Transfer of Antony from Ajax Amsterdam pending



Transfer of Antony from Ajax Amsterdam pending

Manchester United want to sign Antony, but Ajax Amsterdam don’t want to sell their star player at any price.

Manchester United’s planned transfer of Ajax star Antony is becoming more and more of a test of patience for the Red Devils. According to information from SPOX and GOAL the Dutch insist on their transfer fee of 80 million euros. This is well above the 60 million euros last offered by Manchester United.

Even if the Premier League club are willing to pay the €80m deal for the Brazilian, a move is by no means certain. Ajax Amsterdam have already raked in more than €100m this summer from the sales of Ryan Gravenberch, Lisandro Martinez, Sebastien Haller Nicolas Tagliafico and Dominik Kotarski. With this money, Ajax could easily keep Antony, who has been contracted until 2025.

Antony: 22 points for Ajax last season

The Brazilian’s departure is not planned at the moment, although the move to Old Trafford is insisted on by new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

The Red Devils’ new boss has worked alongside Antony at Ajax for the last two seasons. Last season, Antony recorded 12 goals and 10 assists in 32 competitive games for Ajax.
