REPORTS: Manchester United submit £51m for highly-rated Brazilian attacker

Antony, a Brazilian attacking midfielder, has been offered £51 million by Manchester United's Erik Ten Hag. based on reports, it appears.

He is valued at around £70 million by Dutch heavyweights, however.

Former Ajax manager wants to reconcile with the Brazilian forward he brought in two years ago from Sau Paulo.

However, the Manchester-based outfit's initial bid is likely to be rejected because it is significantly lower than Antony's stated asking price.

There is a good chance that the Amsterdam club will be reluctant to sacrifice one of their precious assets after losing key players like Mazraoui, Gravenberch, and Sebastian Haller during the summer transfer window.

Ten Hag's assault would benefit from the addition of Antony following Cristiano Ronaldo's alleged refusal to join the rest of the group for pre-season training.

What's more, the Dutch tactician had his eye on Samba star Ronaldo this summer, regardless of his future with Real Madrid.

The Red Devils' offensive line is lacking a brilliant left footer who can cut inside off the right, provide assists and score goals with the England international Mason Greenwood still suspended over rape, assault and violence allegations. Juan Mata also left after his contract expired last month.

Ajax have signed the £19,000-a-week player until 2025, and he has 22 goals and 20 assists from 79 appearances across all competitions.
