Spanish giants, Real Madrid have reportedly agreed a €55million (£47m) deal with Ajax to sign highly-rated Dutch midfielder, Donny van de Beek.
The Ajax star has been one of Europe’s most wanted midfielders following his impressive performances at the Champions League last season.
According to Marca, a deal has been agreed to take the 22-year-old to the Bernabeu but he will not arrive until next summer. It was also claimed in the report that at least one current Real player will be shown the door to make space for Van de Beek.
Van de Beek’s impending arrival in Spain comes as a blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who wanted to sign the Dutchman for Manchester United.
The update comes after Van de Beek revealed he was not going to leave Ajax anytime soon.
Speaking during Ajax’s mid-season training camp in Qatar, the playmaker said: ‘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 Manchester United are a good sign, but it is not important now. I’ve said I will stay at Ajax and I will do so, 100 percent.’
