Manchester United’s patience with Antony appears to have finally run out, as they will reportedly listen to offers for the Brazilian in the summer.

he winger joined from Ajax in the summer of 2022, signing for an eye-watering sum of £86 million ($109m) and amid much fanfare. But manager Erik ten Hag, who spearheaded the approach having managed him in the Netherlands, is yet to get the best out of him. With no goals or assists in 20 league games Antony has gone down as one of the worst signing.Reports that United may finally be willing to admit their mistake and let him go.

The Mail‘s report even notes that the club would be prepared to lose over half the £86m fee paid in order to get him gone.Antony’s struggles at United have been clear to see in recent weeks. Even Ten Hag, who has remained one of his staunch defenders when the likes of Jadon Sancho and Facundo Pellistri were afforded no such leniency, has looked elsewhere of late. The Brazilian has started just one of United’s last eight matches, and has seen youngsters Omari Forson and Amad Diallo brought on ahead of him from the bench.

Ten Hag has pointed towards Antony’s struggles with domestic abuse allegations – which he vehemently denies – being behind his poor form this season. But his dire record of nine goals in 70 matches across his entire United career makes for grim reading, and will likely lead to his eventual sale in the summer.
