Ajax star midfielder Donny van de Beek has agreed to a four-year deal with Manchester United, and is set to join them for about £35.7m this summer.
Manchester United have not been very lucky this summer with regards to transfer targets due to the valuation of their top targets and the financial impact of the Covid-19 enforced break.
The Red Devils faithfuls have been waiting patiently for a new face to arrive at the Theater of dreams this summer, and their long wait is now set to be rewarded with a stellar addition to their midfield ranks.
Manchester United have fought off interests from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Tottenham for Donny van de Beek’s signature, and the young Dutchman looks poised to pledge allegiance to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man Utd.
With enough time left in the transfer window, Manchester United will be looking at more recruitments over the coming weeks.
