With the transfer window all set to shut down on 31st August, every team is scrambling to complete their ongoing deals. Manchester United, England’s one of the greatest football clubs, is going through a tough time after having fallen off the pinnacle of the sport. The 13 times Premier League winner, Manchester United, currently cannot even get into the top four of English football, that’s how bad their fall has been.
Their current season started on a historic low as they lost both of their first two matches to end up at the bottom of the points table. Contrary to everyone’s expectations though, they defeated their arch-rivals, Liverpool, in the next match.
This win has put springs in the steps of Manchester United, who now look like getting their club back on track. The English team had earlier signed Casemiro from Real Madrid in a £70m deal and now look to bolster their attack even further.
Antony, an Ajax winger has been linked to United for quite some while now, and his signing looks imminent. The 22-year-old meanwhile has gone AWOL (Away on leave) and declines to play for Ajax. Meanwhile, Ajax has declined Manchester UNited’s offer for Antony.

Recently Manchester United former player Paul Scholes has come out and made some statements about the player that have not gone down well with Ajax fans.
Talking to BT Sport Paul Scholes said, “You expect him to want to leave Ajax to come to Manchester United, of course, you would.”
“The manager has done it, a couple of players have done it. I think you have to ignore the money these days, I just think the money is ridiculous for every single player. He looks talented and we can all sit here and say it’s probably a little bit too much for him but as I say I just think is crazy these days.”
“I feel a bit for the lad because he obviously wants to come for Manchester United one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
“He’s at a good club in Ajax don’t get me wrong but this is where, this a real club, this is a proper football club where he’ll be seen around the world. He’s got great skills and it’s a player that the manager likes, he’s had him. I do feel a little bit sorry for the player but we’ll see what happens.”
His comments claiming Manchester United to be a “proper football club” has been criticised by many fans on social media.
