It has already become a custom in the European transfer market to see completely crazy transfers. Liverpool was crazy for Darwin Núñez, despite his tremendous performances with Sporting Benfica, paying 75 million euros plus 25 in variables for a total of 100 million. Past seasons, Jack Grealish left Aston Villa for Manchester City at a price of less than 120 million euros. Madness in the Premier League.
Now a new one will come. Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United has gradually improved its season after two wins in a row, and as if that were not enough, one against Liverpool at Old Trafford in the England classic. However, ten Hag wants to continue improving his level, and for this, he seeks to arm himself in the best way in these last days in the market.
An endless novel by Cristiano Ronaldo who has not been a recurring starter with Erik ten Hag, but for now, he will continue at Manchester United. The ‘Red Devils’ want to close the hiring of Antony, an old acquaintance for the Dutch strategist who directed him at Ajax in Amsterdam. An impressive right winger, but more impression is made by the amount the English are willing to give. It will be 100 million euros.
According to The Athletic, last Friday, Ajax Amsterdam rejected an offer of 90 million euros. For this very reason, Manchester United would have raised the proposal to 100 million. Antony hasn’t played for the Dutch in days, so his arrival in England could be finalized quickly. For the club from the Netherlands, despite the great and important player that he is, they see him well. Selling him would mean getting 243 million euros in this transfer window, but it is no secret to anyone that, without his pieces, he will be weakened for a tough Champions League against Liverpool, Napoli and Rangers.
