Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Brazilian Ajax winger Antony and are preparing a new £80million offer this week, the Sun reports.
United are struggling to strengthen new boss Erik ten Hag’s squad, especially after their poor start to the season.
United lost their Premier League season opener 2-1 to Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
They then followed that up with a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Brentford.
Antony favors a move to United and did not train on Saturday – missing out on Sunday’s 1-0 win over Sparta Rotterdam.

And according to Nicolo Schira, United have already reached an agreement with Antony on personal terms.
The Brazilian star, 22, has agreed a five-year contract, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2027.
United are also preparing a new offer of £80million to try to entice Ajax to sell and expect to seal a transfer this week.
Former Tottenham ace Steven Bergwijn, who scored the winner in Sunday’s game, wished Antony well and said “everyone has dreams”.
“Anthony? Everyone has dreams,” he said.
“If that happens, I wish him all the best. I would find it sad if he left, but like I said, everyone has dreams.
