The Brazilian winger has been eager to join the Premier League side lately, while his club Ajax has been making it difficult for the footballer to leave Amsterdam.
In an interview when he was asked about why Ajax don’t want to let him go, he said“ I’m not asking Ajax to release me, I’m asking Ajax to sell me with the highest bid ever for Eredivisie player. I’ve been insisting on this theme since February so that the club could rebuild the team with peace of mind.
Personal terms have been agreed to a fee of €100m and his contract runs until June 2027 with a 2028 option. It will be signed tomorrow.
Paperwork is being prepared and it will be an Eredivisie record fee and Antony should be in Manchester by next week.
