Even though Manchester United just signed Antony a year ago, a recent rumor from Fichajes suggests that the club is already contemplating trading him. The 23-year-old has not performed to the level that the club and its supporters had hoped for. Furthermore, he may be leaving during the approaching summer period.
During his time at Ajax, Antony became a household name. In the summer of 2020, he signed up with the Dutch club. In the Netherlands, he flourished and eventually became very successful. In 82 games over two years, the 23-year-old started 82 of them and contributed 46 goals.
Antony, a 23-year-old attacker who Manchester United signed from Ajax a year ago, is reportedly on the transfer list
He had 24 goals and assisted on 22 more. Due to his impressive play last season, several teams competed to sign Antony for the next campaign. Manchester United were victorious in their pursuit of him. They were able to buy him for €95 million. He was much sought after by United’s new manager, Erik Ten Hag. As a matter of fact, the club was able to grant his wish. The Dutch coach has done well enough in his debut season. However, his expensive new player, Antony, hasn’t lived up to the hype.

In his first year with the club, Ten Hag was able to bring home a championship trophy. To top it all off, he has kept United in the hunt for a playoff spot until the very end of the season. It’s still unclear, however, whether he’ll be able to win enough games to qualify for the Champions League. So far, his priority signing hasn’t paid off in the way he hoped. The 23-year-old’s overall match participation is 45, and his goal contributions are 15. As of now, he has 10 goals and 5 assists in the win column.
The expected influence he would have on the group has not materialized. And, less than a year after signing him, the club is already debating whether to retain him or let him depart
His goal-scoring stats are respectable, but they fall short of what was hoped for after United spent so much money on him. The expected influence he would have on the group has not materialized. And, less than a year after signing him, the club is already debating whether to retain him or let him depart. If United decides to release the 23-year-old, they will likely not recoup the large sum they spent on him. Which football team Antony joins for the next season is, therefore, intriguing.
French team Rennes has loaned forward Andy Diouf to Swiss club FC Basel. Liverpool reportedly wants to recruit the 20-year-old at the conclusion of the season after being pleased with his play for Basel, as reported by Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness).
The extremely skilled center midfielder will be an asset in terms of both command and inspiration. He has contributed three goals and six assists this season. He could be interested in playing in the Premier League because of this. Playing in England’s Premier League against the sport’s best players might hasten his growth.
