Man Utd delegation in Amsterdam for Ajax talks over star pair

A Manchester United delegation is in Amsterdam today for transfer talks with Ajax.

United's former Ajax coach Erik ten Hag has already suffered a first rejection from Jurrien Timber. However, two more Ajax players remain on his agenda.

Brazilian striker Antony and Argentine defender Lisandro Martinez are both targets for Ten Hag.

The Sun says United officials have flown into Amsterdam to get the move for Antony 'over the line'. The Red Devils are ready to pay £40million to make the Brazilian the first signing of the Ten Hag era.

United's new boss is said to be keen to see Antony start his rebuild of the fallen Premier League giants. The winger had a good relationship with Ten Hag after joining from Sao Paulo and hailed the Dutchman after he officially left Ajax.

Lisandro is also emerging as an alternative for Ten Hag to Timber. Ajax have already rejected a €25m offer from Arsenal for the stopper in the past week.
