Man Utd are reportedly yet to offer enough to be taken seriously.

Erik ten Hag worked with Antony at his former club and wants the 22-year-old to follow him in making the move to Old Trafford.

However Ajax are playing hardball as they are reluctant to let their former manager to raid their squad.

Antony enjoyed a fantastic season last time out scoring 12 goals and assisting a further ten. He is one of Ten Hag’s preferred transfer targets.

Meanwhile, De Telegraaf also claim that United have received a positive update regarding striker Brobbey.

The 20-year-old left Ajax to join RB Leipzig last summer but the Dutch club want to bring him back.

However if negotiations drag on too long, Man Utd could reportedly swoop in and hijack the deal.

Brobbey is a talented young striker who shone at Ajax but his minutes were limited at RB Leipzig and he is yet to score for the club.

A £42million offer was made by Man Utd but it was rejected, Martinez is eager for Ajax to negotiate with them to secure the move.
