Richard Arnold has seemingly confirmed that Antony will be joining Manchester United.
In a video posted by @cetredevils, he nodded when asked “Are we getting Antony?”
He appears to be directing that nod straight to the fans.
Arnold even appears to say “Yes!”

With United preparing a €95m offer for the Brazilian, it certainly looks like a deal is close to completion.
Antony could provide a fantastic option for Erik ten Hag as he looks to add weapons to his attacking line up.
The Peoples Person reported on the impending bid yesterday.
The statistics have also been intensely examined, comparing him to the likes of Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez – revealing interesting things about his underlying numbers.
Antony would be the first attacker to join United this summer.
While a Southampton start would be unlikely regardless of how quickly Arnold can potentially reach a deal, owing to work permit issues, he could well be in line to play against Leicester in the following fixture if all goes well.
