Manchester United offered Ajax Amsterdam an impressive 80 million euros for hit winger Antony. The Dutch rejected the offer of the club from Old Trafford – we read in “The Athletic”.
The “Red Devils” are trying hard to contract a few new players, which Erik ten Hag asked for openly in front of the cameras. So far, the club’s activities on the market have not been very successful. After the failure of negotiations with Adrien Rabiot and the receding transfer of Frenkie de Jong, the time has come for another disappointment.
Activists from Stretford End yesterday made an offer to Ajax Amsterdam’s desk for 22-year-old winger Antony. The supporter of the entire operation was the MU trainer, who had the opportunity to work with the Brazilian at Johan Cruijff ArenA.
Manchester began negotiating with a bang, offering the other party … EUR 80 million.
The huge amount did not convince the Dutch champion, who rejected the efforts of the English.
The leaders of the sixth power of the past Premier League campaign are not yet completely abandoning the subject of the 22-year-old from São Paulo, although it is doubtful that they will make a bigger offer.
It is possible that in this situation the candidacy of Cody Gakpo will gain strength. A 23-year-old is primarily a much less expensive option. PSV values its ward’s card at around 35 million euros, but is ruling out a sale at the moment. He will sit down for possible talks when he successfully completes his struggles in the Champions League qualifying rounds.
Then there is also the figure of Christian Pulisic. In this case, it would be an annual loan. The Blues are ready to negotiate, but before that they would like to extend their contract with the American.
Busy weeks ahead of Old Trafford activists. The team is clearly not prepared for the season, and so far there are no reinforcements.
There is really little time until September 1, the last day of the summer transfer window.
