Ajax: Overmars: "David Neres has an offer from Atlético Madrid"

Ajax's Director of Sport told Algemeen Dagblad that Atlético have placed a bid for the Brazilian winger. The club denied the claims to Diario AS.


Ajax's Director of Sport Marc Overmars has claimed in an interview with Algemeen Dagblad that Atlético Madrid have presented a formal offer for David Neres, but added that the club intends to keep the winger, who is reported to be keen to move on.

Neres' progression with Ajax

"Next week will be decisive for David Neres. He has received an offer from Atlético Madrid. We'll discuss that with him over the next few days but our intention is that he remains at Ajax next season. He had the chance to move to China during the winter transfer window but we wouldn't allow him to leave. Look at how it turned out - that was a good decision for Ajax, and for him. Now he's an international with Brazil. Neres' progress is all down to Ajax, the team and of course the coach, Erik ten Hag. He can play an important role for the team but I'm sure he might see things differently", Overmars explained.

However, club sources at Atlético have told AS that no such offer has been made for Neres.
