Edson Álvarez believes that it is “the right time” to leave Ajax
Despite the rumors that link him to Borussia Dortmund, the Mexican didn’t want to give too much away.
It seems that Edson Álvarez is already packing his bags for what will be his departure from Ajax to a new team in Europe.
The Mexican midfielder is the subject of interest from several clubs after a brilliant spell with the Amsterdam club and he himself recognises that the time has come for him to leave in search of greater challenges in his career.
In an interview with Dutch media outlet Voetbal International, he acknowledged that, after winning several trophies with Ajax, it is the right time to transfer to another team.
“I spent four wonderful years here and this place still feels like home to me. I won a lot of trophies and developed. This is what could make it the right time to take the next step in my career. But everything has to be perfect. I have to improve, but so do Ajax,” he said.
Media reports suggest that Edson will join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. The rumours are not news to Álvarez, but he prefers to be patient and not get his hopes up.
“Of course it’s nice when you are linked with a big club, but Ajax is also a big club. So I will always show respect to everyone in and around Amsterdam. I am very grateful to everyone here,” he added.
