The Dutch De Telegraaf says the Ajax midfielder’s move to Real Madrid is a done deal as he is set to join Los Blancos on July 1, 2020. The publication claims that neither of the three parties involved – Madrid, Ajax and Van de Beek himself – are currently willing to share any further information, but will make an official statement at some point in the future.
News of Van de Beek’s move to Spain is not a complete novelty, as it was widely speculated last summer that the Dutchman would be leaving. However, at the time it was reported that Van de Beek wanted to stay one more season at Ajax, the club he joined at the age of nine.
De Telegraaf claims that Madrid are seriously interested in signing the 22-year-old and will pay the €55 million asking price. Tottenham Hotpur were reportedly also interested, but Van de Beek hinted that he would prefer a move to the royal club.
And it is no wonder several clubs are interested in Van de Beek, as has been quite productive playing for his team. This season only he has made 18 appearances out of 21 matches, scored seven goals and laid on six assists.
