The interview with Antony on his future and Manchester United, "Since February of this year, my agents came to Amsterdam to inform Ajax of my desire to leave the club to face new challenge and that some interested clubs would arrive and with them, certainly a great offer".

"In June of this year, I interrupted my vacation and came personally to inform the managers of Ajax, including new coach, about my wish to leave and that they should consider this possibility, because it was a project for 2 seasons".

"During the window months, meetings continued and I also received a proposal from Ajax for contract renewal. I made it clear once again… I WANT TO LEAVE".

"Today, in a meeting with the club, I expressed my old interest in leaving - this time with considerable offer on the table. Others had already arrived! Ajax refused with argument that they only have 5 days to replace me".

"I'm not asking Ajax to release me, I'm asking Ajax to sell me with the highest bid ever for Eredivisie player. I've been insisting on this theme since February so that the club could rebuild the team with peace of mind".

"I was very happy in Amsterdam, I won titles at Ajax, made friends and built part of my career, but now I REINFORCE that I am ready and full of motivation to follow my story and my dreams".

People need to listen to me and understand that my motivation moves me towards happiness. I need this to continue performing at a high level. Ajax will always be in my heart!".

 "I hope Ajax fans understand me... because the future for a football player is a totally uncertain thing and so the opportunities can be unique!"

"My message is gratitude for Ajax, club and fans". Welcome to United!
