Manchester United, who have already agreed to sign Lisandro Martinez, have been attempting to recruit Antony from Ajax as well.
Man United is ‘ching closer’ to signing the Brazilian international, according to The Mirror, as Erik ten Hag wants to improve his assault for the upcoming season.
According to a reputable news source, the 22-year-representative old’s has gone to Manchester to finalize a £68 million agreement.
United made an initial bid of £51 million, which was rejected by the Dutch champions. They must now increase their offer to entice Antony as soon as possible.
According to the Mirror, United is ready to clinch a contract with the player and is preparing to meet with one of the Brazilian agents to discuss personal conditions.
Antony can play on either flank, but his natural position is on the right. Greenwood was our first choice RW at Old Trafford last season, but he has been sidelined for some time and the situation remains uncertain.
Rashford and Sancho, on the other side, were exceedingly unreliable last season, and Elanga only scored two league goals. As a result, signing a great winger, whom Ten Hag is well-versed in, makes perfect sense.
Last season, the South American attacker contributed directly to 22 goals for the Eredivisie giants under the Dutch boss.
The new Premier League season begins in two weeks. Let’s hope we can close the deal as soon as feasible.
