United have now confirmed the £84million arrival of Antony.
And the Brazil international, talking to their official website, is raring to go at Old Trafford.
“That is an incredible moment in my profession to be joining some of the iconic clubs on the earth.
“I’m thankful to everyone who has believed in me, especially my family, and all my coaches and team-mates, because I couldn’t have gotten here without them.
“Playing under Erik ten Hag at Ajax was perfect for me and my development.
“His kind of football and training brings out the very best in me, and I’m excited by what he has told me about his plans and ambitions in Manchester.
“My time at Ajax was improbable and I’ll all the time be pleased about the trust they put in me, but now I’m ready for the subsequent challenge, and I can’t wait to hitch my recent team-mates and play my part in bringing success to Manchester United.”
