Manchester United and Chelsea are said to be in contact with Ajax Antony’s agent over a move, MySportDab reports.
The player has been linked with a move elsewhere after an impressive season with Ajax who will be losing their manager.
Erik Ten Hag has told Manchester United to open talks to sign Antony who Chelsea is also interested in signing when the summer window opens.
The Brazilian has managed to ensure his form continues to help his current team who are chasing another league title this season.
His coming into Chelsea could be another opportunity for Thomas Tuchel to either use him as a wing-back or play as a forward.
Meanwhile, Manchester United might be where he could get the opportunity to grow further with them already eyeing an overhaul and he will be working with the same manager.
The Brazilian joined Ajax in 2020 which was on a five-year deal for an initial £13 million, with an option of the fee rising to €18 million.
He still has three years left on his contract to expire and it could see him go for a huge transfer fee during the summer window.
The 22-year-old is worth €38 million in the transfer market which could be a fee not too big for the English Premier League side to pay.
According to Transfer News Live, they confirmed both Manchester United and Chelsea are in talks to sign the player.

The odds favor Manchester United more than Chelsea as the player has the opportunity of working with the same manager if he moves to Old Trafford.
The Blues could be looking at the player as a possible backup for their wingback position which could see them set to lose Marcos Alonso or Cesar Azpilicueta.
