The Antony acquisition is Manchester United’s main goal at the end of the summer transfer window. According to “The Athletic” Ajax Amsterdam valued its star at 100 million euros.
After the disastrous beginning of the season, “Czerwony Diabły” finally became active on the transfer market. Casemiro, who was bought from Real Madrid, has already moved to Old Trafford.
However, this probably will not be the last high-profile deal United have made. Now the Manchester team is looking to win over Ajax Amsterdam star Antony.
The player himself also puts a lot of pressure on the transfer. So much so that on Friday and Saturday he did not show up for the team training. He was also missing from the national team for the league match against Sparta Rotterdam.
The winger hopes that both clubs will be able to agree on the amount of compensation. Manchester United made an offer of € 80 million on Wednesday. For Ajax, however, this is not enough.
The proposal from England was quickly rejected by the Dutch. As reported by “The Athletic”, they have already set the price for the player. It amounts to around EUR 100 million.
Manchester United are also considering recruiting another player who is currently playing for the Netherlands. I’m talking about Cody Gakpo. In this case, however, he has to wait for the result of Wednesday’s Champions League qualifying match between PSV and Glasgow Rangers.
