- Ajax want higher price but Brazilian forward wants to leave
- ‘I am ready to follow my story and my dreams,’ says Antony
Manchester United had a bid of €90m (£76.3m) for Antony rejected by Ajax on Friday, with the Dutch club wanting a higher price for the forward.
Ajax had in recent days turned down an €80m United offer for the 22-year-old. The Brazil international, who played under Erik ten Hag at Ajax, is keen to join United and is understood to be disappointed that his club did not accept Friday’s bid. He reiterated to Ajax on Friday his desire to make the move.
