Man United set to launch £85m offer for exciting attacker

Not only are Manchester United on the verge of announcing the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid, but according to recent reports, the Red Devils are set to launch a massive offer for Ajax winger Antony.

That’s according to a recent report from French journalist Santi Aouna, who claims Erik ten Hag is so desperate to be reunited with his former attacker that his new employers are set to launch an eye-watering €100m (£85m) bid.
