Man United have reportedly given incoming manager Erik ten Hag the greenlight to sign Ajax star Antony. Ten Hag is in a pole position to take charge at Old Trafford as United’s permanent manager having already reached an agreement with the Manchester club.
The Dutchman is expected to receive significant backing during the summer transfer window as he bids to build a formidable squad that can challenge for titles.
Erik ten Hag wants to sign Ajax star Antony for Man United
Metro UK reports Ten Hag has already assessed the current Man United squad and has already identified the key areas that need strengthening.
According to the publication, the Ajax boss has identified the right-wing as an area of priority and has set his sights on signing Antony from Ajax. The Sun claims the Brazilian winger could attract a fee in the region of £50m, with United expected to bank on their previous relationship with Ajax to secure his services.
Ten Hag is understood to be keen to sign players that are accustomed to his style of play and Antony has been identified as an ideal candidate who would fill the right-wing position which United have failed to find a solution for.
