Man Utd close to agreeing personal terms with Ajax star ahead of £51million move
Manchester United are in talks with Ajax star Antony over a £51million move.
Antony has been persistently linked with a move to United after starring under Erik ten Hag at Ajax last season.
Goal Brasil now report the Premier League side are making serious progress in making the 22-year-old their first signing of the summer and the first of the new era at Old Trafford.
The report claims Antony’s representatives have arrived in Europe with the intention of ‘accelerating’ or ‘closing’ a deal with United.
The winger’s future is expected to be decided in the coming days with the transfer valued in the region of €60million.
Antony finished last season’s Eredivisie-winning campaign with 12 goals and 10 assists in 33 league appearances, missing the final seven games of the season with an ankle injury.
United also hope to sign another member of that Ajax side in Jurrien Timber – although latest reports from Netherlands would suggest the 20-year-old could stay in Netherlands for another season.
Frenkie de Jong, who played under ten Hag at Ajax, is another coveted by the Premier League side. United are close to agreeing a €80m fee with Barcelona but it remains to be seen whether the 25-year-old can be convinced to leave the Camp Nou.
Ten Hag is eager to bring in a versatile forward option with 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo the team’s only consistent source of goals last season.
Benfica striker Darwin Nunez is a target but the 22-year-old has now agreed personal terms with rivals Liverpool.
