Ajax’s Donny van de Beek has denied suggestions he’d already signed an agreement to join Real Madrid, as relayed by AS.
With Paul Pogba now apparently a mission impossible for the 13-time European champions, they’ve moved on to Van de Beek since the next name on the list of potential additions to their positions. If he make the movement, the 22-year-old would combine the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Isco Alarcon and James Rodriguez in the midfield section of the squad in Zinedine Zidane’s disposal.
After Ajax beat Sparta in the Johan Cruyff Arena on Sunday by 2-1, where he scored the opening goal, Van de Beek was requested about the situation in the mixed zone and firmly denied any arrangement with any club. The press persisted with queries, asking him also if he’d prefer Actual to Manchester United being additionally linked with a move to Old Trafford.
The Dutchman only refused to choose between the 2 clubs and labeled them both as great, but adding Ajax in there too. De Telegraaf believes that a $55 million deal has been agreed between Ajax and Real, but the player himself hasn’t made his mind up yet.
