Earlier today it was reported that Manchester United and Ajax had made immense progress in their negotiations regarding the transfer of Antony Matheus dos Santos. Several reports suggested that both clubs were really close to finally reaching an agreement for a fee of around €100 million with add-ons included.

Now Fabrizio Romano has reported on his Twitter account that the English club is currently preparing the player’s official contract in order to get it ready once the deal is fully agreed upon with the current Eredivisie champions to waste no time, as Erik ten Hag wants the player to train with his new teammates as soon as possible so he could play the next match.

The Italian reporter claims his sources have told him that Antony’s contract with the Red Devils will be valid until 2027 with an option to extend it for another year until 2028. There is no release clause included as the club and the player aren’t interested in adding one at the moment. This will mean that the Brazilian will sign a five-year deal.

In addition to this, the Brazilian Thiago Fernandes reported that Antony’s former club Sao Paulo will receive 20% of the transfer fee that Ajax and Manchester United agree upon because of the sell-on clause the Brazilian club added to the contract they signed with Ajax when they sold him back in 2020. They are set to earn about £16.7m.

The end of the saga

Finally, it looks like Erik ten Hag will get the player he always wanted to reinforce the attack of Manchester United. The Dutch manager believe the team needed a quality left-footed right winger, and as he knew Antony from his days coaching him at Ajax, he had no doubts in making him his transfer priority, even if it took longer than expected.
