Manchester  United Verbally Agree €100m Deal For Ajax Winger Antony

Manchester United have reached a verbal agreement worth €100m (£84m) with Ajax for the transfer of Antony.

The Red Devils have been eager to reunite Erik ten Hag with the 22-year-old all summer long, but have been unable to thrash out a deal with the Eredivisie giants.

Ajax have rejected three bids from United, the latest of which was worth around €90m,

but a breakthrough has been made in talks between the two clubs – with Antony now closing in on the move to Old Trafford that he has been desperate to make.

Antony was left out of Ajax’s squad to face Utrecht on Sunday.

Manager Alfred Schreuder said in his pre-match interview that ‘nothing had changed’ in negotiations between the two clubs –

indicating that United hadn’t offered to pay the club-record fee the Amsterdam-based giants have been seeking.

But United haven’t given up on their pursuit of Antony – with Ten Hag clear that signing the Brazilian is his number one priority –

and sources have confirmed  that a verbal agreement has been reached with Ajax

although there are still a few details to sort out. United now have just under a week to finalise terms before the summer transfer window closes.

Antony’s arrival would be a huge boost to Manchester United.
