The Red Devils were priced out of a move for Antony after the Dutch champions demanded a whopping £68million.

And the winger has told Dutch outlet NOS how he loves playing for the Amsterdam giants.

He said: “Will Ten Hag call me? No idea. He has to discuss this with my agents, I’m focused on here. What will come will come, we’ll see.

“I feel good at Ajax. I give everything for this club, every minute. So I am loving this city and this club.”

On Sunday, Antony showed United fans what they are missing as he got off the mark in this season’s Eredivisie.

He cut in from the right hand side and unleashed a rocket into the top corner during a 6-1 thumping of Groningen.

It is an example of why boss Ten Hag saw the Brazilian as a major target after working with him at Ajax last term.

Tottenham flop Steven Bergwijn also scored a hat-trick, but it was Antony’s cracker that has Man Utd fans weeping.


With the 22-year-old under contract until 2025, Ajax are under no pressure to sell this summer.

They have already sold Lisandro Martinez to United, as well as flogging Sebastien Haller, Ryan Gravenberch and Nicolas Tagliafico for a combined £100m.

Martinez was hauled off at half time on Saturday as the Red Devils were thumped 4-0 at Brentford.

And the Dutch gaffer has demanded the squad comes in for extra training after the shambolic 4-0 defeat to Brentford.

The players were due to have a day off following the trip to London.

But SunSport understands Ten Hag is forcing his players into Carrington for an extra training session.
