Manchester United have confirmed they have reached agreement to sign Brazil winger Antony from Ajax.

The deal is for an initial fee of 95m euros (£81.3m) – which will be the joint-fourth most expensive signing in Premier League history.

It is subject to a medical, personal terms being finalised and international clearance.

Club statement from Man Utd reads: “Manchester United has reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Antony, subject to a medical, player terms being finalised, and international clearance.”

Antony, 22, scored 24 goals and provided 22 assists in 82 appearances for Ajax.

The deal includes a potential 5m euros (£4.27m) of add-ons – making him United’s second most expensive signing, ahead of the £80m paid for defender Harry Maguire.

The £89m paid for Paul Pogba remains the club’s record.
