Muniesa close to Ajax move?

FC Barcelona starlet Marc Muniesa is on the verge of making a shock move to Holland champions Ajax, according to reports Friday in El Mundo Deportivo, although the player’s willingness to move away from Barcelona is still in question. Ajax have been pushing hard for the transfer, based apparently on the recommendation of Johan Cruyff, in a bid to replace Jan Vertonghen who was sold to Tottenham earlier this summer. Ajax Sporting Director Marc Overmars, himself a former blaugrana, confirmed the interest in the young defender: “The interest in Muniesa is correct, but nothing is yet decided.”

Whatever happens, it seems clear that FC Barcelona is not giving up their stake in the player and will likely configure the deal to be either a loan, or a sale with a guaranteed buyback option.
