Man Utd ready to listen to transfer offers on £86m flop but face an eye-watering loss

Antony has failed to hit the heights expected of him at Manchester United and Sir Jim Ratcliffe is now ready to sell the underperforming Brazilian as part of a major cull

Manchester United would be willing to sell Antony as part of a brutal fire sale under Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

The Brazilian winger signed for the Red Devils in summer 2022 for £86m from Ajax but has failed to match expectations.

He has scored just nine goals in 70 appearances for the club, while his minutes have also dried up over recent weeks.

Antony has over three years left on the contract that he signed when moving from Ajax. The 24-year-old has recently fallen out of favour under Erik ten Hag.

The United boss recently warned Antony over his form. Asked why Omari Forson started over the Brazilian against Fulham, the Dutchman replied: “It was nothing to do with fitness. He is fit but we have many options on the right side where we lack in other positions due to injuries.

“The form Antony is in we all have seen and he has to step up. I see it in training, but also Omari [Forson] and Amad Diallo and Garnacho deserve to play.”

Ten Hag had also suggested that others had simply moved ahead of Antony in the pecking order. Speaking ahead of the defeat against Fulham, he said: “He has to prove a point, that he will do.

“And he has big potential. He hasn’t shown it lately, but I know what his talent is, and it’s about proving his talent, and it’s about him. And, yeah, he will probably get his opportunities, right? But, yeah, I think that was always the idea.
