Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag, has all but confirmed some of his players will be sold in the coming summer transfer window, including the Manchester United-linked Donny Van De Beek.
Speaking to Danish media outlet Het Parool, Hag said: “The transfer market will start in August – the top leagues are now being played out, so the money flows are maintained.
“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.”
He continued: “For Onana and Van de Beek, another year of Ajax could certainly be an option, for Tagliafico it is slightly different because of his age.
“In the preparation I am going to try Lisandro Martínez in that position. He has also played in midfield with us, but he is a defender,” he concluded.
Van De Beek has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford for months now, with United said to be favourites for his signature due to our relationship with their C.E.O, Edwin Van Der Sar.
