Manchester United are ready to bring their interest in Ajax winger Antony back to life and make a blockbuster approach for Erik ten Hag's priority attacking target. The Red Devils are set to launch their final push for Antony in the coming days amid a dramatic end to the summer transfer window.Related articles Ronaldo 'offered' Man Utd exit route as fairytale move comes to light Aubameyang transfer 'preference' clear as Man Utd challenge Chelsea
United had hoped to reunite Ten Hag with the 22-year-old after their successful relationship in the Netherlands earlier this summer. However, Ajax inflated their asking price from £68million to £84m to signify that he wasn't for sale this summer after losing several other key first-team stars.
But just as United's pursuit was seemingly dead and buried, there could be hope for Ten Hag and supporters desperate for attacking reinforcements yet. According to Sky Sports, the club are back in for Antony and will present a 'massive offer' to Ajax this week.
Whether United's fresh approach will meet the Dutch Eredivisie champions' demands remains to be seen, especially considering the lack of time they would have to find a worthy replacement. However, it could persuade them to cash in on their headline star if it's worth significantly higher than the initial attempt.
United have already done business with Ajax this summer, luring Lisandro Martinez to Old Trafford in a £57m deal. The tenacious central defender's desire to leave for the Premier League was crucial in pushing the move through, and Antony may have to make similar moves if he is to reunite with Ten Hag in England.
The Brazilian left viewers in awe over his role in Ajax's 6-1 win over FC Groningen at the weekend, firing in a long-range goal and providing an assist before half-time. He also showcased incredible skill - especially at one particular moment when he beat three opponents at once to enter the box - to show United exactly what they'd be missing.Casemiro's 'Man Utd stance' emerges as United make private admission
Ten Hag is desperate for at least one attacking signing as past of FIVE potential deals before the September 1 transfer deadline. The Telegraph report United will also try to sign two midfielders, a right-back and a goalkeeper to bolster the Dutchman's squad for the season ahead.
The club have disappointed in their first window of Ten Hag's reign, providing him with just three new names before the campaign got underway at the start of the month. But they could make up for it with ambitious movements in the final 14 days. A push for Antony would be exactly that.
