Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Antony interest

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Antony interest -Manchester United News

Manchester United have a ‘genuine interest’ in Ajax winger Antony, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Antony profiled

Antony is primarily a right-winger who can also operate from the left and is valued at a career-high £31.5m by Transfermarkt.

The 22-year-old has been with Ajax since 2020 and has made 79 appearances for the Dutch giants, contributing to 42 goals during that time.

The Brazilian was a regular under Erik ten Hag in the 2020/21 campaign, helping Ajax to a league and cup double and once again played his part in lifting the Eredivisie title last season.

The Latest: Romano’s post

Romano took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to provide an update on United and Antony.

He revealed that the Red Devils have a ‘genuine interest’ in the winger and have held ‘internal discussions’ over a possible move. United are yet to launch a formal bid for the attacker, though, who remains under contract until 2025.

The Verdict: Shrewd move

Ten Hag actually doesn’t have a senior right-winger to choose from at Old Trafford, so a reunion with Antony could be a smart move.

Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga are all primarily left-wingers, so the Ajax star could slot perfectly into Ten Hag’s plans in England.

Premier League - Manchester United v Everton

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

The Dutchman was the man who brought Antony to Ajax and got the best out of him, and still just 22 years of age, you’d like to think he still has plenty of time to improve on his already impressive game.
