Ajax’s technical director Edwin Van Der Sar has warned every suitor that their goalkeeper Andre Onana won’t be sold at a cheap price.
Onana has made it clear that the wants to leave Ajax this season.
Onana had said of his future in April: “It was five great years here. But now my time has come to take a [next] step.
“We made that appointment last year. I don’t know yet what will happen, but my ambitions and agreements are clear.”
His boss Ten Hag has also hinted that he might leave.
“Andre is very important to us and of course we don’t want to lose him,” Ten Hag told Dutch paper Algemeen Dagblad.
“But it’s true that we have an agreement from last year about the development scenario and what steps we will take if the right club comes in at the right price.”
However, their technical director Edwin Van Der Sar has now said that the right price is important in the sale of Onana.
“In January last year, people said we were going to lose seven or eight players but we lost only two key members,” Van der Sar told Reuters.
“Last year, we made verbal agreements with Onana, Tagliafico, Van de Beek to stay another season and then we look to help each other and find the next step in their careers. Nothing has changed.
“There won’t be a 50% discount. The clubs can forget about that.”
