Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar has stated that the club may let its players go if they wish to leave, but not just because the present coronavirus crisis forces their hand.
The Ajax CEO told Dutch publication: “We know players have a desire to leave after a couple of years for a better competitive rivalry, but this will only happen under Marc Overmars and Ajax conditions.”
Ajax is firm in its decision to not sell its star players for cheap prices because of the coronavirus crisis:
“There will always be some who will benefit from a crisis and some clubs will have to sell for less, but I think we’re in a lucky position due to our strong financial policy. That’s why we won’t have to sell, but we signed deals with the players. They’re not going to go below a certain price level. We’re not going to let our players go for selling prices.”
