Report: Ten Hag open to parting ways with Ronaldo, Man U set to make transfer record bid for Antony

According to Duncan Castles of The Times, manager Erik ten Hag has approved the sale of Cristiano before the transfer deadline.

Although the Dutch coach has officially indicated that Ronaldo is still in his plans, it seems that his position has altered behind the scenes following this month’s 4-0 defeat at Brentford.

Against the London team, Ten Hag criticized the team’s individual mistakes and lack of physical effort, and it appears that Ronaldo was especially dissatisfied with the manager’s response.

The Glazers allegedly are also willing to accept a commercial loss in the event that the Portuguese superstar leaves the club. According to Salarysport, the Portuguese superstar earns £24,960,000 annually, and Manchester United’s manager is now willing to split ways with him.

We’ll have to wait and see whether that occurs. Despite his high salary, Ronaldo hasn’t had any bids from European clubs. There is currently no assurance that he will move on.

It is commonly known that Castles and super-agent Mendes, who also serves as Ronaldo’s longtime agent, get along well.

So, we’re convinced that the plot is being directed by agents. In recent weeks, Mendes has been frantically looking for proposals for Ronaldo, but there has been absolutely no movement.

While has no plans to reunite with the 37-year-old legend, teams like , Munich, and Atletico Madrid have distanced themselves from potential approaches.

Before selling Ronaldo, United will try to find a replacement, but the odds of him leaving the team are slim unless he is willing to take a big pay reduction.

In our opinion, the player, who is valued at £27 million, might receive a lifeline from Premier League rivals Chelsea.

With the addition of Wesley Fofana, the west London team’s buying spree will reach £255 million, and they are still looking for a top center-forward option.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a target for The Blues, although a deal on a price has not yet been reached. United’s entry into the race for him may have a cascading impact.

The arrival of Aubameyang at Old Trafford may open the door for Ronaldo to transfer to Stamford Bridge.

In addition, it’s possible that Chelsea will reduce the price they are asking for Hakim Ziyech, allowing Ajax to sign him. It would guarantee Antony’s transfer to Old Trafford.

According to The Mirror, Manchester United is prepared to make a transfer record offer to acquire Ajax winger Antony during the summer transfer window.

The Athletic claims that Ajax rejected both of the Red Devils’ double bids, costing €80 million and €90 million and that United is now prepared to make a new offer.

According to The Athletic, Antony’s sale would net the Eredivisie giants a fee of £84.8 million.

Also making it known to Ajax that he wants to transfer to Old Trafford is the Brazilian international. Antony declined to play against Sparta Rotterdam last weekend and similarly declines to play against Utrecht today. Last season, the 22-year-old Ajax winger scored 22 goals but missed the final few months with an ankle injury.

But if Manchester United spends £84.8 million on Antony, that would make him the club’s second-largest signing ever following the £89 million Paul Pogba deal from back in 2016. (Sky Sports).
