Manchester United have secured Lisandro Martinez from Ajax and also want to lure Antony from the Dutch giants.
As per today’s version of AS (press image provided below), the squad that won the Eredivisie title last season is now disintegrating.
Man United have been the main predators. They have been able to lure manager, Erik ten Hag, and Ajax Player of the Season, Martinez.
It is stated that Antony is strongly linked with a move away from the Johan Cruijff ArenA outfit and the Brazilian international could become Man Utd’s star summer signing.
Jurrien Timber has been linked with United as well but the Madrid based outlet claim that he is determined to stay with the Netherlands champions.
We already know that the 22-year-old winger is pressing to leave Ajax and has got a contract in place to move to Old Trafford (The Daily Record).
However, the major stumbling block is the huge asking price. As per a report covered by Football Insider earlier in the day, Man Utd are reluctant to pay the asking fee of £59m to sign the South American attacker.
Antony was highly impressive on the right flank under the management of Ten Hag. In all competitions, the Selecao winger directly contributed in over 20 goals last season.
Sancho and Rashford were average last term and Man Utd do need to improve the quality and depth of their offense after offloading players like Mata and Lingard. In your view, should they offer £59million to sign Antony?
