Manchester United, Six Sports

Manchester United are said to be in talks with Ajax winger Antony’s representatives.

Antony had been heavily linked with the Red Devils after Erik Ten Hag joined Untied as the head coach.

The Brazilian is said to have a good rapport with his former boss Ten Hag.

Moreover, he enjoyed an impressive two years under him at Ajax. He scored 22 goals and provided 16 assists in the 74 matches that he played across competitions.

He arrived in Amsterdam from Sao Paolo back in July 2020. The 22-year-old was bought for £14million by Ajax from the Brazilian club.

Ten Hag has been linked with some of his former players from Ajax. A deal for centre-back Jurrien Timber is also said to be on the cards.

Now, it seems that the Dutchman is now eager to bring the young winger to Old Trafford this summer.

Moreover, Goal reports that the player’s representatives have flown to Europe to negotiate a deal with United agents.

The report adds that the Brazilian is keen on playing for the English powerhouse.

Meanwhile, Ajax values the player at £51m. This should not be able much of a barrier for the Red Devils.

Could Antony become the first signing under Ten Hag at Manchester United?

Antony could well become the first signing under Ten Hag this summer. He could well be a part of Ten Hag’s project at the Old Trafford.

Though, United signed a star winger in Jadon Sancho, last year. Sancho has not yet been able to find his magic touch at the Old Trafford.

He is yet to establish himself as the first-choice winger. Therefore, if Antony can be signed, he could well pair up with the Englishman in the coming seasons.

Moreover, United and Ajax have strong relations that have been ongoing for years now. They have had many dealings between them.

Among them is United legend Edwin Van der Saar being part of the Amsterdam side.
