There has been an update on the possible transfer of Donny van de Beek to Manchester United and it’s safe to say that a lot of the Red Devils fan base are excited by the news.
According to @MikeVerweij in de telegraaf and tweeted out by utdreport, van de Beek will leave Ajax for United and will sign a five-year contract. The transfer fee is around €45m (£40.3m) including bonuses and the paperwork and medical is set to follow imminently.
This would really make the midfield trio a threat to all opposition defences, proven by the Dutchman’s stats as the 23-year-old had a very good season in 2019/20, managing to pick up 10 goals and 11 assists in all competitions whilst averaging 1.9 shots, 1.8 key passes and two tackles a game, per WhoScored – this shows that he can make a big impact all over the pitch.
Van de Beek’s statistics suggest that he is a well-rounded midfielder and he was part of the Ajax side that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season, so United could have found themselves a very good player to try and help them challenge for the title next season.
Here is what fans said following the news:
