TMW: Real Madrid close to Van de Beek amid Man United interest

Real Madrid are close to signing Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The Spanish side have long been expected to sign the 23-year-old after courting him for a year.

However, when news broke on Saturday that Manchester United had entered the mix, the midfielder’s future was suddenly less clear.

Reports said United were ready to pounce on Madrid’s dithering by trying to strike a deal for Van de Beek.

However, TMW claims that Madrid have gone ‘full speed ahead’, perhaps motivated by United’s interest.

Negotiations are ‘near to a conclusion’ with Van de Beek close to joining Los Blancos on a five-year deal.

De Beek is expected to cost between €40m and €50m when he leaves Ajax this summer.
