Manchester United are reportedly ready to table a “massive offer” for Ajax forward Antony, in order to secure the signing of the major target.

United’s summer transfer window has not been all too successful. As is often the case, the Red Devils have been linked with a host of big names.

Some of the players they have reportedly targeted include: Frenkie de Jong, Cody Gakpo and Timo Werner, among plenty of others. However, they have not managed to secure any of those signings.

In fact, United have made just three additions to their squad during the window. They have signed Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen.

They are still being linked with potential moves for Casemiro and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Another star who they might yet sign is Ajax’s Antony.

Earlier this summer, Erik ten Hag’s side were reported to be interested. However, as Ajax have lost a number of players, they put a high value on their star.

That value – reportedly in the region of £80million – was seemingly deemed too much for United to pay.

However, Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth has reported that United are planning on going back in for the Brazilian.

He claims that the Red Devils are plotting a “massive offer” for the forward.

Indeed, since they have not signed the stars that they were tracking earlier in the window, they may now be more willing to pay what Ajax are demanding.

Attacking spark needed and Antony fits bill

Antony seems just the type of player that United have been crying out for in the opening stages of the season. After the first two games of the 2022/23 season, United are on zero points, having lost both games.

What’s more, they have scored just one goal, and it was an own goal. With that being said, adding an attacking talent like Antony seems a must.

The Brazilian has contributed to 46 goals in his 82 games so far at Ajax. What’s more, he has gotten off to a flier this season, netting twice and providing two assists in three games.

It seems he could help United to get back in the goals, and quickly, should they sign him, and they will hope they can do just that.
