Manchester United are making headway in their pursuit of Ajax winger Antony as his agent has travelled to the United Kingdom for official negotiations.
Erik ten Hag is keen to reunite with his former player this summer transfer window and a fee of £68million has been mooted for the Brazil international, 22. United were handed a major boost earlier this week as Ajax appeared to sign a direct replacement for Antony in the form of Portuguese forward Francisco Conceicao.
Having failed with a £51million bid for the Sao Paulo native at the start of July, Old Trafford chiefs must decide whether they stump up more cash to meet the Amsterdam giants’ valuation. In the meantime, the Red Devils are set to hold talks with one of Antony’s agents with a view to agreeing personal terms.
