Manchester United have agreed an £85m deal with Ajax for winger Antony.

United will pay a guaranteed £80.75m and another £4.25m in add-ons for the 22-year-old, who is expected in Manchester on Monday to have a medical.

He has to be registered by midday on Wednesday to be available for United’s Premier League game at Leicester City on Thursday. It is thought that is unlikely as Antony has to sort out a visa and work permit.

Manchester United face Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Antony was once again left out of the Ajax squad for Sunday’s game at Utrecht as talks between the clubs continued.

The attacker would become United’s fifth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of his former Ajax team-mate, defender Lisandro Martinez, midfielder Casemiro from Real Madrid, full-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord and playmaker Christian Eriksen on a free transfer.

Speculation also remains as to whether Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at the club following concerns about how the 37-year-old’s mood is affecting morale in the camp.
