Ajax winger, Antony Matheus dos Santos, simply known as Antony, is now ‘determined’ to join Manchester United after his club set a high asking price tag on him.
Manchester United has been linked with a move for Antony this summer since Erik ten Hag joined the Red Devils.
Ten Hag, who coached the 22-year-old at Ajax, is keen on bolstering his attacking options ahead of the new season.
Antony thrived under Ten Hag at Ajax last season, scoring 12 goals and registering ten assists in the Eredivisie.
Man United have already made an approach to Ajax about the Brazilian, but the Dutch champions have made it clear that they want a fee in excess of €70m (£60m) for the player.
According to multiple reports, Antony is pushing to join Man United this summer, but Ajax are ready to stand firm and have made it clear they want no more high-profile departures after Ryan Gravenberch and Sebastien Haller.
The report added that Man United were hopeful that a £40m package would have been enough to tempt Ajax to sell Antony.
