The Brazilian international is reported “ching closer” to joining Manchester United as Erik ten Hag tries to bolster his assault for the upcoming season, according to The Mirror.
The renowned news source has mentioned that the representative of the 22-year-old has flown to Manchester to seal a deal worth £68m.
The Mirror claim that the Old Trafford outfit is prepared to agree on a contract with the player, they are set to hold talks with one of the Brazilian agents in order to agree on personal terms.
Antony can play on either flank but naturally, he is a right-winger. At Old Trafford, Greenwood was our first choice RW in the last campaign but he has been unavailable for quite some time and the situation is still uncertain.
On the other hand, Rashford and Sancho were highly inconsistent the last term and Elanga only scored two goals in the league. Therefore, it makes complete sense to sign a quality winger, who Ten Hag knows all about.
Last season, the South American attacker directly contributed to 22 goals for the Eredivisie giants under the guidance of the Dutch coach.
The new Premier League campaign will start in two weeks. Let’s hope we can get the deal over the line as soon as possible.
