€40m-rated Ajax first-team star rejected Man United offer

Andre Onana wants to stay at Ajax after the Dutch champions rejected a bid from Manchester United, who are struggling to reach an agreement with David De Gea over a new deal and have a shortlist of candidates to replace him if the Spain international decides to leave Old Trafford.

Andre Onana is on Manchester United’s radar and reports last month claimed that the side had submitted an offer to Ajax which was turned down.

The 23-year-old keeper has established himself as a key figure for the Dutch club, and Ajax are believed to value the Cameroon goalkeeper at €40m (£35m).

But the player himself is keen to remain at Eredivisie giants, despite interest from Manchester United. ‘It is important to me that I play at a good level and that I can continue to develop,’ he told Voetbal International

‘I am still young, and with Ajax, we have just proved how much we can achieve with this club. ‘It will not be easy to surpass that. But I want to fight for new success with Ajax.’

Meanwhile Manchester United have completed the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka in initial £45 million deal from Crystal Palace, and the Red Devils are also preparing £15 million offer for Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff.

On the other hand, the Red Devils are trying to secure the long-term future of Marcus Rashford who was demanding £300,000-a-week contract from the Premier League giants, but they do not intend on offering the youngster such wages.
