Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that during the next transfer window he could sell three of his main players.
With the likes of Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Real Madrid have all been linked given the financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.
Ten Hag has admitted that offers to take on new roles elsewhere have been made, while he has confirmed that none of the trios will be able to leave on the cheap.
Speaking to Het Parool, Ten 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 must be clear whether the market is indeed breaking loose.
“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.”
For Hakim Ziyech to move to Stamford Bridge next week, Ajax has already agreed on a deal with Chelsea.
