The Red Devils could complete the signing of Antony this week if Ajax accept their second offer. He would become Ten Hag’s fifth addition this summer, following Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro through the door at Old Trafford. But United are currently light in attack, with just four established first-team forwards at the Dutchman’s disposal.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s future is still up in the air, potentially leaving Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho as options with at least one full senior season under their belts. Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho are also first-teamers, but Antony will provide both promise and elite quality to his former boss’ ranks.
