Manchester United made a bid of no less than eighty million euros for Antony on Wednesday. However, the proposal was rejected by Ajax. With that news, The Athletic will release on Thursday evening.
The Amsterdammers are determined to keep Antony, after several basic players have already left the Johan Cruijff Arena. According to the well-established medium, it is questionable whether United will make a new, improved bid. With the Premier League superpower, there is little confidence that they will be able to unleash the 22-year-old Brazilian winger at Ajax.
Erik ten Hag is committed to reuniting with Antony, but the club doubts whether it wants to pay more than eighty million. That is why The Mancunians may switch to one of the alternatives. Cody Gakpo is also still in the picture. A deal with PSV is considered more promising, it sounds. The Dutch international extended his contract in Eindhoven until mid-2026, but he has made clear transfer agreements with the club. It is reported that he must yield at least forty million.
🚨 Man Utd yesterday made an €80m offer for Ajax swinger Antony. Bid rejected as #Ajax intend to keep 22yo Brazil int‘l. Unclear if #MUFC will keep pushing – sense is it’s unlikely + Cody Gakpo among alternative options. With @lauriewhitwell @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/ogrM2xmMKq
