Manchester United signed Antony in the final days of the transfer window after a long transfer saga. Ajax were determined not to sell the player but Antony went public with his wish to leave Ajax and join Manchester united. This forced the Dutch club to sell the Brazilian.
The Premier League club signed the 22-year-old for a huge €100 million including add-ons. Erik Ten Hag is a huge fan of his former player and wanted him at all costs. He signed for United last week and made his debut at Old Trafford immediately against the mighty Arsenal side who have won all their Premier League matches till then.
