Ajax boss responds to claims Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign Antony



Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder has responded to claims that Manchester United have reached an agreement with Ajax to sign Antony for €99million.

The Ajax board reportedly reached an agreement to accept the bid as they believed the offer from Manchester United was too good to turn down.

Ajax boss Schreuder was unaware of any update to the transfer saga after the match against Utrecht – which Ajax won 2-0 – but was clearly frustrated about the possibility of losing a player he had expected to keep.

Asked about a deal for Antony seemingly being done for €99m, Schreuder told ESPN via Metro: “I would make it a €100m deal then! You would have to ask [CEO] Edwin van der Sar or Hamstra about this.”

Later in the interview, though, the Ajax boss made it clear how annoyed he would be to lose Antony, continuing: “Nowadays everything is about money. I find this sad.

“But this is our world now. It’s very sad and I don’t approve these things that are happening to us.”
