AC Milan have reignited their interest in signing Antony two years after they tried to beat Ajax to his signature, according to a report.
According to Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan), Geoffrey Moncada has followed Antony since 2020 when he was at Sao Paulo and they were readying an offer to sign him as Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara had been convinced.
However, Ajax beat Milan to him and paid €20m to bring him to Amsterdam to replace Hakim Ziyech, who in the meantime flew to London to sign for Chelsea. In the 2021-22 campaign he truly exploded with 12 goals and 10 assists in 33 games across all competitions.
Milan need a right winger and they are enticed by the idea of signing Antony in the summer mercato but they do not intend to enter an auction to secure him, which could be an issue as Manchester United – now led by head coach Erik Ten Hag who left the Dutch capital – have offered €45m.
The Rossoneri have remained a bit dormant in the recent period due to the change in ownership but Antony’s name remains circled in red on Maldini and Massara’s potential shopping list.
