The source has confirmed that Manchester United’s representatives are in talks with the Eredivisie champions over a potential deal involving the 22-year-old. The Red Devils are expected to pay around £51 million for the Ajax winger.
Antony, 22, has been a key player for Ajax over the past two seasons. He has played 79 games under Erik ten Hag and has netted 22 times. The think tank at Old Trafford is looking to reunite the new United manager with his former student. He may be the first to sign in less than a decade of Hag.
The goal also said they represented the player in Europe to see that negotiations are completed. Manchester United are confident in convincing Antony to join them due to Hag’s ten appearances. In addition, the club is looking to take advantage of its good relationship with Ajax.
If a denial player is sold for £ 51 million, Sao Paulo will represent £ 13 million in all jobs due to the 20% sales clause imposed before his arrival in Amsterdam in 2020.
Antony is the type of winger needed by Manchester United right now and is familiar with the Hag 10-based program. He passes the ball well and is very good when it comes to 1v1 situations. Special talk is also needed about his blasting speed. South America could be a necessary energy injection on the United frontline.
The Brazilian player loves to cut inside and bears the brunt of scoring goals outside the box. That being said, he is also a good guard. This makes him unpredictable. For a player in the modern wing to be successful, unpredictability is often the key and Antony marks those boxes.
He will add depth to Hag’s frontline, and with Rashford not at his best, Jadon Sancho could play on the left side with an Ajax player playing on the right.
The Red Devils will have a big summer window and need to intensify the attack immediately. Throughout last season their attack was lacking in intelligence and with the blocking of Cristiano Ronaldo, no other striker had a greater goal scoring. The arrival of the Ajax winger could change things for the better, for United and Hag 10.
