Ajax keeper Andre Onana was asked about Barcelona transfer targets De Ligt and De Jong this week. Onana has a unique perspective on the situation because he played for Barcelona a few years ago, and now plays with the two players Barcelona seem to be targeting.
A good exam for you and also for De Jong and De Ligt. Are they ready to play for a team like Barça?
Yes, I think they’re ready to play for any team. They’re young players, but they have a lot of talent, a lot of hunger and I know they want to conquer the world. I think that, above all at Barça, they would do very well. I have spoke various times with them because I was there and I know how the people work there.
They asked about Barça?
Yes, they asked what it was like there.
I would love to be a fly on the wall for these conversations between the three Ajax players. I’m sure Barcelona would love to be as well.
