Erik ten Hag to push for Man United to seal £70m transfer to replace Cristiano Ronaldo

Posted by

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is reportedly set to push for the club to seal the transfer of Ajax forward Antony to replace the unsettled Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Red Devils have been rocked by some unwanted transfer news, with various reports breaking yesterday stating that Ronaldo wants the club to accept reasonable offers for him so he can play in the Champions League.

This was first broken by the Times, and there’s now speculation emerging about who could fill the void that would be left if Ronaldo were to leave Old Trafford.

According to the Mirror, Ten Hag is ready to call for United to do what it takes to sign Brazilian star Antony from his old club Ajax, in a deal likely to cost around £70million.

Antony to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United?

Antony has shone in the Eredivisie and is a player Ten Hag knows well, so this deal makes sense for MUFC, though it will be hard to replace a legendary figure like Ronaldo.

The Portugal international may be turning 38 next season, but he remains a key player for United after an impressive return of 24 goals in 38 games in all competitions last term.

Antony is not as prolific as Ronaldo, but he is a skilful attacker who would surely add a new dimension to this struggling side.

  1. If Ronaldo wants to leave, he should be allowed to do so. Manchester City do not have Ronaldo in their team, neither do Liverpool, yet they’ve been winning trophies. Bring Anthony at any cost. Bring in Lisandro Martinez. Do away with Harry Maguire and Diego Dalot. Aaron Wan-Bisakka shouldn’t be sold. United should stop foot-dragging, and sign players. If Frankie De Jong doesn’t want to come, look elsewhere. If he wants to come pay the fee and bring him.

  2. It could be a plus to salvage the club for a perfect replacement for the jagaban CR7.

  3. Ronaldo or no Ronaldo man United must buy world class players os that we can be proud of our team again.

  4. CR7 remains a legend in Manutd but if he wants to play his football elsewhere he should be allowed to go so we don’t lose out completely. The problem is the management of MUFC who at this time is still foot-dragging to sign players of high repute and the season starts in August…. I support the ‘Glazers out’ protests by die-hard supporters. Who will replace prolific CR7

    1. I’m ashamed the way Man United run there business transfer, up till now they’re still doing same thing no change at all, this football club is disgracing me.

  5. Never keep a player who has publicly stated he doesn’t want to stay. Get players who will fight for the club and their place in the team.
