Man Utd quoted hefty fee to land Antony

United unlikely to move for Antony


Manchester United have been told to pay around £84m to sign Ajax winger Antony this summer, Fabrizio Romano claims.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the Brazilian in recent months, but a deal looks difficult at the moment.

They had a verbal offer of around £50m rejected last month, and Ajax are now looking for at least £84m to sanction his sale.

That represents a huge outlay for an unproven Premier League star, and Romano claims that a deal is unlikely for now.

Antony has just returned from a long-term ankle injury, and United are reluctant to pay a hefty fee for his signature.

Hence, they could delay their pursuit until next summer, and we could see United pursue a cheaper alternative for now.

Chelsea‘s Hakim Ziyech has recently emerged as a target for Erik ten Hag, but it is unclear the United board will back him.

Ziyech made 14 goal contributions for Chelsea last term, but he is now out-of-favour. He could be prised away for £25m.
