Star reinforcement! Manchester United brought the Brazilian Antony for almost one hundred million euros

“I’ve had great years at Ajax, but this is a big moment in my career. I’m ready for a new challenge at one of the most famous clubs in the world,” Antony said for the website of the currently twelfth Premier League team.

The nine-time Brazilian international will start again under the leadership of coach Erik ten Hag, with whom he worked for the past two seasons in Ajax. “He has big plans and ambitions for Manchester. His style of football and coaching gets the best out of me,” said Antony.

Last year’s Olympic champion played 82 competitive matches for Ajax, scoring 24 goals and setting up 22 for teammates. He previously played for Sao Paulo.

The “Red Devils” got another big boost after an unsuccessful start to the season at the end of the transfer period. After Paul Pogba, Antony became the second most expensive player in the club’s history, previously another Brazilian Casemiro came from Real Madrid for 70 million euros (1.7 billion crowns).

United have been pursuing Dúbravka since last week, the 33-year-old Slovakian representative should cover the back of No. 1 goalkeeper David de Gea. Based on the agreement between the clubs, Manchester will be able to get the native of Žilina on a transfer at the end of the season.

Dúbravka worked in the Czech league first in the 2016/17 season in Liberec and then in autumn 2017 in Sparta. He left for Newcastle in January 2018 on a six-month loan. He then transferred to this Premier League club in the summer.
