Manchester United have completed the €100m (£85.5m) signing of Antony from Ajax. The 22-year-old winger signs contract until 2027 with option of further year.

The 22-year-old winger has signed a contract at Old Trafford until 2027, with the option of a further year.

Antony becomes the second-most expensive signing in United’s history after the £89.6m arrival of Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

United are set to pay a guaranteed €95m (£81.3m) to Ajax, with an additional €5m (£4.2m) in add-ons.

“This is an incredible moment in my career to be joining one of the most iconic clubs in the world,” Antony said.

“I’m thankful to everyone who has believed in me, especially my family, and all my coaches and teammates, because I could not have got here without them.

“Playing under Erik ten Hag at Ajax was perfect for me and my development. His style of football and coaching brings out the best in me, and I am excited by what he has told me about his plans and ambitions in Manchester.”

“My time at Ajax was fantastic and I will always be grateful for the trust they put in me, but now I am ready for the next challenge, and I can’t wait to join my new team-mates and play my part in bringing success to Manchester United.”
