Man United have signed Brazilian winger Antony from Ajax for a fee of 95 million euros (£82 million).

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

“I’m thankful to everyone who has believed in me, especially my family, and all my coaches and team-mates, 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.”

United have also signed Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka on a season-long loan for £2 million, subject to registration, with an option to buy for £6 million if he starts an agreed-upon number of games.

The Slovakia goalkeeper has played over 125 Premier League games in the last five seasons and has 29 caps for his country.

Antony made 82 appearances for Ajax and scored 24 goals and provided 22 assists. In 2020, he joined the Dutch champions from Sao Paulo and played under Ten Hag.

Since making his debut in October 2021, he has scored seven goals in 11 Champions League appearances for Ajax and twice in nine appearances for Brazil.

Manchester United set a record transfer fee of £89 million when they signed Paul Pogba from Juventus in August 2016.

Following the arrivals of his former Ajax teammate and defender Lisandro Martinez, midfielder Casemiro from Real Madrid, full-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, and playmaker Christian Eriksen on a free transfer, the attacker becomes United’s fifth signing of the summer.

Man United have spent more than £210 million in this transfer window to support new manager Ten Hag, while several players have left, including Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Edinson Cavani, and Andreas Pereira.
