Dear Ten Hag, MU’s rumored target is seriously injured

 Antony is one of the best strikers in the Eredivisie at Ajax Amsterdam. However, his promotion will be interrupted.

Antony’s great season for Ajax

According to Ajax’s announcement, the Brazilian player will be sidelined for the next few weeks. Coach Erik ten Hag will not be available for Antony until at least the end of April. In the worst case scenario, the season might even be over for the South American star.

Antony injured his ankle while serving with the national team against Bolivia in a World Cup qualifier last week. He was taken off the field on a stretcher. According to Ajax Amsterdam, the injury is “more serious than initially thought.”

 

Transfer - Football

 Ten Hag will be without Antony’s services in the coming weeks.

Many top clubs such as Barcelona and Bayern Munich are said to be interested in Antony. Antony moves from Sao Paulo to Amsterdam in 2020 for a fee of 15.75 million euros. The bonuses can increase the transfer fee up to 21.75 million euros.

Antony is ranked 5th on Ajax’s transfer record list. If all bonuses are paid, he will become the second most expensive signing in the club’s history after Sebastien Haller (22.5 million euros).

During the time Erik ten Hag was rumored to be with Manchester United, Antony was arguably the player he most wanted to bring back to Old Trafford. This trauma will be able to change the situation.
