André Onana:
Since 2019, Onana has experienced a rollercoaster journey. Following a doping suspension in 2021, he bounced back to feature in the 2023 Champions League final with Internazionale. A subsequent move to Manchester United for £44.1m ensued, where performances have been inconsistent for both club and country, Cameroon.

Noussair Mazraoui:
After departing Ajax on a free transfer in 2022, Mazraoui joined Bayern Munich. The versatile full-back, capable on both flanks, played a pivotal role in Morocco’s 2022 World Cup semi-final run. However, his form in Germany has been lackluster, leading to speculation of a potential sale this summer.

Joël Veltman:
Brighton secured Veltman’s services for a mere €1m in 2020. Renowned for his consistency, Veltman remains a crucial figure at the club, symbolized by his continued homage to former teammate Abdelhak Nouri, wearing the No 34 shirt.

Matthijs de Ligt:
Captaining Ajax at just 19, De Ligt’s talent earned him a €75m move to Juventus in 2019. His recent switch to Bayern solidified his status as a sought-after defender. De Ligt expressed a desire to return to Ajax someday, albeit humorously suggesting a reunion with the entire 2019 squad.

Daley Blind:
After departing Manchester United in 2018, Blind’s career flourished with league titles at Bayern and stints at Girona. Diagnosed with a heart condition, Blind continues to defy expectations, contributing significantly to his teams’ successes.

Nicolás Tagliafico:
Tagliafico’s club career saw a decline at Lyon following his impressive stint at Ajax. However, he maintained his place in Argentina’s national team, achieving Copa América and World Cup triumphs in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

Donny van de Beek:
Once a standout for Ajax, Van de Beek’s move to Manchester United in 2022 failed to ignite his career, marked by disappointing loan spells at Everton and Eintracht Frankfurt. Despite personal milestones, including fatherhood, Van de Beek’s professional future remains uncertain.

David Neres:
After joining Ajax in 2019, Neres struggled to maintain his position under Erik ten Hag and eventually moved to Shakhtar Donetsk. Amidst geopolitical tensions, Neres secured a move to Benfica but is yet to rediscover his best form.

Dusan Tadic:
Tadic’s pivotal role in Ajax’s success culminated in a move to Fenerbahce in 2023. Despite departing, Tadic retains legendary status in Amsterdam, with his contributions immortalized in the club’s history.

Lasse Schöne:
Following a challenging stint at Genoa, Schöne returned to NEC, marking a homecoming after enduring a tumultuous period in Italy. Despite setbacks, Schöne continues to contribute to Dutch football at 37 years old.

Frenkie de Jong:
De Jong’s move to Barcelona in 2019 validated his talent, establishing him as one of Europe’s finest midfielders. Currently in his prime at 26, De Jong remains a pivotal figure for both club and country.

Hakim Ziyech:
Ziyech’s transition to Chelsea in 2020 has been underwhelming, despite a Champions League triumph in 2021. Uncertainty looms over his future, with a loan spell at Galatasaray highlighting the challenges he faces.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar:
Following his retirement in 2021, Huntelaar assumed a technical role at Ajax. Despite recent absence, Huntelaar’s legacy remains intact, symbolizing a pivotal era in the club’s history.

Kasper Dolberg:
Dolberg’s move to Nice in 2019 was marred by off-field incidents, including a theft controversy. After a brief stint at Anderlecht, Dolberg continues his professional journey amidst personal challenges.

Daley Sinkgraven:
Injuries plagued Sinkgraven’s tenure at Ajax, prompting a move to Bayer Leverkusen. Subsequent transfers to Las Palmas underscore Sinkgraven’s perseverance amidst adversity.

Lisandro Magallán:
Magallán’s brief stint at Ajax was followed by loan spells at various clubs before settling in Mexico. Despite setbacks, Magallán’s contributions to Ajax’s journey remain a part of his legacy.


Hugo Lloris:
Lloris’s record-breaking tenure with France contrasts with a turbulent period at Tottenham, marked by errors and a subsequent loss of the No. 1 spot. A move to LAFC in MLS signifies a new chapter for the veteran goalkeeper.

Kieran Trippier:
Trippier’s time at Atlético Madrid was overshadowed by a ban for breaching betting regulations. Despite success at Newcastle and an influential role for England, Trippier’s future remains uncertain due to injury concerns.
