Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano makes Antony claim

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano makes Antony claim -Manchester United News

Manchester United are ‘exploring’ a move for Ajax winger Antony, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Plenty of targets

The Red Devils are yet to make a marquee signing for Erik ten Hag despite seemingly having a number of apparent targets.

United’s priority is still a move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, while an offer has been made for free agent Christian Eriksen.

Defensive reinforcements could also be on the radar, with Ajax’s Jurrien Timber and Villarreal’s Pau Torres two potential targets, and Romano has added Antony to that list.

The Latest: Another one…

Talking to GiveMeSport, Romano was quizzed on United and Antony, stating that the club are ‘exploring’ a move and have held internal discussions.

The transfer expert also claimed that Ten Hag has done ‘incredible work’ in developing the winger in the Netherlands.

“Of course, Antony is one of the players they are exploring and they have discussed internally. Erik ten Hag is a big fan of this boy.

“The Antony [we see] today is also thanks to the incredible work of Erik ten Hag. So, it’s absolutely normal to explore this possibility.”

The Verdict: Clever move?

Antony is a right-winger who contributed to 22 goals in 32 games under Ten Hag last season. The United boss currently doesn’t have a senior right-winger at Old Trafford, so a move for the Brazilian would make sense.

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The 22-year-old is valued at a career-high £31.5m by Transfermarkt, so United would be getting a high-quality attacker who, you’d like to think, has the scope to improve on his already impressive game, making it a shrewd transfer in both the short and long term.
