Ajax’s Brazilian winger Anthony has erupted after British media reported that the Dutch champions had rejected a latest €90m bid from Manchester United. The footballer revealed that he had a disagreement with the management of Ajax on the subject.
“Today, in a meeting with Ajax bosses, I expressed my desire to leave the club, this time with a significant offer on the table. Others have already arrived, but Ajax always refuses, arguing that they only have five days to find me a replacement. The transfer window closes on Thursday. I’m not asking Ajax to release me, I’m asking Ajax to sell me by accepting the highest offer received for a player competing in the Eredivisie,” said an angry Anthony.
Manchester United are trying to sign the 22-year-old, who played under current manager Erik ten Hag at Ajax.
Antoni netted 12 goals and 10 assists in 33 games in all competitions for the Dutch giants last season, who won their third consecutive Eredivisie title and reached the last 16 of the Champions League.
“Back in February this year, my agents came to Amsterdam to inform Ajax of my desire to leave the club to face a new challenge. It has been reported that some interested clubs will arrive and certainly a great offer with them. During the months of the transfer window there were meetings, including an offer from Ajax to renew the contract. I made it clear once again that I want to leave the club,” Anthony added.
