).
Would Antony improve this United side?
And you would think Crook’s comments would clearly suggest this is a player the Dutch manager believes could improve his current options at Old Trafford.
