Antony remains the higher-priority transfer but Mexico star Alvarez is also on United’s radar – along with Chelsea’s and Barcelona’s.

SunSport revealed overnight that United are close to landing a £40million deal for the Amsterdam-club’s winger Antony.

Meanwhile, traffic police in Majorca have launched an investigation after Cristiano Ronaldo’s £1.7m Bugatti Veyron crashed into a wall on the island.

It did not seem to matter a jot to the world’s most-famous athlete though, as he danced for his niece’s TikTok.

And the Red Devils have reportedly made a formal approach to sign Christian Eriksen on a free transfer.

  • Christian Eriksen ‘undecided’

    Manchester United transfer target Christian Eriksen is still undecided on his future.

    That’s according to Brentford boss Thomas Frank who hopes to retain Eriksen’s services next season after his loan spell.

    Frank told AS: “I know we still have a chance and I hope he will make a decision in two weeks.

    “The agreement is that he will call me and tell me what he wants to do. He hasn’t decided yet”

  • Ajax to discuss Alvarez move

    Ajax could now be willing to ‘negotiate’ a price for Manchester United transfer target Edson Alvarez .

    New United manager Erik ten Hag fancies reuniting with Alvarez after leaving the Dutch champions.

    According to De Telegraaf journalist Mike Verweij, Ten Hag’s old club are prepared to discuss a possible fee for selling the 24-year-old midfielder.

    In contrast, it’s claimed Ajax are unwilling to sell three other reported United targets Antony, Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez – except for major offers

  • Man Utd close to Antony

    Manchester United are closing in on their first major signing of the summer with Antony on his way from Ajax in a £40million move.

    According to SunSport’s Neil Custis, United officials are due in Amsterdam today to get a deal for the Brazil international over the line.

    New Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag wants his former player to start his rebuild at Old Trafford to make United competitive again at the top end of the Premier League.

    The winger had an outstanding last season with 12 goals and creating 10 assists in 33 games in all competitions for the Dutch champions.

    The 22-year-old is also full of admiration for his former manager Ten Hag who himself made the move from Ajax to United to ignite a revival of the fallen giant

  • Morning, United fans

    United could bid £60million for Porto striker Evanilson – as Erik ten Hag eyes FIVE of his old Ajax players.

    Evanilson’s agent Marcio Barros says only Brighton have so far made a formal offer for the Brazilian.

    But the 22-year-old is reportedly now one of Old Trafford chief Ten Hag’s prime targets up front.

    Ajax could now be willing to ‘negotiate’ a price for Mexico midfield anchorman Edson Alvarez.

    United are also interested in recruiting Brazil winger Antony, Holland defender Jurrien Timber and Argentina centre-back Lisandro Martinez from the Dutch giants.

    But it’s claimed Ajax will only sell any of the trio if an exceptional bid comes in.

    Most of the talk in the past 24 hours surrounds Anthony – with a £40million fee suggested.

    The fifth former Ajax star on United’s list remains Frenkie de Jong.

    But the £50m-rated Holland midfielder still seems intent on staying at Barcelona.

    Brentford playmaker is ‘undecided’ on his future – as the Red Devils and old club Tottenham hover.

    Finally, United are struggling to offload frontman Anthony Martial and central defender Eric Bailly because of their high wages.

  • Utd have ‘direct’ contact’ with Barca over De Jong

    Manchester United have reportedly had ‘direct contact’ with Barcelona over main target Frenkie de Jong.

    But the Spanish giants are said to be holding firm on their £74million valuation of the Holland midfielder.

    New Old Trafford chief Erik ten Hag is also thought to want another four of his old Ajax players.

    But those stars are all still with the Dutch champions.

  • Hard to Baill out

    United are actively trying to offload centre-back Eric Bailly.

    But they got a lukewarm response when they offered him to Newcastle.

    Having signed a new contract in April 2021 he still has two years left of his current contract.

    As with Martial, United are ready to take a hit on the 28-year-old with an asking price of just £8.5million for a player who costs them £30million from Villarreal in 2016.

  • Martial flaw

    EXCLUSIVE: Manchester United are having a nightmare trying to find a buyer for Anthony Martial due to his sky-high wages, writes NEIL CUSTIS.

    United are ready to accept a big hit on the £38.5million they paid for him with offers of around £20million ready to be heard.

    But the Frenchman’s £240,000-a-week wages are proving a massive stumbling block to any move with no club prepared to match that.

    Martial still has two years left on that deal which means United may have to agree to a pay off to get him out of Old Trafford.

    Sevilla in La Liga showed interest last season when they took him on a fourth month loan in the second-half of last season.

  • Palace tipped to win Sam race

    Manchester United and Tottenham target Sam Johnstone has reportedly agreed to join Crystal Palace on a free transfer.

    The keeper, 29, will leave West Brom when his contract expires at the end of this month.

    He joined the club from United in 2018 and has since made 167 appearances across all competitions for the Baggies.

    However, his desire to make a Premier League return meant he did not consider signing a new contract.

    And according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, he has a deal in place to join Crystal Palace.

    Johnstone, who will become Patrick Vieira’s first signing of the summer, will join Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland as an option between the sticks.

  • Utd & Spurs target Eriksen ‘undecided on future’

    Manchester United and Tottenham transfer target Christian Eriksen is still undecided on his future.

    That’s according to Brentford boss Thomas Frank who hopes to retain the Denmark midfielder’s services next season.

    Frank told AS: “I know we still have a chance and I hope he will make a decision in two weeks.

    “The agreement is that he will call me and tell me what he wants to do. He hasn’t decided yet.”

