It was just announced that Ajax has accepted Manchester United’s €40 million plus bid for star midfielder Donny Van De Beek. It’s understood that the Dutch International Star had already agreed to personal terms on a contract through 2025 with the Red Devils. United is expected to confirm his arrival next week.
The Midfielder reportedly attracted interest from several leading clubs in Europe, but United’s talks with Van de Beek’s representatives and close ties to Ajax Chief Executive Edwin Vab der Sar helped push through a deal.
Van de Beek, scored 41 goals in 175 appearances for Ajax, addressed speculation of reported interest from United and Real Madrid in January, saying he would not leave Ajax until this summer at the earliest.
This is another move by the team that shows they mean business and are riding the youth train.
