In the summer of 2022, Antony moved to Old Trafford after Erik ten Hag did, joining Ajax in an £85 million transfer that saw him move to the Premier League.
The winger has failed to live up to that high price tag, and talk about his future has already begun following a lackluster start to the current campaign.
This season, the 23-year-old has made 12 appearances in all competitions, although he has not yet scored or assisted.
Football Insider claims that despite this, Ten Hag isn’t prepared to give up on the player just yet and will reject any bids made for him in January.
Man United’s lack of attacking options—especially with Jadon Sancho poised to depart in January—is the primary reason for their refusal to let Antony go.
For the Brazilian, who is battling for his place in the Premier League team and hopes to make the Brazil team for the Copa America next summer, the second half of the season might be crucial.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a British businessman, will likely want to start making changes now that he will be engaged in the club’s operations starting next year. Players like Antony, who are making very little contributions, will probably be shown the door.
