GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS
Manchester United have been linked with a move for Derby County teenager Malcolm Ebiowei.
However, while the Red Devils have entered the race to poach Ebiowei, Fabrizio Romano understands that Crystal Palace are the club in pole position.
Meanwhile, United are prepared to walk away from a move to sign Frenkie de Jong unless Barcelona lower their valuation.
Reports suggest that the Catalans are holding out for €100m while the Red Devils are reluctant to pay more than €70m.
And now sources close to United have revealed that the Premier League club are considering alternatives to the midfielder.
Elsewhere, Erik ten Hag is said to have made Ajax winger Antony his number one transfer target – but any discussions regarding a move for the Brazilian have so far been internal between those at Old Trafford.
Transfers guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed that there is certainly a genuine interest in the player from the Red Devils, and rumours suggest an offer of £43m is imminent.
However, Antony’s brother – Emerson Santos – has dismissed those reports that state negotiations are much further down the line as ‘fake news’.
Finally, Man United face stiff competition from AC Milan in the pursuit of Marco Asensio, reports claim.
Milan are determined to bring the Real Madrid striker to Italy this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport.
And Milan’s director Paolo Maldini has directly contacted Real boss Carlo Ancelotti in order to make Asensio’s move to the Serie A happen, the report adds.
