THREE (3) Best Ways Man United Could Line Up With Antony Amid Ajax Strike

If Manchester United signs Antony this summer, they would have three possible lineups to choose from. According to reports in the Netherlands, despite being at Ajax’s facilities on Friday, the 22-year-old did not participate in practice.

Whether or not he is injured is unknown at this time, but according to De Telegraaf, Ajax turned down a €80 million offer from United for the Brazilian.

This has given rise to rumors that the player is “striking” to finalize a transfer to the Premier League. Although he was unable to reassure the Ajax supporters, Antony stated in an interview with De Telegraaf that he would still be interested in staying in Amsterdam.

Here is how United might set up with him in the lineup should he opt to transfer to Manchester.

 

Erik ten Hag’s choice to use Antony on the right of the forward three is the most likely one. Ten Hag would put him in this position while managing Ajax, making the 22-year-old feel most at home.

Due to his left foot, he would be able to cut inside and provide United with a different attacking threat than they now have. Jadon Sancho would be replaced by Antony if he joined the team, and the Brazilian winger is likely to pose the greatest threat to Sancho.

 

Antony in without Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Old Trafford is a very real prospect for United if Antony moves in. Without Ronaldo, Anthony Martial would undoubtedly start as the center forward at this point.

The third and last member of the front line, Rashford, would then be positioned behind the Ajax player in his right wing position, ahead of Jadon Sancho. With Ronaldo’s future uncertain, this starting XI might be the most likely of the three combinations.
