    Manchester United agree deal for Ajax winger Antony

    LONDON (AFP) – Manchester United have agreed a fee that could rise to GBP85 million to sign Ajax’s winger Antony, reports said on Monday.

    The Premier League giants have agreed to pay GBP80.75 million, with a further GBP4.25 million in add-ons, the BBC, Sky Sports and other British media said ahead of the transfer window closing tomorrow.

    The 22-year-old Antony could be the second player to follow United manager Erik ten Hag from the Dutch champions to Old Trafford following the arrival of defender Lisandro Martinez.

    Tyrell Malacia, Martinez, Christian Eriksen and Casemiro have arrived so far this summer and Ten Hag is hoping to keep Cristiano Ronaldo, despite the Portuguese wanting to leave to play Champions League football.

    The 37-year-old was on the bench for United’s 1-0 win at Southampton last Saturday before making a largely anonymous substitute appearance in the second half.

    United remain adamant that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is not for sale in the second season of his second spell with the club.
