In order to complete his £84 million transfer, Man Utd target Antony MISSES Ajax’s Eredivisie match in Utrecht.

Ajax omitted Antony from their Eredivisie matchday squad for their match against Utrecht as the attacker attempts to finalise a transfer to Manchester United before the deadline next week.

United is waiting to see how the Ajax board meeting goes before resubmitting their £74 million offer for the 22-year-old Brazilian after having it rejected on Friday.

Antony is hoping that Ajax’s financial officers would see the worth in accepting such a high offer, as the Dutch club thinks that United will make a second offer closer to £84 million.

Because he and his agents are worried that this opportunity won’t arise again, Antony has made it clear to the team that he intends to go by refusing to practice.

Leaving Ajax coach Alfred Schreuder little choice but to leave the young star out of today’s trip to Utrecht.

Erik ten Hag has made Antony one of his top targets over the summer, but the club are considering alternatives if a deal can’t be done with the Dutch side.

A move for former star Memphis Depay has been ruled out, but there remains some interest in Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic. However, the Blues would prefer a sale rather than a loan deal.

The club are keen to add two forwards and a goalkeeper before Thursday’s deadline, with hopes that an agreement can be reached with Newcastle for goalie Martin Dubravka.

There is also still speculation on the future of Cristiano Ronaldo and if the Portuguese star will leave the club this week.

The 37-year-old started as a substitute United in their 1-0 win over Southampton on Saturday, but did come off the bench to make a late cameo in the second half.

Ten Hag insisted after their win at St Mary’s that he still wants Ronaldo to stay and that he is happy with the strikers he currently has.

Ajax meanwhile are looking at replacements in the event of Antony moving to Old Trafford. With Roma’s Justin Kluivert and Aston Villa’s Anwar El Ghazi both been discussed by the club following the collapse of a deal for Hakim Ziyech with Chelsea.
