Antony, a former Ajax winger, is now Manchester United's second most expensive player after Paul Pogba. The Brazilian was Erick Ten Hag's all-time top target and United have been pushing hard to sign him.
Fortunately, the deal went through, and the fee of £85.51 million was agreed upon by both clubs on Tuesday afternoon. The 22-year-old winger had a fantastic spell in the Dutch league, scoring 24 goals and assisting 22 times in two seasons for Ajax
Antony is a left-footed player who has mostly played right wing for Ajax under coach Ten Hag. The Brazilian will now help to balance out United's lopsided attack, which has been led by right-footed forwards.
The United manager is delighted to have him on board, and when asked if the former Ajax man will operate on the right flank, he replied, "Yes, if it happens. We'd like to do it. He has the right fighting spirit."
There are numerous competitions for Manchester United, and signing players to improve the quality and size of the squad is a wise move for the Red Devils. Ten Hag is super happy with the step his team has taken and is looking forward for a great season.
"We now have the opportunity to choose, and I consider myself fortunate to be in that position. We created that situation, so well done, in my opinion "added the ex-Ajax coach
