Daley Blind has told Erik ten Hag how to sign Antony for Manchester United

Daley Blind has warned Manchester United that Ajax will only sell star forward Antony if their asking price is met.

New United boss Erik ten Hag called time on his Ajax tenure six weeks early this week and arrived in Manchester on Monday to begin work at Old Trafford. Though he won't take over the reins of the team from Ralf Rangnick until after the season concludes against Crystal Palace on Sunday, plans are now in progress ahead of the summer transfer window.

Unsurprisingly, United are being linked with a host of players who enjoyed success with the 52-year-old at Ajax, including Frenkie de Jong, Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez. Another exciting name to be touted with a move is the Amsterdamer's exciting winger Antony.

The Brazilian is a real live wire on the flanks, never shy of pulling out flamboyant tricks, and had a great season with 12 goals and 10 assists in all competitions as his side won a domestic double.

With Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba all leaving this summer upon the expiration of their contracts and the futures of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo in doubt, United will likely have to make attacking reinforcements in the summer and Antony may present an attractive option.

However, the Eredivisie champion's centre-back Blind has made it clear the Brazilian won't be going on the cheap.

Man Utd have wasted more money than any European rival as staggering £908m spend emerges
Manchester United have wasted plenty of money over the last century, and it has revealed that they spent £908m on new signings.Since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, the Red Devils have struggled in all competitions and continually looked to the transfer market to try and bring in players to reignite the team.But a large bulk of their acquisitions have flopped at Old Trafford.Angel Di Maria (£67.5m), Anthony Martial (£54m) and Harry Maguire (£78m) are just a few names amongst a plethora of players who have massively underperformed since joining United.Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane were purchased ahead of the start of the season for a combined total of £112.5m, and although neither have lit up the Premier League just yet, it is too early to completely judge either of the pair.According to CIES Football Observatory, the club have made the biggest loss on transfers in the past 10 years - £78m more than rivals Manchester City, who have trophies and a star-studded squad for their expenditure.United are currently sitting in fourth place in the Premier League and have been tipped by many to splash the cash again in the summer once a permanent manager is found. Current boss Ralf Rangnick went unbacked in the January transfer window, with the board keen to only buy players who are part of the plans of his successor.
