Antony’s agent in Manchester for talks over Man Utd transfer as Ajax hold out on £68m transfer fee


A REPRESENTATIVE for Ajax winger Antony is reportedly in Manchester to discuss a potential move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils have been linked with the Brazilian winger throughout the summer window.

And now one of his agents is in the North West to hold discussions with United, according to The Times.

Dutch champions Ajax are claimed to be holding out for £68million for the 22-year-old attacker.

United are thought to have had a £51m bid for Antony rejected earlier this month.

But boss Erik ten Hag remains keen to get a deal over the line.

Ten Hag is looking to raid his old club once again after securing a £55m swoop for defender Lisandro Martinez.

An attacker though remains a priority before the end of the transfer window.

In addition to Martinez, the Red Devils have signed left-back Tyrell Malacia and playmaker Christian Eriksen, but are yet to bolster their attack.

Ten Hag though has said signing another forward is “vital” due to the congested fixture schedule.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future also remains uncertain.

When asked about bringing in another attacker, the United gaffer said: “I think it’s vital if you want to get success, the season is really long.

“That is a reason, but also the number of games. You need more options in offence. But we also have still time to fill that in.

“We signed (Christian) Eriksen for the midfield, we are really happy with that. I am really happy with the performance of the midfield and offence at this moment.

“But I also know this season, a lot of games, World Cup, so we need more options.

“We have a good team, we need a good squad to get the right results at the end of the season.”
