He signed a contract until 2018
19-year-old Cameroonian goalkeeper, Onana, leaves Barça. One of the promising young players of La Masia, Barça's Academy, will play from now on at Ajax. The lack of chances to play in Barça B and first team, so the possibility to grow as a player, made him take this decision.
Onana, who signed a contract with the Dutch club until 2018, said he was "very happy with the change. Many teams were interested but when Ajax called me I didn't have any doubts. Their style and their confidence with young players were key."
Ajax's Football director, the former Barça player Marc Overmars, said "Onana has a lot of talent and in the future, he might compete for the place with Cillessen," the current starter goalkeeper.
