Fabrizio Romano names Man Utd transfer priority after scheduling Casemiro medical

Manchester United are poised for a busy end to the transfer window after leaving much of their business for the final stretch, with manager Erik ten Hag keen to strengthen his squad after a disastrous start to the season.

United are winless after two games and have moved quickly to bolster the midfielder after last weekend’s defeat to Brentford, with Real Madrid and Brazil star Casemiro set to join imminently.

The 30-year-old’s move to United has accelerated quickly and leading transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that a medical has been scheduled ahead of his proposed transfer.

The deal to sign Casemiro was not completed in time for him to feature against Liverpool on Monday evening but as per Romano, he could be in the stands to watch the game.

Furthermore, Romano has confirmed that Ajax winger Antony is now United’s transfer priority after seemingly sealing the Casemiro deal.

Antony has been the subject of interest from United all summer but an €80m bid was rejected by the Amsterdam club earlier this year. The failed proposal was followed by the 22-year-old skipping training on Friday.

As per Romano, Antony is keen on a move to Old Trafford but PSV Eindhoven winger is also of interest. The Dutchman is a cheaper option and his representatives are in contact with United.

SN’s verdict….
Antony would undeniably be a quality addition to the United squad but the figures mentioned are scarily high. After having a generous bid of €80m rejected by Ajax, it remains to be seen whether United continue to pursue this deal.

It does, however, seem like Antony’s head has been turned. Missing training the day after being priced out of a move is hardly a good look either.

Ten Hag signed Antony in 2020 and has helped develop him into one of the most potent wingers in the game but Ajax are making their proposed reunion difficult.

  1. F. Romano and the Barça journalists really work hard to defend Barca’s reputation in the de yong saga. However, what are UTD journalists doing for the worldwide UTD fan to protect UTD reputation?

    1. At this juncture, in view of the situation as it was, and as it is now, MU has to bite the bullet, if they appear to be fools, so be it to be fools then – sign up Antony at whatever price Ajax named. What’s the price is more than to languish again, without CL football. There cant be any more smarter actions.
