Manchester United are on the brink of signing Donny van de Beek from Ajax.
United fans have been taken aback by how slow the transfer activity has been at Old Trafford this summer, but proceedings could hardly have moved any faster in their approach of Van de Beek.
Ajax are believed to have accepted United’s initial bid without any negotiations and the Dutchman is an open admirer of the club, so personal terms were a similarly straightforward conversation.
Van de Beek on the brink of signing
Van de Beek was absent from training with the Dutch national team on Monday as he completed his United medical, essentially wrapping up the £40 million deal in the process.
As a result, supporters are simply waiting for the club to confirm that his signature has dried on the contract because even some of Van de Beek’s teammates are treating it as a done deal.
During the Netherlands press conference, Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk reacted by saying: “If it happens – and it looks like it – then I give him that wholeheartedly.
“Great for him, great for Dutch football, for the Dutch national team and another great club for an Oranje player. The same goes for Nathan Aké who has gone to Manchester City.”
