Ajax director of football affairs, Marc Overmars is not confident about signing Luis Suarez from Barcelona this summer.

With Suarez no longer needed at Barcelona, rumours of a return to Ajax have surfaced.

Speaking to Ziggo Sport Overmars said on Suarez, “Let me put it this way: the chance that he will come is quite small. That’s a straight answer, I think. Whether there has been any contact with him? We have that with several ex-Ajax players. That is logical, you also have to maintain that.”

Overmars feels the transfer market is quiet at the moment, but confirmed serious interest in one of Ajax’s players, “It’s pretty quiet. I certainly think the market has yet to get going. That makes sense: the Champions League has only just ended, so that will start soon. There is always interest for some players. A few players look good, one player has fairly serious interest. Who that is? That will show itself in the coming weeks.”

Overmars knows nothing about Barcelona’s alleged interest in Donny van de Beek, “No idea, at least that hasn’t made it onto my plate yet.”
