Mark Goldbridge is excited by the news linking Manchester United with a move for Ajax winger Antony.
Goldbridge has been speaking on The United Stand YouTube channel discussing United’s reported transfer targets.
Back in April, Spanish outlet Marca relayed a report from The Times shortly after Erik ten Hag was announced as the Red Devils boss and it stated that the 52-year-old had already held a meeting with the Old Trafford executives, with Antony named as a possible transfer target.
Man United are reportedly now in talks with Antony’s agent amid talk of a €60m (£51m) move, which is something that has excited Goldbridge.
Would you like to see Antony at United?
He said: “We’re crying out for a winger who’s left-footed, and Antony would fit that bill. And if he’s available for €60m… I don’t know what’s not to like.
“I would like this deal to happen.”
TIF Thoughts on Antony to United…
Will United make the top four next season?
With players already confirmed to be heading out the door, including Paul Pogba and with that figure possibly rising to 12, there will be plenty of room on the wage bill and indeed the squad for Ten Hag to make his mark, and by bringing in a player he knows so well, this could be very good business from the Red Devils.
