Exclusive: Former Man United ace on what Antony transfer could mean for Cristiano Ronaldo

As Manchester United's Antony transfer nears completion, many are wondering what it will mean for Cristiano Ronaldo's time spent at Old Trafford.

Former Manchester United player Luke Chadwick told CaughtOffside that Ronaldo's time at the club was "probably" over after this signing, and that the introduction of this exciting big-name acquisition helped ease the impact of the departure of a club great.

Chadwick is certain that Antony would flourish in Erik ten Hag's team, but he appears to have given up hope for Ronaldo's comeback.

"I believe the fans are going to really love seeing him (Antony), since he's such a dynamic player. "He can both score and set up goals," Chadwick added.

"Elanga has stepped in and done well, but you have to admit that Antony has much more potential. I believe he can join the team and expand our choices. If they can sign Antony this week, they'll have a formidable front three.

Antony is closing in on a transfer to Manchester United

The 4-2-3-1 formation has worked well for Ten Hag in the past, and he is very familiar with Antony.

The victories against Liverpool and Southampton, as well as the additions of Casemiro and Antony, have changed the outlook on the season and the club's outlook as a whole.

A Ronaldo departure would be less devastating with this deal, he said.
