Ajax board have transfer agreements in place with Manchester United-linked Donny van de Beek, Andre Onana and Nicolas Tagliafico, meaning all will be allowed to quit the club this summer, manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed.
Donny has been regularly linked with a switch to Manchester United, while Real Madrid also maintain an interest in the talented midfielder.
A move to Chelsea for shot-stopper Onana has been mooted, while Arsenal and the Blues have been touted with an interest in Tagliafico, so all transfers are possible.
Erik is expecting Tagliafico to move on this summer and while he isn’t ruling out Van de Beek and Onana staying at Ajax for another term, he admits that agreements are in place to let them leave should an acceptable offer come in.
‘The transfer market will start in August – the top leagues are now being played out, so the money flows are maintained,’ Erik told Het Parool, via MEN.
‘The market value of players will be slightly depressed, but not much. Based on their performance and ambition, a number of our players also want to make the move abroad.
‘Agreements have been made with Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, but it remains to be seen whether the market is indeed breaking loose.’
Meanwhile, Manchester United are allegedly close to confirming the landing of Marc Jurado, who is quitting Barcelona this summer.
While the Catalan side have high hopes for the 16-year-old defender, club officials were unable to agree to terms with the prospect’s agents.
That has resulted in confirmation that the talented right-back will be departing Camp Nou, increasing the possibility of a move to Old Trafford.
Although Marc has not provided any hints regarding his next destination, Metro has claimed that the player will likely sign for United.
