Barcelona: Many fans understand why Andre Onana turned them down

Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has revealed that he turned down the opportunity to move to Barcelona during the summer, as reported by RMC Sport.

Will Barcelona win La Liga this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 23-year-old, who came through La Masia, opted to stay in Amsterdam, feeling it wasn’t the right time to relocate to the Camp Nou:

Many Barcelona fans have shown understanding about why Onana made the choice he did, citing the fact that last year’s backup goalkeeper, Jasper Cillessen, was only used 11 times throughout the campaign, as per Transfermarkt.

In comparison, Onana played a total of 55 games, helping Ajax to the Eredivisie title, KNVB Beker victory, and Champions League semi-final.

With the likelihood of him usurping Marc-Andre ter Stegen very slim, even Barca fans can see that it would likely be a drop for him to go to their club and sit on the bench for most of the time.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the comment, including posts from understanding Barcelona fans, can be seen below:
