Man Utd agree deal for Brazilian sensation
Manchester United have reached an agreement with Ajax to sign Antony, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Red Devils have been determined to land the Brazil international throughout the summer, and they have finally secured his services.
After failing with bids of €60m, €80m and €90m, United have eventually agreed to meet the reported €100m price tag set by the Dutch outfit.
Ajax were initially holding out for a fixed fee, but they have now agreed to accept a lesser sum up front with performance-based add-ons included.
Antony is set to become United's fifth summer signing after the arrivals of Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro.
United plan to continue their spending spree in the final days of the transfer window. They are currently in talks to sign goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.
Aside from a new shot-stopper, the club are also eyeing a new midfielder, right-back. A new striker could be signed if Cristiano Ronaldo heads for an exit.
