Pep Segura left his position as technical director of Barcelona this week and the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu reportedly offered the role to Overmars.
However, Overmars has decided to stay loyal to Ajax and will continue in his role as director of player policy.
Overmars has gained plaudits for moulding the Ajax squad that reached the Champions League semi-final last season, and also for the appointment of Erik ten Hag. He has also been linked with Arsenal recently but he has a contract in Amsterdam until 2024.
