The Red Devils were accused early in the transfer window of not putting their feet in the transfer market, but they’ve slowly done deals.
Tyrell Malacia Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all joined up so to this point in the season, while they’ve had a wide agreement with Barcelona regarding their transfer Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona for a short time.
In addition to their ongoing wranglings on the transfer market as well as the issue of Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to quit the club for free due to his ‘loyalty this club’. There’s been an entire year you know.
However, Man Utd may be moving towards the right direction in another transfer market , with Goal Brasil insisting that the Premier League club are looking to advance negotiations to sign Ajax Winger Antony.
The Red Devils have ‘increased the bid for Antony over the EUR60m they’d previously offered but they haven’t yet made it to EUR80m that Ajax had’requested’.

United’s arch-rivals Liverpool are also associated to Antony as well as ex- Premier League striker Noel Whelan thinks that the Reds could be “silly” not to attempt to sign the winger, if Antony is available in the summer.
Whelan said to Football Insider: “Clubs like Liverpool aren’t able to remain in a rut. They don’t purchase players to make a profit. Klopp is likely to be considering certain players to boost his squad further.
“I believe it won’t hinder the path for players such as Carvalho as well as Elliott. In fact, it puts further pressure on them and be successful in the form of a Liverpool shirt.
“You are looking for the best players around the world Today, Antony is being sought by the top club in Europe. It’s depth in the squad. If a player with his attributes is available and Liverpool have the funds they’d be foolish to not add him.”
