Antony casts doubt over Ajax future amid Manchester United interest

Manchester United appear to have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Ajax winger Antony.


The winger has been linked with Manchester United for much of the summer and, in recent days, those links have become pretty strong once again.

Reports from the Netherlands on Friday suggested that the 22-year-old did not take part in training despite being at the club’s training complex.

De Telegraaf also reported that Ajax had rejected an €80m bid from United on Thursday and that it was unclear whether or not his absence was down to an injury or his unhappiness at seeing a move being rejected.

Now, Antony has refused to commit his future to the Dutch outfit.

When asked if he could offer Ajax fans assurances that he would be staying, he replied: “No, to be perfectly honest, I can’t. What I can say is that I want to come to the right decision with my family, business partners and Ajax, which is good for everyone.

“In the end, God determines my future. I am very happy at Ajax, I have a contract until the summer of 2025 and I will give everything for this beautiful club for every second.

“I wear the shirt with pride and from day one I feel at home. If we all decide that I will stay here, then I know that this is the best thing for me and the club.

“It’s not like I have to leave. Now I am focusing on playing football and have put all other matters in the hands of my agents and my brother. They will advise me on what is best.”
