Manchester United are close to making their first summer signing as representative fly to Amsterdam to complete Antony’s deal.

Manchester United are close on making their first summer signing as they prepare to get Ajax winger Antony.

The Brazilian has been on the radar of the Red Devils since the former Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag moved to the club.

The Manchester United target, Antony has drawn interest from top European team including Tottenham hotspur.

United officials are due in Amsterdam to get a deal for the Brazilian over the line, according to The Sun.

Antony could be keen to follow in the footsteps of former boss ten Hag, who he personally thanked after departing the Dutch giants.

The Brazilian posted on Instagram: “I want to thank you for everything you taught me. Know that I will always stand with you if you need me.”

Ten Hag, who has already begun work at United, is embarking on a difficult rebuild at the club this summer after a season in which much of the squad struggled to live up to the standards expected at the club.

A number of players, including Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic, have already announced they will be leaving the club this summer with others expected to follow them out of the door.

Antony could be the first part of United’s rebuild this summer with plenty of work to be done as they look to put their miserable campaign behind them that saw them finish sixth in the Premier League.

The Dutch boss is also targeting Ajax centre-backs Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez as well as Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong.
