As the most expensive signing by any club in the 2022 summer transfer window

it's safe to say that expectations will be high as far as the impact that Brazilian Antony can have on Manchester United in 2022/23.

The 22-year-old was the exclamation point on a summer during which new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag attempted to upgrade the squad in the hope of injecting new life into a club coming off its worst Premier League finish.

Alongside bringing in Christian Eriksen and Real Madrid's Casemiro, Ten Hag raided his former club Ajax, for Lisandro Martinez and Antony.

Antony's arrival is United's second highest ever transfer outlay, behind Paul Pogba's £94.5 million return to the club from Juventus in 2016,

He will be eligible to make his club debut at home to Arsenal on Sunday, September 4.

United confirmed a transfer fee was agreed with Ajax on August 30, but the final deal was only confirmed on Transfer Deadline Day (September 1).

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year contract, with the option for an additional 12 months at Old Trafford, as Ten Hag looks to build his attack around the former Sao Paulo forward.
