Reports suggest that Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana is content at the club, despite attracting interest for his role in their run to the Champions League semi-finals last season. 

The famous Dutch club have reportedly rejected a bid from Manchester United, who face uncertainty with regards to their goalkeeping situation.

David de Gea had a less convincing season between the sticks last year, but is still regarded to be their best option going forward. However, the Red Devils still haven’t managed to agree a new contract with the keeper and are reportedly considering replacements should he leave.

The Spanish international has been at United for eight years but hasn’t challenged for the league title since winning it in 2013, as United have struggled to match the standards set by Alex Ferguson.

Onana is said to be one of several names on the club’s shortlist of potential replacements and had even put in a bid that was subsequently rejected.

The Cameroon international is still only 23 but has already made over 100 appearances for Ajax after breaking into the senior team from their distinguished academy.

Mathijs De Ligt looks set to join Frenkie de Jong out of the exit door at Ajax this summer, but Onana is one young starlet that sounds set to stay.

He’s currently focused on helping retain Cameroon retain the Africa Cup Of Nations title, and doesn’t appear to be distracted by transfer gossip.

“It is important to me that I play at a good level and that I can continue to develop,” Onana told Dutch outlet Voetbal International,  as reported in The Metro.
