Manchester United are leading the race to sign Ajax forward Antony, according to the betting markets at least.
It sounds like United are the only side really in the hunt for the Brazilian’s signature this summer, especially with Tottenham Hotspur switching their attention to Richarlison from Everton.
Here’s a look at the markets as of now (subject to change):
- Manchester United – ¼
- AC Milan – 16/1
- Arsenal – 20/1
- Tottenham – 20/1
- Barcelona – 33/1
Let’s focus on securing De Jong first
I know United fans will be eager about the next signing whenever Frenkie de Jong completes his move to Old Trafford, but there is no way I’m expecting any progress on the Antony deal until we know how much has to be paid upfront for the Netherlands midfielder.
United haven’t got money to burn through anymore – as we discussed on the latest podcast with Phil Brown.
It’s time we wise up in the transfer market. Starting now!
