"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 remains to be seen 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. “In the preparation I am going to try Lisandro Martínez in that position. He has also played in midfield with us, but he is a defender.
