After making a few bids for Antony throughout the summer, which were immediately rejected, Manchester United started to look for cheaper alternatives in the transfer market despite him being Erik ten Hag’s priority to reinforce the attack of the team. However, after the shocking start of the season, the club’s board decided to go all out for the player.

Yesterday, it was reported by David Ornstein and Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic, that the Red Devils made an incredible €80 million bid to Ajax for Antony. This amount of money is way more than what they were previously offering the Amsterdam club. Despite this, the Dutch giants still turned down the offer because they count on the footballer for this season.

Nevertheless, it looks like Antony wants the move to happen after he skipped today’s training just one day after his club rejected a huge amount of money for him from Manchester United. For this reason, the English club is now preparing a new offer of €80 million fixed plus €20 million in add-ons, in a deal that could reach €100 million, as per Santi Aouna from Foot Mercato.

It was reported by Mike Verweij, who is very close to Ajax, that the 22-year-old winger left yesterday’s training ground extremely fit, but after missing out on today’s session, he could be letting his anger show with the administration. The reporter also claims that the Godenzonen are already closing on Hakim Ziyech as Antony’s substitute in the right-wing position.

Antony will speak out

Mike Verweij announced on Twitter that he will have an exclusive interview with Antony tomorrow that will be published in De Telegraaf from the Nederlands. Hopefully the young Brazilian will talk clearly about the situation that is happening at Ajax and say if he wants to join Manchester United this summer or not, so the club can move on.
