Manchester united agree on a deal to sign Antony from Ajax

IKEJA, Nigeria - Aug. 29, 2022 - PRLog -- Antony Matheus dos Santos, simply known as Antony, is a Brazilian professional football player who plays as a winger for Eredivisie club Ajax and the Brazil national team. Antony is a graduate of São Paulo's youth system and scored six goals in 52 appearances for the club.

On 23 February 2020, Ajax signed Antony on a five-year deal for an initial £13 million, which could rise to £18.2 million. On 13 September 2020, he scored his first goal for Ajax in a 1–0 win over Sparta Rotterdam. In a league game against SBV Vitesse, he bagged his second goal for Ajax. On 3 November 2020, Antony scored his first UEFA Champions League goal in a 2–1 away win over Midtjylland in the 2020/21 seasons.

Antony was named in the Brazil under-23 squad for the 2020 summer Olympics on 17 June 2021. He made his debut for the Brazil national football team on 7 October 2021 in a World Cup qualifier against Venezuela. He came on as a substitute in 77th minute and scored a goal in added time to establish the final score of 3–1 for Brazil.

Manchester United's number one attacking target is finally secured as the club gets a deal worth an initial €95m (£80m) plus €5m (£4m) in bonuses over the line. Erik ten Hag has been keen to link up with the winger, after the Brazilian netted eight goals and registered four assists under him at Ajax last season. Antony becomes United's fourth summer signing and their second from Ajax, as Erik Ten Hag looks to stamp his authority on his squad. The 22-year-old will be hoping he can help the club continue their recent good form after what was a terrible start to the season.

Manchester united will pay a guaranteed £80.75m and another £4.25m in add-ons for the 22-year-old, who is expected in Manchester in the next 48 hours to have a medical.
