In a message on social media, Ajax forward Antony Santos addressed Erik ten Hag: “I want to wish you all the best at your new club.
“I also want to thank you for everything you taught me. I am thankful for all the opportunities and learning every day.
“Know that I will always stand with you if you need me.”
It has been suggested by Brazilian media that the 22-year-old could follow Ten Hag to Manchester United when the summer transfer window reopens.
The Red Devils are looking for attacking reinforcements given Edinson Cavani’s departure and the uncertainty surrounding Mason Greenwood’s future at the club.
Antony could slot it on the right side of the attack at Old Trafford, thus allowing the Dutch manager to move Jadon Sancho to the left on a permanent basis.
