Manchester United have made a new signing as they finally get hands on Antony from Ajax in the transfer window this summer.
Erik ten Hag was keen to secure the services of the Brazilian forward to bolster the attacking line in the squad. Antony traveled to Manchester earlier on Monday to complete his medicals in the club’s facilities ahead of the move.
United will soon release an official statement on the latest transfer made by the club on the website and social media. It is understood that Antony will be unveiled on Tuesday and will be made an official player of the club.
Antony is a Manchester United player
Antony was under much speculation regarding a move to Old Trafford this summer as ten Hag was keen to sign. Moreover, the pole even went on a strike and did not make it to the training sessions at Ajax.
Whereas, with the services of the Brazilian forward, United have added depth in the squad that was much required this season. Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo still wants an exit from the club and Antony’s arrival now seems like a wise decision.
Moreover, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano took to Twitter to confirm the move to United. He said-
Antony to Manchester United, here we go! Agreement in principle with Ajax, €100m fee.
Contract until June 2027 with option until 2028.

Undoubtedly, the Red Devils fans will be excited to see him don the United outfit for the new season. It will be interesting to see how the gaffer integrates him into the squad along with Marcus Rashford and the others.
