Ajax goalkeeper Onana close to Inter

by | Sep 4, 2021 14:37

Ajax director Marc Overmars confirms goalkeeper Andre Onana has refused to sign a new contract, as it has been said for months he’ll join Inter as a free agent.

The 25-year-old shot-stopper is suspended until November after failing a doping test and his contract with Ajax is due to expire in June 2022.

“You can never say never in football, but at the moment, I don’t see him renewing his contract with us,” Overmars told Ajax TV.

“We have been very clear. We spent a great deal of time negotiating to extend his contract, but it didn’t work. We then gave him the space to make a move in the summer and that didn’t happen either.

“He could leave in January, otherwise he will go next June as a free agent.”

Transfer pundit Nicolò Schira is one of many in Italy who have reported for months now that Onana pledged his future to Inter.

The Cameroon international goalkeeper has 18 senior caps for his country and will with all likelihood be the heir to Samir Handanovic at San Siro.

    Imagine for one moment if it was a player in the youth team or a fringe player in the first time. Ajax would’ve tried to do everything to sack the players regardless of whether they were under contract or otherwise. This guy is a doper and a cheat, and yet because he is a worthwhile commodity, they’re looking to extend his contract. Why would any club want to sign a doper?

    “A doper and a cheat” – unless you have facts to prove your unfounded comment, then I think you’d be wise to refrain from making such inane comments. If you managed to research, you’d see that the medication is used to treat high-blood pressure, and to quote Edwin Van der Sar – technical director at Ajax “arguably not used for performance enhancing reasons”. WADA are known to be stringent to the point of stupidity – Paul Scholes many years ago also had similar issues around his use of salbutamol which is used for asthma (which I know well because I have it too).

    Rather than tarnish everyone under the same brush, learn the facts.


    @Migliore… Eh! never mind him, that’s rosario.
