Medical set – Brazilian star’s entourage fly to Europe to secure Manchester United deal
With the arrival of Erik ten Hag at Manchester United, the Dutchman may look to his previous club Ajax for players he knows and trusts.
Following a poor season at Old Trafford, reinforcements are required, and identifying players who fit Ten Hag’s approach will be critical to their success. Antony, for example, is said to be interested in reuniting with his former management.
According to Goal Brasil, Antony’s entourage has gone to Europe to expedite a deal to Manchester United.
Moving to Manchester United may be an easy transfer.
However, the source indicates that Antony would cost Manchester United around £51 million, which may be a hefty risk given that the Brazilian has never played in the Premier League.
Antony played for Ten Hag at Ajax for two years, and the fact that he is willing to pack his belongings and travel to England at the age of 22 speaks volumes.
The Brazilian understands Ten Hag’s demands and has grown acclimated to his style of play, so a move to the Premier League would be much easier than a move to another English team.
