English Premier League: Potential global star – Van der Sar on the dear Brazilian star for Man United

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar said Manchester United’s offer for Anthony over the summer was too good to be ignored.

However, he noted that the Brazilian, who joined the Red Devils over the summer, is a “potential global star”.

Manchester United signed the 22-year-old for £85m, making him the most expensive signing of all time after Paul Pogba.

Anthony has since scored three goals for the club against Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton.

Ajax chief executive Van der Sar admits the Dutch side were keen to keep the Brazil international for another year but could not refuse the huge offer from Old Trafford.

“I’m still young, still with potential,” Van der Sar told The Athletic.

“We would have liked to have kept him here for a year longer but the fees were too high.

“United have challenged us to go as far as possible. They have a potential world star.”
