Man United reaches an agreement for Antony transfer with Ajax for a €100 million (£85 million) fee, which is subject to a medical, finalization of player terms, and international clearance.
Antony has 31 goals and 27 assists in 134 club appearances for Ajax and Sao Paulo, as well as 2 goals and 2 assists in nine senior appearances for his home country of Brazil. He has two Eredivisie titles and a gold medal in the Summer Olympics in 2020.
According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, Manchester United will keep their eyes open in the final days of the current transfer window.
The Red Devils have had a relatively productive first summer under new manager Erik ten Hag, bringing in a number of exciting signings to kickstart his tenure at the club.
What is the most recent Manchester United news?
United has prioritized offloading unwanted fringe stars and underperforming big names in recent months, with Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, and Juan Mata all looking for greener pastures.
And Ten Hag has finally been able to replace them, bringing in Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, and Christian Eriksen, establishing his authority over the first-team squad.
Ajax winger Antony is also set to join the Dutch tactician’s revolution at Old Trafford following lengthy negotiations after the two clubs agreed on a €100 million (£85 million) fee.
Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who is expected to provide cover and competition for David de Gea, could be the next to arrive in the red half of Manchester.
Despite this, Ten Hag may be eager to add one or two more new faces to his squad if the transfer budget allows, given the poor start to the Premier League season he has presided over.
What has Sheth said about Manchester United?
Sheth told GiveMeSport that ‘funny things happen in the final days of transfer windows’ and refused to rule out the possibility of United doing more business.
“Who would have thought Manchester United would spend nearly £70 million on Casemiro?” he said. That wasn’t even mentioned until about a week ago.
“So, strange things happen in the final few days of a transfer window, and I believe United will keep their eyes open.”
Who could Manchester United sign Next?
