Antony took a position on the future. “I WANT TO LEAVE!”

Antony was interviewed by Fabrizio Romano. The Brazilian stated directly that his will for several months was to part with Ajax. This is all at a time when Manchester United is fighting for the player’s involvement.

The Right Winger is undoubtedly one of the stars of the entire Eredivisie. Last season alone, he made the following numbers (taking into account performances on all fronts): 33 games, 12 goals and 10 assists.

It is therefore not surprising that other clubs are interested in this. There was talk of FC Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich and Juventus. Today the Brazilian is the closest to Manchester United.

The Red Devils have already reached an agreement with the 22-year-old, but still a long way to go to a consensus with Ajax, who is demanding 100 million euros.

Alfred Schreuder confessed that he was counting on Antony’s detention. What does the player himself think about this situation? In an interview with Fabrizio Romano, he noted that his employer was well aware of his willingness to leave.

“In February, my agents came to Amsterdam to inform Ajax that I wanted to leave the club to take on the new challenge, and that there would be some interested clubs, and with them certainly a great offer,” he began.

“I interrupted my vacation in June and came in person to inform Ajax’s helmsmen, including the new coach, of my willingness to leave and that they should consider the possibility as this project was tailored for two seasons,” he continued.

– During the transfer months the meetings were still going on and I also received an offer from Ajax to extend the contract. Once again I made it clear: I WANT TO LEAVE! – he confessed.

– Today at the meeting with the club, I expressed my interest in leaving, only this time with a large offer on the table. Others have already turned up! Ajax refused, arguing that he only had five days to replace me. I’m not asking Ajax to fire me, I’m asking the club to sell with the highest bid ever for an Eredivisie player. Since February, I have been pressing for the club to be able to rebuild the team safely – he noted.

– I was very happy in Amsterdam, won titles with Ajax, made friends and built part of my career, but now I REPEAT: I am ready and full of motivation to follow my story and dreams. (…) I need it to continue to perform at a high level. Ajax will always be in my heart! – ended the thread.

Manchester United’s latest offer was € 90 million. Ajax said no.

But it looks like the nine-time Canarinhos representative has already made up his mind and only has a move to Old Trafford, where Erik ten Hag has been working since this summer.
