‘I’m Told’: Fabrizio Romano Reveals Manchester United Target Is Now Forcing Move After Huge Bid – ‘He’s Really Pushing’
According to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, Manchester United target Antony is now attempting to push a move from Ajax to Old Trafford. The transfer insider stated how the teenage winger is “very pressing” for this transfer to happen, but admitted that Ajax does not want to let him go after recently rejecting a massive bid.
What Did Romano Have to Say?
Romano has a lot of information to offer to fans about the ongoing transfer drama in his video.
“Manchester United is now looking for a new winger.”
“I’ve been told that Antony wants to go. The player wishes to join Manchester United. He’s pushing hard for this change. This is why he was not working with the team on Friday, but rather at the gym’s training ground.
“Antony told Ajax through his agents that he wanted to examine the Manchester United proposition; Ajax responded “no” to an €80 million (£68 million) bid.” Antony is pushing for a meeting between the two clubs.
“What is Manchester United doing?” They are still there, they will try to sign Antony if Ajax alters their mind, but they are also in communication with the agents of Cody Gakpo – he is a cheaper option.”
“So, Gakpo and Antony are two separate transactions that Manchester United are exploring because they want to prepare for next week when crazy things will happen on the market.”
Antony is a superb player, as he has demonstrated during his brief career. Nothing exemplifies this more than his record in the Eredivisie this season, with one goal and two assists in just two games, and some magical performances to go along with these amazing numbers.
Manchester United are not giving up on Antony. Ajax turned down new bid but Man Utd plan to try again – they feel Antony really wants the move. 🚨🔴🇧🇷 #MUFC
Been told it’s not sure that Antony starts on Sunday yet, still discussed internally.
