In fact, it was precisely due to the urgency of Manchester United, which added to the deadline allowed to sign, which resulted in the very high price finally paid for the young talent and future star of Brazil.

From the moment the signing was finalized, negative comments have not stopped coming out from within the Ajax institution, from players to managers and even some assistant coaches.
