Antony Santos hopes to make the squad this weekend when Manchester United take on Arsenal
The former Ajax star completed his move to Manchester United after a €100m transfer deal was agreed by United and the Dutch Champions.
Leaving Ajax wasn’t a walk in the park for Antony as the Eredivisie side refused to let him leave on many occasions until he started forcing his way out.
The Winger is yet to be handed a jersey number at Manchester United after dropping his favorite Ajax shirt number 11 to make a trip to Manchester where their number 11 is currently occupied by Mason Greenwood.
Just like Greenwood, Santos is a long term asset for United, currently 22-years-old and his contract with United going until 2027 when he will have an option to extend an extra year.
Currently, Antony Santos sits at the high ranks as one of the three most expensive Manchester United players.
Since his arrival, one of the main questions that has popped the internet is, ‘What Is Antony Santos Jersey Number?’
Somtosport understands that Manchester United are not planning to strip Mason Greenwood off the number 11 shirt which is actually Antony’s favorite shirt despite the English man’s unavailability.
Greenwood was accused of rape and assault by his girlfriend months ago but recent investigations have proved the 20-year-old innocent and all charges dropped but he is yet to return to the squad.
Antony Santos will now most likely settle for the number 21 which is one of the available numbers.
The number 21 was last worn by former Manchester United midfielder, Ander Herrera before he left for Paris Saint German, leaving the shirt vacant since then.
Although it’s not yet made official but our sources closer to the club has confirmed that the number 21 is the closest number that Antony would be getting unless a sudden decision is made to take away the number 11 from Mason Greenwood.
