Ajax star Donny van de Beek ‘open to Premier League move this summer’ amid interest from Manchester United… but Dutchman already has an offer from Real Madrid
- Donny van de Beek was one of Ajax’s top performers in Europe last season
- The 22-year-old midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester United
- However, other top European clubs, including Real Madrid, have shown interest
Donny van de Beek is open to a move to the Premier League when he leaves Ajax this summer, with Manchester United ready to make him an offer.
The 22-year-old was one of the Dutch club’s stand-out performers as they reached the Champions League semi-final last season.
The Holland international has ruled out moving during the January window but according to Sky Sports, a move away from the Amsterdam Arena is near enough a certainty come the end of the season.

That could see him headed for England’s top-flight, although Real Madrid also hold a strong interest.
The Spanish giants are willing to pay up to £55million for Van de Beek and they have made the Dutchman an offer, but no deal has yet been agreed.
Van de Beek, whose contract runs until June 2022, recently played down talk of him moving this month.
Real Madrid are also thought to be interested in the services of the 22-year-old midfielder
Asked after a friendly with Club Brugge during a warm-weather training camp if he was set for a move, he told FOX Sports Netherlands: ‘It is not that I can or want to do something at the moment.
‘I have said it before, and I will say it again: I will remain at Ajax this season. And maybe next season as well.
‘These reports about Real Madrid or Man United are a good sign, but it is not important now. I’ve said I will stay at Ajax and I will do so for 100 per cent.’
