Antony: Manchester United close to agreeing deal near £85m with Ajax for Brazilian winger

Manchester United are close to agreeing a deal with Ajax for forward Antony.

United’s latest offer is thought to be close to the €100m (£85m) fee wanted by Ajax, a price which includes add-ons.

Antony was once again left out of the Ajax squad for Sunday’s game at Utrecht as talks between the clubs continued.


Personal terms are not thought to be a problem in this deal, which is expected to accelerate in the next 24 to 48 hours.

United have been chasing the 22-year-old for several weeks and also saw a £67.9m (€80m) offer rebuffed by the club earlier this week.

United have looked at other options as well. They have an interest in Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and continue to keep an eye on his situation. Chelsea have been in talks over signing Aubameyang.

United’s interest remains in PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo. Signing both Antony and Gakpo has been described as “unlikely but not impossible”.
