"Gives Defenders Sleepless Nights"; Ten Hag's Potential Ajax Steal Could Be A Big Hit At United

Following Ten Hag's appointment as United's head coach, there has been much speculation about what he can bring to the club. 

One or two of his dependable Ajax players are among the players the Dutch tactician could consider bringing to Old Trafford. There are reports that Ten Hag has already identified Antony, Ajax's high-flying Brazilian winger, as one of the players he may sign in his first summer deal.

Ten Hag sanctioned a deal for Antony, who was then playing for Sao Paulo, after Hakim Ziyech left Ajax for Chelsea in 2020. The 22-year-old has gone on to be a revelation for Ajax, scoring 22 goals and assisting 20 times in 79 appearances. 

Manchester United, which is currently without a reliable right winger following Mason Greenwood's suspension, needs to bring in a reliable right winger. 


Antony is the only right winger they've been linked with, and with Ten Hag joining United, there's reason to believe he'll end up in Manchester. 


According to Sport Witness, Ten Hag told Trouw about his transfer requirements before agreeing to join Manchester United. He said,

"Yes, I set requirements in advance about how I want to work. If they aren’t granted, I won’t. I am ultimately responsible and accountable for the results. I don’t want to be the sole ruler. I stand for cooperation, but control in transfers is a condition for me."
