"This is an incredible moment in my career to join one of the most iconic clubs in the world," said Antony.

"I'm thankful to everyone who has believed in me, especially my family and all my coaches and teammates, because I could not have gotten here without them.

"Playing under Erik ten Hag at Ajax was perfect for me and my development. His style of football and coaching brings out the best in me, and I am excited by what he has told me about his plans and ambitions in Manchester."

Antony scored 24 goals and registered 22 assists for Ajax in all competitions after he joined them from Sao Paulo in 2020.

He is expected to make his Premier League debut against Arsenal on Sunday at Old Trafford.
