Forward of the Brazilian team is target of Manchester United. Ajax has already rejected Antony’s proposal
Manchester United want Antony. And, apparently, Antony wants Manchester United. The striker, who belongs to Ajax, from the Netherlands, was not included for the match against Sparta Rotterdam, in the third round of the Dutch Championship.
In a press conference, the Ajax coach, Alfred Schreuder, said that the player’s absence is justified: Antony is not focused on the club.
“Antony is not in the team. I spoke to him, and he told me he didn’t feel 100% ready to play. I just want players on the team who are 100% focused on Ajax. The most important thing is that I had a good conversation with him. and I was very clear,” Schreuder told ESPN.
striker wants to leave
Manchester United offered 80 million euros (R$416 million) to Ajax to sign Antony. However, the proposal was rejected. The Dutch want 100 million euros to release the striker of the Brazilian team.
Faced with this imbroglio, the player granted an interview and said that he “did not see himself staying in Holland”, indicating the desire for a transfer.
Antony is a name directly requested by Red Devils coach Erik ten Hag, who worked with the forward.
