Manchester United are reportedly willing to sell winger Antony for £43m during the summer transfer window, despite spending £86m on the Brazilian in 2022.

Manchester United have reportedly set an asking price of £43m for winger Antony ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old made the switch to Old Trafford from Eredivisie giants Ajax during the summer of 2022 in a deal worth £86m.

Antony has failed to significantly contribute in front of goal over the past 18 months, netting just nine times in all competitions from 69 appearances.

This season, the Brazilian is yet to register a goal contribution in the Premier League for Erik ten Hag's men, despite featuring in 19 top-flight matches.

According to Fichajes, Manchester United are willing to cut their losses with Antony ahead of the 2024-25 campaign - a first full term under the minority ownership of INEOS boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

The report claims that the Red Devils are prepared to accept an offer worth £43m for the 16-time international from any potential suitors this summer.

It is understood that Antony is not part of Ten Hag's long-term plans at Old Trafford and is set for a transfer away at the conclusion of the campaign.

The Brazilian is currently playing second fiddle to 19-year-old Alejandro Garnacho on the red side of Manchester, last starting a Premier League match on December 30.

Antony's only goal involvements this season arrived in an FA Cup fourth-round clash at League Two Newport County, with the ex-Ajax attacker scoring and providing an assist.

The 23-year-old started the 4-2 success at Rodney Parade on January 28 but has failed to make a United XI since, featuring for just 19 minutes off the bench combined in the last four matches.

It was widely reported that Man United only valued Antony at £25m before eventually securing his services for more than treble that figure ahead of Ten Hag's first season in England.

During his maiden term in the Premier League, the winger managed four goals and two assists, while also bagging a goal to help United on their way to EFL Cup glory.

Antony will likely have to settle for a place among the substitutes once again when the Red Devils host Fulham at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
