Chelsea could rival Manchester United for Ajax's Antony
Chelsea are among those to have recently held talks with the representatives of Ajax winger Antony, 90min understands, although the Brazilian is a key transfer target for Manchester United.
Antony has risen to prominence during his two years in Amsterdam, breaking into the Brazil squad and registering double figures for both goals and assists in 2021/22.
The manager who oversaw the 22-year-old's emergence at Ajax, Erik ten Hag, has of course taken over at Man Utd, and 90min revealed earlier this week that the wide man is the Red Devils' primary attacking target this summer, with talks held over a transfer when the player's agents were in England a few weeks ago.
Indeed, Antony has signalled that he would like to move on from the Johan Cruyff Arena in the summer.
The London club have been monitoring the Brazilian's situation since in their ongoing search for attacking reinforcements. Man City star Raheem Sterling and Barcelona contract rebel Ousmane Dembele are also targets.
Meanwhile, initial talks have also been held with Sterling's representatives, with Man City open to selling both the England international and fellow attacker Gabriel Jesus this summer.
