The Lowdown: Still waiting…
Ten Hag was announced as the new Manchester United manager back in April. Since then, the Red Devils have been linked with a plethora of players but are still yet to bring in any for the Dutchman.
The only meaningful business so far is confirming exits for Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata, and it looks as if Ten Hag is taking matters into his own hands when it comes to a potential move for Antony.
The Latest: Antony update
Romano took to Twitter on Thursday evening to provide an update on United and Antony. He revealed United are ‘really interested’ and have already made contact, ‘with Ten Hag pushing’ for a transfer.
The transfer expert’s ‘been told’ that the winger’s camp is ‘now asking Ajax to listen to bids’ this summer.
The Verdict: Get it done
Antony appears to be keen on leaving Ajax this summer, and a move to Old Trafford could be perfect. The Brazilian starred under Ten Hag last season, contributing to 22 goals in 32 games. United also don’t have a senior recognised right-winger on the books, with Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho down as left-wingers.
Therefore, signing an out-and-out right-winger could be handy, and a player who Ten Hag knows how to get the best from, is still just 22 years of age and enjoyed a brilliant campaign last time out is seemingly a no brainer.
