Manchester United investigated a possible transfer for Everton winger Anthony Gordon before opting to prioritise a move for Antony from Ajax.
United fans will be delighted with this decision because there is no denying that Antony has a higher ceiling than Gordon, even if the Brazilian has yet to experience Premier League football.
The report indicates that a move to Chelsea now looks less likely because of the substantial difference between the club’s valuations of Gordon, which is believed to be approximately £60 million.
Meanwhile, The Mirror claims Everton are desperate to keep the youngster after seemingly pricing him out of a move this summer.
The Toffees want to ensure that, if he is to leave, Everton will have enough money in the transfer kitty to buy a replacement and strengthen the squad.
Chelsea spent similar money on Marc Cucurella.
