Manchester United’s decision to sign Antony from Ajax is ‘still on the table’, sources tell talkSPORT.
The Red Devils are looking to strengthen their attacking line this summer as Erik ten Hag looks to rebuild the team in his image.
The 22-year-old Ajax star has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford since Ten Hag’s appointment.
The links had cooled in recent weeks with suggestions United were looking elsewhere after seeing a £51m offer turned down.
However, talkSPORT understands that is not the case.
Speaking on White and Jordan, transfer insider Alex Crook said: “I got some information on a player we talked about before, Antony at Ajax.
“There have been a lot of reports that Manchester United’s interest in him has ended. I was under the impression last week that a move for him would only be a target if Cristiano Ronaldo were to leave.
“That may not be the case.

“I have had information from a very reliable source that Manchester United are still looking to bring Antony to the Premier League.
“Erik ten Hag is a big admirer of his qualities and thinks he can add something to his Manchester United rebuild.
“They don’t have an exact price yet, but the price discussed in the Netherlands is 70 million euros, slightly less than that.
“But the message I got is that Antony at Manchester United is still very active and therefore one to watch for the rest of the transfer window.”
