Ajax has become the champion of the Netherlands! This happened for the first time since 2014. team Erica Ten Hagah won the title a week after the tragic start in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Furthermore, at the beginning of May, the National Cup was won. In general, this season has been very successful for the Amsterdamians, although it has been ruined by the defeat of Tottenham. But can Ajax maintain its strength and its charm?
We are used to the Amsterdam club which serves as a talented supplier for the best European championships. The best are red and white, plus players lose in offseason. It happened two years ago, when the Ajax reached the Europa League final, in which it lost against Manchester United. The Dutch defenders have left Davinson Sanchez (went to Tottenham), Jairo Redewald ("Crystal Palace"), Kenny Tete ("Lyon") and midfielder Davie Klassen (Everton), and the head coach Peter Bosch accepted the Dortmund offer "Borussia". Also, a year later, the Ajax sold Justin Kluivert in "Rome" and released a free agent Amina Younes, who signed a contract with Napoli.
The most important news for Amsterdam fans are the words of ten Hagahs about going to work with Ajax. This means that the team will continue to play the brave and beautiful football of this coach. The other day ten Hag answered the question about the interest in the best clubs.
"The interest of clubs like Barcelona, Bayern and Chelsea is nice, but I have a contract with Ajax. I'm having fun here. We're already discussing future plans. I'm not going to leave now", the 49-year-old admitted.
But, of course, after the brilliant 2018/19 season, the Eredivisie champion will sell several players with whom he can earn big money. We already know the transfer to Barcelona of one of the two main assets of the Ajax – Frankie de Jong. For the 25-year-old central midfielder, the Catalan club will pay 75 million euros (bonuses excluded). Most likely, another young star of the Amsterdam team will go to Barcelona Mathias de Ligt. It has been reported that the clubs have agreed on the price for the transfer of a 19-year-old central defender: it will be 70 million euros. It remains only to agree on the size of the commission with the football player of the agent Mino Rayola. In addition, another 10.5 million euros "Ajax" will receive from the "Sevilla" for the Austrian defender Maximilian Weberthat in the winter of 2019 it was borrowed with the obligation of the subsequent repurchase.
The Ajax has not betrayed the ideals of football. But there must be a loser in the game.
Beautiful house of losers.
How much did Ajax put this team together? Only for 86 million euros!
The transfer cost 20 basic players. Six of them all came from the magnificent Amsterdam club academy.
There are many rumors about the rest of the players in the main Ajax cage. High demand for Hakim Ziyesh. It has been reported the interest for the offensive midfielder from a large number of clubs: Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea Arsenal, Inter, Roma, Everton "and" Lester ", but the the neighbors are the purchase of the Moroccan "Bavaria" and of the "Borussia" of Dortmund. According to Mirror, in the Ziesh contract they are not the biggest compensation – 29 million euros.
Surely the Amsterdam club has proposals for the sale of a 22-year-old wing David Neres, debuted in March in the Brazilian national team. According to foreign media reports, PSG, Manchester United, Arsenal, Everton and Milan are ready to fight for Neres. Al centrohavu of 22 years Donny van de beck looking at "Real", "Tottenham" and "Milan". Left back of the Argentine national team Nicolas Tallafiko is at the center of attention in Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico and Arsenal. goalkeeper Andre Onan has the opportunity to return to Barcelona, in which system he remained for five years until 2015. Even on a 30 year old Dusan Tadic Scouts have taken on a different look after the brilliant performance of the attacking midfielder in the Champions League: a Serb is associated with Bavaria and Manchester City.
"We will not sell seven players at the same time. We must remain competitive. So there will not be a massive sale," the CEO of "Ajax" promised Edwin van der Sar.
How does Ajax compensate for the loss of leaders? At the moment, confirmed three summer transfer clubs in Amsterdam. From Liege "Standard" is worth 12.5 million euros Razvan Marin. An intelligent central midfielder with good pitch. This season, the 22-year-old Romanian has played 45 games in various tournaments, scored eight goals and made nine assists. They will spend on another 5 million euro sample Cica Pieri from Heerenveen. The 18-year-old Central has 34 games, two goals and three passes. The third newcomer "Ajax" was the 19-year-old goalkeeper "Emmen" Kjell Scherpenwhose height is 204 cm. He played 34 games per season. Perhaps in a year or two they will surprise Europe as much as de Jong, de Ligt and Onan.
Martin edegor – also the summer goal of the Ajax. disclose a Leonid Slutsky in Vitesse, the Norwegian midfielder can pass from Real Madrid for a two-year contract or a full transfer for about 20 million euros. In this last case, the Spaniards want to reserve the right to redemption: after all, Edegora was transported to Madrid as a future star.
