I love everything about this deal: talented, young, Ajax/Barca background, excellent passing, no transfer fee. 10/10 transfer move imo

This guy was making 1.2m at Ajax iirc. Now we're giving him 3m after not playing a year and barely offering 1.5m to Handanovic to stay as backup, who will most likely leave us.

None of it makes sense.

He is signing on a free, let’s be realistic here. When there is no transfer fee the salary is always grossed up. He is in line with a lot of our other projected starters. If Handa leaves that’s his choice but we are being pretty fair with someone who has been trending downwards in performance for 2 years. I also haven’t heard that Handanovic is leaving yet.

I'm happy to hear it's basically official. Having Onana start with Handa on the bench for next season would be nice. I'm sure Onana could learn a lot from him.

That's probably because he himself isn't sure of his next move either.

He either stays for a demoted bench role, losing the captaincy as well, or moves to another club to be a starter.

He's still a top 3 GK in this league. Worst case scenario he'll be top 5 next season. That's Onana's best case scenario.

No it’s not. We get it you’re not an Onana fan. I can already feel you lining him up to be your new Conte/Lukaku.

Handanovic isn’t the player he was 3-4 years ago. Every Inter fan can see that. There is a strong possibility Onana will be better then him as early as next year. Even if it takes a season it’s a good investment for the club.

This year Handanovic has been a top 3 gk in serie a for sure.

I still find it very weird how a ''worldclass'' gk like Onana is being benched by a 38 year old nobody at Ajax. Its not like he's being benched by some promising keeper with a future at that club.

Personally, I want to believe it's true, that an above average SerieA keeper like Sportiello is about as good as someone with European reputation like Onana. That would mean the league is very strong, just underrated.

Realistically though, I'm very skeptical.

Hes cleared to play for 2 months now. He only played a cup game vs some low tier team and an unimportant game in CL vs Besiktas.
Perhaps the team is just angry that he's leaving. Idk, we will see in top 16 of CL. Id expect him to start.

Yes and he is pretty polarizing amongst Ajax fans for the way he’s leaving the club. You can see plenty of comments from Ajax’s fans here they don’t hold back.

A quick read on an Ajax forum will answer that question. Look at the comments in response to him stating a CL match a few a little over a month ago.

Good news is that even if he wont get any playing time for Ajax, he will play in the african cup. I'll check out how he'll be doing. Cameroon is also one of the favorites.
