    The 22-year-old Ajax star has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford since Ten Hag’s appointment.

    The links had cooled in recent weeks with suggestions that United were looking elsewhere having seen a £51million offer turned down.

    However, talkSPORT understands that is not the case.

    Speaking on White and Jordan, transfer insider Alex Crook said: “I’ve been getting some information about a player we’ve spoken about before, Antony at Ajax.

    “There have been a lot of reports that Manchester United’s interest in him is over. I was under the impression last week that a move for him would only be a target if Cristiano Ronaldo was to leave.

    “That may not be the case.

    “I’ve had some information from a very reliable source that Manchester United are still very much looking to bring Antony to the Premier League.

    “Erik ten Hag is a big admirer of his qualities and believes he can add something to his Manchester United rebuild.

    “They haven’t got a specific price yet, but the price discussed over in Holland is 70million euros, or a little bit less than that.

    “But the message I’ve been given is that Antony to Manchester United is very much still on and therefore one to keep an eye on during the remainder of the transfer window.”
