Here we go; Antony to Manchester United
- Manchester United and Ajax agreed on Antony’s transfer on Sunday evening. The Dutch club accepted a proposal of 85 million euros for Antony to Manchester United transfer.
- The Red Devils have until September 1 to complete Antony’s transfer. The Brazilian international will have his medical in the next 48 hours in Manchester.
The Red Devils have completed another big signing this summer. According to sources, Antony to Manchester United is a done deal.
Manchester United have agreed to an 85 million euros deal with Ajax for winger Antony. The Premier League giants will pay a guaranteed 80.75 million euros and then 4.25 million euros as bonuses.
Antony is expected to complete his medicals and then sign as a Manchester United player in the next 48 hours. Personal terms between Manchester United and Antony will not be a problem since the player wanted the move.
The Red Devils will have to complete Antony to Manchester United deal before the transfer window closes on September 1.
Manchester United showed interest in the 22-year-old a few days after the transfer window opened. However, the Red Devils surprisingly went mute on Antony’s deal and focused on other transfers.
They again showed interest in Antony at the start of this month. Despite Ajax making it clear that Antony was not in the market, the Red Devils kept pushing.
Antony also wanted to secure the move, and that motivated Manchester United to push harder. At the start of last week, Ajax rejected Manchester United’s bid of 67.9 million euros. However, the Dutch club decided to release Antony after Manchester United offered more than 80 million euros on Sunday evening.
Is Antony to Manchester United a good deal?
Antony to Manchester United is a good deal for both parties. The Brazilian international wanted the move, and he has finally gotten it.
On the other side, Manchester United have signed a world-class winger who will play on the left wing. Since the start of the 2020-21 season, Antony has been a key player for Ajax in the Eredivisie.
Antony has scored 18 goals and provided 14 assists in 57 matches. The talented winger has recorded 147 shots and created 75 chances.
Antony to Manchester United deal will enable the youngster to reunite with his former manager Eric ten Hag. The Dutch coach highly rates Antony and will definitely find a way to make him fit in Manchester United’s playing style.
Eric ten Hag convinced Ajax to sign Antony from Sao Paulo in July 2020. The Manchester United boss has also played a huge role in convincing his current club to sign the Brazilian.
Having Antony, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Antony Martial makes Manchester United’s attack lethal. The Red Devils will be one of the teams to watch out for this season.
Apart from Antony, Manchester United have also signed Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro. Erik ten Hag is building a team that will compete for titles this season.
Antony to Manchester United is so far the most expensive deal the Red Devils have done this summer.
