If Antony goes for Manchester United, Ajax intends to sign Leeds and Newcastle target Hakim Ziyech, according to 90min.
What’s the story?
The Brazilian winger skipped training yesterday after Ajax rejected a £68 million approach from Manchester United, with the Dutch giants demanding £78 million.
Ajax, on the other hand, expects Manchester United to respond with another bid and is therefore planning to bring Ziyech back to Amsterdam – a player reported to be desired by Jesse Marsch and Eddie Howe.
Chelsea news: Thomas Tuchel hit with hefty fine, Blues enquire about the availability of Harry Maguire
90min claim that Thomas Tuchel has told Ziyech that he can leave Stamford Bridge after only 14 Premier League starts last season – the Blues are even believed to be willing to sell for just £8m, taking a £25m loss on their initial £33m purchase.
AC Milan are also interested in signing the 29-year-old, who was dubbed “The Wizard” by people in Amsterdam before leaving for Chelsea in 2020.
