Ajax extension over more money: Onana confirms “Interest from big clubs”





Oversmars said, ‘please stay’ 

The departure of Frenkie de Jong (21) has already been confirmed. Matthijs de Ligt (19), Nicolás Tagliafico (26), David Neres (22), Donny van de Beek (21), Dusan Tadic (30), and Hakim Ziyech (26), are also linked to a summer transfer. Contrary to this trend, their club, Ajax Amsterdam, announced an extension to the contract of André Onana (Photo) at the end of March. According to the 23-year-old goalkeeper, Ajax extended despite several cash-strapped clubs’ interest.

“There’s been interest from some big clubs who could have offered me a lot more money than Ajax. But Ajax has done a lot for me and I feel at home here,” Cameroon’s national team goalkeeper is quoted as saying by the Dutch daily “De Telegraaf.” Onana moved from FC Barcelona’s youth to Amsterdam for 150,000 euros in January 2015. Until now he had been mostly linked with a return to the Catalans.

However, those interested must now exercise patience: “This extension means that I will stay at least one more season,” Onana announced when signing his new contract. Marc Overmars also plays a big role in the keepers future. “He brought me here and asked me, ‘André, please stay.’ Sometimes it’s important to listen to the people who have helped you in the past, such as Overmars or Edwin van der Sar,” explained Onana.
