Despite Signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea Is Still Competing with Manchester United for The Acquisition of Ivan Toney!

In addition to Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton are also considering offers for Ivan Toney.

All three teams have the Brentford striker on their transfer want lists, and the Bees are expecting offers before the deadline. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Chelsea’s primary target in the central striker position.

If that transfer doesn’t go through, the Blues might turn their attention to Toney, and after losing Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner up top, Thomas Tuchel may even push for a pair of strikers. United has been considering Toney as a potential replacement for their current lack of a striker.

They may also aim to sign two-line leaders if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves. According to a report from Mirror Football from earlier this month, United has been keeping tabs on Toney all summer long. With an initial £60 million fee agreed upon, Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is expected to be revealed as Erik ten Hag’s next major signing before the transfer market closes. A win in the Frenkie De Jong affair is still possible, and Cody Gakpo is another option.

Antony, a star player for Ajax, has gone on strike in an attempt to force the club to sell to Manchester United. He has refused to publicly commit to the Dutch club, and he is widely expected to become the Red Devils’ sixth summer signing.

When asked if he could assure Amsterdam fans that he would still be at the club after the transfer market closes at the end of the month, the Brazilian international responded with a resounding “no.” No, he said, “to be totally forthright, I can’t.

Just know that I want to make a decision that benefits my loved ones, my business associates, and Ajax as a whole.

Ultimately, it is God who will decide my fate. I have signed a deal with Ajax that will keep me there until the summer of 2025, and I plan to devote my entire professional career to this magnificent club.

I’ve been wearing this shirt with pride and a sense of belonging since day one. If we come to the conclusion that my continued presence in the club is for the best, then I am willing to accept that. Actually, it’s not like I have to go anywhere. I have delegated all non-football-related responsibilities to my agents and my brother and am now concentrating only on my football career. The best course of action will be suggested to me by them.


The Northampton Town Football Club was where Toney’s professional career began. On 13 November 2012, he made his first-team debut in a 3–3 FA Cup first-round away tie against Bradford City, replacing Lewis Wilson in stoppage time. His team ultimately lost 4–2 in a penalty shootout. He made the club’s first team at the age of 16, making him the youngest player in the team’s history. The next day, he led his team to a 5-0 victory over York City in the FA Youth Cup with four goals.

On November 17 he was included in the matchday squad for the final time that season, however, he did not play in the team’s 3-1 home League Two victory over Wycombe Wanderers.

Toney scored a header in a 3-2 League Cup first-round win away to Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers on 12 August 2014.

On September 20 he scored his first league goals of the season, coming off the bench in place of Lawson D’Ath in a home match against Accrington Stanley, a game which his club ultimately lost 5-4. A week later, he scored the winning goal on the road against Morecambe with a header.  On December 26th, during a 3-2 home loss to Bury, Toney was sent his first and only red card of his professional career after a fight with Bury defender Hayden White.
