Manchester United plan to approach Ajax again for Antony before the end of the window. Deal considered more than difficult, as Ajax want to keep him – but Man Utd will try again.

Essentially, Gakpo is Manchester United’s alternative to Antony, a priority transfer target who has been priced out of the club’s reach.

Cody Gakpo remains easier option in the list – as Pulisic loan depends on Todd Boehly.

The Times reported a move for Antony would set United back around £70 million. There were even claims Ajax could increase this demand. It was time to step away.

There is a good argument Cody Gakpo is a better player at a substantially cheaper cost.

Gakpo better than Antony

Manchester United would be signing a player nearly twice as prolific at half the cost. The Telegraph report there is a £35 million asking price.

Gakpo made a huge impact last season for PSV, scoring the goal which secured the KNVB Cup final against Ajax. Antony missed the game through injury.

Gakpo’s 36 goals and assists in all competitions eclipses Antony’s 22, and at a cheaper price, there is a lot to like about this deal.
