Antony's fresh stance is the latest setback Manchester United have been dealt in the market. As a deal for Frenkie de Jong continues to look more and more unlikely, United have also seen their bid to sign Adrien Rabiot collapse due to the Italian's excessive salary demands.

According transfer expert, Fabrizio Romana,  Manchester United plan to approach Ajax again for Antony before the end of the window. Deal considered more than difficult, as Ajax want to keep him but Man United will try again. 

Cody Gakpo remains easier option in the list - as Pulisic loan depends on Todd Boehly.

Ten Hag is desperate for midfield reinforcements after breaking up the underwhelming partnership of Scott McTominay and Fred but is struggling to source the elite defensive midfielder that he craves.

United are currently on the bottom of the Premier League table after starting the new season with double defeats against Brighton and Brentford. The result means that Ten Hag has made the worst start of any Manchester United manager in over a century.
