Manchester United fans think chief executive Richard Arnold just confirmed a deal for Antony.
The Red Devils are expected to table a third bid for the £85million-rated forward on Friday.
Ajax are reluctant to sell but the 22-year-old Brazil star has gone on strike to push through a move to Old Trafford.
talkSPORT understands United are yet to agree a deal with the Eredivisie club – but a viral video of Red Devils chief Arnold has fans feeling confident.
In the clip, a supporter asks Arnold if the club are signing Antony as the United chief gets in a car.
Arnold appears to nod and say ‘yes’ in response, sending fans into a frenzy on social media.
United are looking for a strong finish to an underwhelming transfer window and recently announced the £70m signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid.
Despite failing to make any progress on a £70m deal for Frenkie de Jong since May, talkSPORT understands United have not given up their pursuit of the Barcelona midfielder.
The Premier League side are also interested in PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo and want to sign Martin Dubravka from Newcastle as a back-up to David de Gea.
