Manchester United advised Erik ten Hag from making any more ‘Ajax’ signings after deals for Antony and Lisandro Martinez, it has been claimed.
The Dutchman had also been hoping to reunite with Sergino Dest at Old Trafford. However, the USA international is likely to leave Barcelona for AC Milan on loan instead
Manchester United have had a fruitful transfer window as the clock ticks down.
Antony’s move to Old Trafford was officially confirmed on Thursday morning, with the Brazil international following Casemiro, Martinez, Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia to the club.
