“90% Complete…” Reporter Claims United Are Closing In On Deal For South American Ace

Manchester United are “pushing” hard to sign Ajax winger Antony, according to journalist Pedro Almeida.

The Portuguese reporter believes that the Brazilian international has already “informed” his club that he wants to join his former manager Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford and that a deal is close to being done:

It should be pointed out that Almeida isn’t the most reliable of sources so it’s probably wise to take this information with a large pinch of salt. Even so, a number of other journalists have confirmed that United are genuinely interested in Antony. Other teams, such as Chelsea and Liverpool, have scouted the 22-year-old, but the Red Devils appear to be favourites for his signature.

The winger is thought to be on the list of targets that ten Hag is considering as he looks to strengthen his options in attack. However, at the moment, the main focus continues to be on recruiting at least one midfielder, and there is talk that the club will also prioritise signing a centre-half and a right-back.
