News just broke out from the Netherlands right after Antony Santos just handed Ajax a transfer request, as per Simon Mullock from The Sunday Mirror. The 22-year-old has already told his club that he has decided to leave in order to join Manchester United and hopes the deal can go through in the next 48 hours.

Some media outlets from the Netherlands reported that the English giants had submitted a new offer above €90 million, which would make him the third most expensive signing in the club's history. However, transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano quickly denied those rumors but said that it is only a matter of time until the Red Devils send the new bid to Ajax.

According to David Ornstein from The Athletic, Manchester United are really confident Antony will be signed by the end of this week since they already have agreed on personal terms with the 22-year-old winger. The player’s representatives are already in London hoping to get the deal done with United soon.

Finally, it looks like the whole Antony novel is coming to an end in the next couple of days. Erik ten Hag will get the player he always wanted to reinforce the attack and the club can move on to other transfer objectives that the team needs like a backup goalkeeper who can challenge David De Gea and a new right-back to compete with Diogo Dalot.

The other Eredivisie target

Cody Gakpo has also been on Manchester United’s shortlist during this past month. Tonight, his team PSV Eindhoven got knocked out of the Champions League play-offs and will not be in this season’s group stages. This would facilitate the transfer of the player, but according to David Ornstein, the Red Devils’ interest in him has cooled down.
