Man Utd fans think Antony transfer is "confirmed" as he sends message to Ten Hag

Manchester United fans have suggested that a deal for Ajax star Antony has already been "confirmed" after his latest message to Erik ten Hag.

The Dutchman is preparing to become the new manager at Old Trafford after beating Mauricio Pochettino to the job and he is set to be bankrolled in the summer. There are several problematic areas of the squad, including in defence and up front.

But another position that Ten Hag wants to bolster is his options out wide where the Red Devils have lacked a tinge of panache. That is even with Jadon Sancho, who has had a difficult first season back in England.

One player that has been strongly linked is Ajax star Antony, who has been transformed into a real gem of a player under Ten Hag's tutelage in Amsterdam. The Brazilian has convinced fans that he will follow him to Old Trafford after he said in a video message: "Know that I will always stand with you if you need me."

One fan said: "My boy just sent out an open invitation to Ten Haag and Manchester United." While another tweeted: "One of us."

Another went so far as to say: "Antony to @ManUtd confirmed." And a fourth said: "Antony thirsty for that move lol."

One supporter tweeted with a picture of Antony, captioned: "ManUtd, are you still there? C'mon, go pull this man from there." While another said: "That's enough for me. GET IT DONE."

Ten Hag is set to arrive at United next week after managing Ajax for the final time while he has admitted that he had other options before taking the Old Trafford job. “I had chances to work at a different club, with a better foundation,” he told De Telegraaf.

“But I chose United. Things have to get addressed there and that’s a challenge. The club and I are on the same wavelength about how I want to do this.”
