Manchester United are still busy in the transfer market to bolster their squad depth this summer and with the already confimed deal for Netherlands left-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, and also agreeing deal with free agent Christian Eriksen, Manchester United are reportedly in contacts with Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong together with Ajax forward Antony .
According to Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United ‘really want’ to tempt Ajax into sanctioning Antony’s move to Old Trafford ahead of the new season.
Erik ten Hag is preparing for his first season at the Theatre of Dreams, after being appointed as man Utd manager last season and according to MailOnline, ten Hag remains interested in sealing a reunion with Antony at Manchester United.
However, the report suggests the Red Devils officials thinks it will difficult to seal a deal with Ajax as the Amsterdam Champions have set a £70million price tag on the 22-year-old Brazilian forward which is seen as too expensive.
It is understood that Manchester United officials travelled to Amsterdam last month as they attempted to come to an agreement with Ajax, but it appears those efforts were unsuccessful.
With Cristiano Ronaldo handing transfer request from Manchester United hierachies, Romano believes Ten Hag is seeking to replace the Portuguese poacher with fresh faces in the attacking front
