kick442.com has stumbled on a video of a brief informal conversation between Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola and Ajax Amsterdam shot stopper,Andre Onana.
Our sources say Pep likes the 22 year old Cameroonian and moves for his service could be made in the summer.
The duo are said to have met in Netherlands last week after Ajax Amsterdam suffered a 1-2 defeat to visiting Real Madrid.
Onana has all the characters the Spanish manager may want in a Goalkeeper,young,good with the ball on his feet, Intelligent and reads the Game very well.
Pep s supervised Onana when the kid just got to Spain in 2010 to join La Masia Academy.
La Masia is Barcelona’s feeder team and Onana’s first work place in Europe at a time when Pep was enjoying success at Camp Nou.
This was informal meeting is one to be treated with extra significance as Onana’s agent, Albert Botines is a Spaniard just like Pep and Mr Botines has a good history of doing deals in England,he is also the agent of Arsenal defender,Hector Bellerin.
Manchester City have a good Young keeper in Elderson Moraes but he lacks a serious cover or competition as Claudio Bravo who could have played that role has been injury prone in the last 12 Months and he is also ageing.
Onana has made 36 appearances in all competitions this season,kept 15 clean sheets and saved a penalty plus over 70 saves in 3103 minutes of Football for club as he remains the undisputable first choice keeper for Dutch Giants
Onana joined Ajax in 2015 from Barcelona, he is on contract with Ajax till June 2021.
It may be a busy summer for Onana as chances are that, in addition to attending his first AFCON with Cameroon,the 22 year old may also have his future to sort out.