  • Anthony ‘would cost £40m’

    Ajax will demand £40million for Manchester United target Anthony.

    That’s the claim from Holland as the Brazilian reportedly tops new United chief Erik ten Hag’s list of wing targets.

    Ten Hag also fancies Edson Alvarez, Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez from his old club.

  • ‘Newcastle and Gunners head Ruiz hunt’

    Arsenal and Newcastle head Manchester United and City in the hunt for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

    That’s the claim from Italy’s Corriere dello Sport, who say the Serie Agiants want £26million for the Spain star.

    Napoli still hope to keep the 26-year-old but might cash in this summer as he only has one year left on his contract.

  • Inter ‘reach Lukaku agreement’

    Romelu Lukaku’s loan back to Inter Milan moved a huge step closer with reports they’ve reached an agreement in principle with Chelsea.

    The former Manchester United striker, 29, seems sure to return to the San Siro for 2022-23.

    According to The Athletic, a deal is almost done following negotiations between the two clubs. The terms agreed will see Inter pay a £6.9million loan fee plus add-ons.

    And they have also sorted out how Lukaku’s £325,000-a-week wages and personal bonuses will be paid.

    However, there is understood to be no option or obligation to buy him in the contract.

    New Chelsea owner Todd Boehley’s relationship with Michael Yormack, president of Roc Nation who represent Lukaku – played a pivotal part in the switch.

    The report adds the Belgian forward is due to undergo a medical next week. And assuming all goes to plan, their former star will complete his return to Inter just a year after his £97.5m record transfer back to Stamford Bridge.

    That deal saw Lukaku pen a five-year contract in West London until 2026, meaning he will still have three years left to run on the deal when the loan finishes.

  • Red Devils linked to huge bid for Porto striker

    Manchester United could bid more than £60million for Porto striker Evanilson.

    The Brazilian’s agent Marcio Barros insists only Brighton have so far made a formal offer for the 22-year-old.

    Barros spoke out after reports in Portugal that United had bid around £53m – compared to the £70m Porto are said to want.

    Evanilson, capped only at Under-23 level, notched 21 goals and five assists in 45 games last season.

  • Devil of a job to sell Martial

    EXCLUSIVE: Manchester United are having a nightmare trying to find a buyer for Anthony Martial due to his sky-high wages, writes NEIL CUSTIS.

    United are ready to accept a big hit on the £38.5million they paid for him with offers of around £20million ready to be heard.

    Martial still has two years left on that deal which means United may have to agree to a pay off to get him out of Old Trafford.

    Sevilla in La Liga showed interest last season when they took him on a fourth month loan in the second-half of last season.

    But the frontman flopped and he will return for pre-season training at Carrington on Monday.

    United are also actively trying to find a buyer for centre-back Eric Bailly having offered him to Newcastle United – but that was met with a lukewarm response.

    Having signed a new contract in April 2021 he still has two years left of his current contract.

    As with Martial, United are ready to take a hit on the 28-year-old with an asking price of just £8.5million for a player who costs them £30million from Villarreal in 2016.

  • ‘Red Devils could sell two top defenders’

    Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United could sell at least two defenders amid a huge clear-out this summer, writes EMILIA HAWKINS.

    The Red Devils are expected to undergo a complete squad revamp following another disastrous season.

    And their back line is a key area to improve.

    In conceding 57 Premier League goals in 2021-22, Man Utd endured their worst defensive season since the 1978-79 campaign (63).

    As a result, Ferdinand believes new boss Erik ten Hag could sell any of the club’s four main centre-backs, including Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane.

    When speaking on his Vibe with Five YouTube show, the United legend said: “I’ll be interested to see what Ten Hag does in that area.

    “We’re talking about the young lad, Timber, at Ajax, a small centre-half.

    “I’ll be interested to see what happens with Varane, Lindelof and Maguire, Bailly as well, I think one or two of those will go.”

  • Tevez lands first boss job

    Ex-Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has landed his first managerial job after being appointed at Argentine side Rosario Central.

    The 38-year-old has moved quickly into becoming a head coach after only announcing his retirement from professional football earlier this month.

    Sunsport recently reported how the former Argentina, West Ham and Man City star was set to take charge of Rosario.

    And that has now been confirmed by the club, with Tevez beating highly-rated Pablo Sanchez to the coveted role.

    He has penned a one-year contract with the Estadio Gigante de Arroyito outfit having called time on his career after leaving Boca Juniors in 2021.

    Taking to Twitter, Rosario have stated that Tevez’s former Argentina team-mate Carlos Retegui will be part of his backroom staff.

  • Utd CEO meets ex-chief Gill

    Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold has been pictured having lunch with David Gill.

    Arnold, who became the first person to hold that title at United since Gill in 2013, was spotted at the Italian restaurant Cibo in Hale Village.

    Gill joined the club in 1997, spending ten years as CEO, and went on to have roles at the FA while now working for UEFA.

    Accountant Arnold succeeded the unpopular Ed Woodward in February.

    During Gill’s time at Old Trafford, he oversaw as Sir Alex Ferguson won NINE Premier League titles and two Champions League medals.

    And Arnold could have been picking his brains ahead of the upcoming season.

    Their lunch comes after Arnold was filmed branding last season a “f***ing nightmare” in another Cheshire day out.

    He has been pictured enjoying days out with his family on his £5.5m Azimut Grande superyacht, which is moored in Port Adriano in the south-west of Majorca.

    And the dad-of five is believed to be renting a luxury villa near the scene of Monday morning’s accident. Ronaldo also spent time with niece Alicia and even participated in a TikTok, dancing topless and showing off his loose hips.
