Man Utd ‘launch £51m bid for Antony but Ajax set to REJECT Erik ten Hag's offer as Dutch giants hold out for £20m more’ | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly seen a bid rejected for transfer target Antony, according to reports.

The skilful winger played under new Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag at Ajax.

And the Dutchman wants Antony to follow him to Old Trafford ahead of the new season.

According to Goal, Man Utd tabled a bid worth £51million for Brazil international Antony, but the offer was turned down with Ajax holding out for more.

The Dutch champions would like to collect a fee closer to £68m, putting United nearly £20m short of the valuation.

However, Antony's representatives are pushing for the Amsterdam-based side to sell the forward for a lower prize to get a deal done with United.
