Report – Man Utd submit £51million first signing for Ten Hag as Darwin Nunez alternative
This summer, Manchester United has been linked with a number of excellent attackers, including Brazilian international Antony.
Due to the presence of Erik ten Hag, a reputable source, UOL, revealed last month that the Red Devils are favorites to hire the Samba attacker.
Today, Goal Brazil reported that Antony’s team is already in Europe, attempting to finalize a £51 million transfer from Ajax to Manchester United.
According to the report, the Old Trafford club is attempting to entice the South American, who might be Ten Hag’s first signing for the club.
The 52-year-old boss signed the teenager for Ajax two years ago, and he scored 12 goals and supplied 10 assists in all competitions for the Dutch giants last season under his tutelage.
Antony was a member of the Brazilian Olympic team that won gold last year. Furthermore, in 9 appearances for the senior national team, he has scored two goals and supplied two assists.
The former Sao Paulo winger primarily plays on the right flank, and if we do complete the signing, Ten Hag might use him in the offense alongside Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Man United has already let forwards like Lingard and Mata depart on a free transfer this summer. Rashford, on the other hand, was average, and Martial had an average second half of the season while on loan at Sevilla.
As a result, the department should be strengthened during the summer transfer window. Should Ten Hag spend £51 million to sign Antony from Ajax, in your opinion?
