Ajax winger Antony wants his club to heed offers this summer amid interest from Manchester United, but he is valued at around £68 million.

The Red Devils have yet to sign a contract this summer, but have launched a transfer for the Brazilian at the request of Erik ten Hag.

Talks are underway for the £40 million man, who scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists when Ten Hag’s Ajax side won the Eredivisie last season.

Reports earlier this week suggested the Brazil international remains determined to push through a step.

The 22-year-old – identified as a target by Ten Hag last month during talks with United football director John Murtough in Amsterdam – has a good relationship with his former boss, with the Dutchman taking over from Sao Paulo in 2020.

But reports now suggest Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have met with Antony’s agents who are looking to bolster the roster this summer.

Chelsea have been linked with a move to Ousmane Dembele, but Barcelona remain open to a new contract with the Frenchman.

The Blues are also in the running to sign Leeds winger Raphinha, but reports suggest German boss Tuchel would like him to play as a fullback, something the Brazilian may not be too keen on.

That could spark their hunt for a new signing for Antony, though Manchester City star Raheem Sterling remains a Blues target.

United fans, however, will hope to see Antony at Old Trafford next season and that it will spark a busy spell of activity at the club.

Ten Hag’s main target remains Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, while Jurrien Timber, Pau Torres and Lisandro Martinez are targets on a list of defenders.
