Manchester United’s reported interest in Ajax midfield star Donny Van de Beek is exciting plenty of fans on social media.
The Dutchman announced himself on the European stage during Ajax’s incredible run to the Champions League semi-finals last season and appeared destined for a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid this summer.
However, the Times report that while a deal with Los Blancos is agreed in principle, a move is now in doubt due to the financial crisis facing the Spanish league in the coronavirus pandemic.
This has encouraged United to renew their interest in the 23-year-old who they were keen on bringing to Old Trafford back in August.
Van de Beek is a classy, versatile midfielder who could be a fantastic signing for United if they can hijack Real Madrid’s move for him.
