Manchester United is set to put more pressure on Ajax to sign Brazilian winger Antony.
As speculation continues, the Times says that one of the winger’s representatives has been in England this week.
According to the article, “one of Antony’s, the Ajax winger‘s, representatives is believed to be in Manchester this week.”
The Mail also report the news, stating: “It’s understood that one of the Brazilian’s representatives, Junior Pedroso, was in Manchester for talks on Thursday.”
Ajax does not wish to lose any more key players this summer, but they are preparing for the fact they might not be able to turn down an offer from United. The Times reports they are looking for £68 million.
The Dutch side has just signed winger Francisco Conceicao from Porto, and they have already admitted he will be Antony’s successor.
He added: “I assume that no one leaves this core anymore. Of course, you can never say never, I’ve learned that by now.”
Ten Hag has insisted United needs another attacking player, telling a press conference: “‘I think it’s vital if you want to get success, the season is really long.
“That is a reason, but also the number of games. You need more options in offense. But we also have still time to fill that in.”
