New Man Utd star breaks silence on £20m agent payment war

Antony has been at the centre of a £20m tug-of-war between two agencies, who both claim to have had controlling influence over his £85m transfer from Ajax to Manchester United

New Manchester United star Antony has hit out at an agency claiming to have orchestrated his record-breaking £85million move to Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old winger’s switch from Ajax, the biggest in Dutch football history, was announced on transfer deadline day, prompting a battle over which company should take the £20m bonus payment. As exclusively reported by Mirror Football, two different agencies each believe that they had the biggest hand in Antony’s transfer.

But following his dream debut for the Red Devils in Sunday’s emphatic 3-1 win against Arsenal, he has now shunned one of the parties. Forza Sports Group, whose owner and leading agent is with Revien Kanhai, stated on social media that they’d had controlling influence of the “worldwide biggest transfer this year.”

That was despite Junior Pedroso – Antony’s personal agent – insisting in South America that he’d brokered the mega deal. The Brazil international has now spoken out amid the dispute, shutting down Forza’s claims. “This must be a joke!??!!” Antony wrote on his Instagram story.

“After so much work by our team/family, an unknown person wants to take control of my transfer. I kindly ask you to delete my name from your publication, as YOU were not involved in the negotiation of my contract nor the negotiation of the transfer between the two clubs #respect.”

As United’s second-most expensive transfer of all-time, the Sao Paulo academy product came to England with lofty expectations. And it didn’t take him long to deliver, scoring 35 minutes into his debut after Erik ten Hag handed him a surprise start in front of the Old Trafford faithful.
