Manchester United missed out on signing Mohammed Kudus in the summer.
The Ghanian attacker joined West Ham in a £38 million deal and have been impressive for ex-Reds manager David Moyes this summer.
Kudus had the perfect profile of manager Erik ten Hag should’ve been pushing for and would have been a cheaper deal than Antony who was signed last summer.
The former Ajax winger has netted four goals in his first 15 outings for West Ham and the £40 million price tag is considered a bargain by many.
Journalist Dean Jones is baffled why United didn’t push harder for the 23-year-old attacker.
“I think Man United have made a big mistake by not signing Kudus. I think that when you look at the amount of money they spent on Antony, from Ajax, and you look at what Kudus was available for at the same club and what he’s brought to the Premier League already.
“Add to the fact that he’s versatile, he could have played out wide, he could have played in behind, he could have led the line. I’m just amazed that Man United didn’t end up going for this player, recently or even before that point.
“He was there, he was up for grabs. Erik ten Hag knew all about him, they had the profile there and they didn’t sign him.”
