Manchester United Transfer News: Antony was not present at Ajax training as he makes his transfer stance clear

Manchester United Transfer News: The Manchester United target Antony was not there when Ajax’s preseason workouts resumed on Friday under new boss Alfred Schreuder.

The winger is eager to work with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford after two years of training under him. Because of his success in Amsterdam, the new United manager was always going to look to the Dutch superpowers for recruitment. Most likely to follow him would be Antony.

Given that Ajax has so far kept all of the talents that were on Ten Hag’s radar, the Brazilian appears to be moving forward with his transfer. Jurrien Timber chooses to stay in the Netherlands. However, Antony seems to have a different opinion and wants his club to sign him even though they are demanding £69 million.

Ajax’s demand is the latest setback in a summer that has been incredibly painful because Ten Hag’s rebuilding project has yet to get off the ground. Initially, United thought they could sign the winger for roughly £40 million.

As Schreuder stated to ESPN: “We want Antony to stay at Ajax. The club is aware of my desire to work with him.”

Despite this, the Brazilian hinted at a potential reunion by posting an emotional letter to his former boss after his departure. He stated: “For everything you taught me, I want to express my gratitude. Please know that I am here for you whenever you need me.”

Ajax has the edge

Ajax is in a good financial situation. This gives them the upper hand in any negotiations over potential exits. Sebastian Haller has joined Borussia Dortmund. Ryan Gravenberch has already been allowed to leave for Bayern Munich. The Dutch team earned about £50 million from their transactions.

In 32 appearances last season, Antony scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists. The number would have been a bit more if not for the injury at the back end of the season.

Edinson Cavani departed United. Anthony Martial could potentially do the same. Marcus Rashford must also demonstrate that he can regain his best form.

Last season, Cristiano Ronaldo was largely relied upon to deliver in the final third, and he will need assistance if United is to return to the Champions League. Despite seeing a number of players leave the club, including Paul Pogba, Ten Hag has failed to make a signing.

His major priority is Frenkie De Jong, but the Dutchman, who previously worked with Ten Hag at Ajax, is steadfastly based in Barcelona despite protracted negotiations.

As preseason draws to a close, the club is even more in need of signing Antony to kick off their summer. The dearth of transfer activity is frustrating United supporters, and they must be expecting a signing soon.
