Ajax, São Paulo FC and Antony Matheus dos Santos have reached an agreement for the transfer of the Brazilian youth international to Ajax. The winger, who plays under the name Antony, has signed a contract which will take effect on July 1, 2020, and be valid for 5 seasons, until June 30, 2025.
Ajax will pay a transfer sum of € 15,75 million to São Paulo FC; this amount could potentially reach a maximum of € 21,75 million due to variable factors. Antony was born on February 24, 2000, in São Paulo, Brazil.
Marc Overmars, director of football affairs: “We will have to be patient for a few more months before Antony can start here, but with him, we are getting a creative player who can play in every position up front. It’s already been established that some of our players will be leaving this summer. We need to plan for that, so it’s great that we’ve been able to finalize this transfer.”
