Donny van de Beek from Ajax has been announced as a priority for Real Madrid and Manchester United, butargues that Newcastle could also make an offer.
The prospective new owners of United are said to be big-name hires to mark their arrival at St James’ Park, with van de Beek among those targeted. The Magpies are suspected to be on the verge of a Saudi-led takeover that would make them one of the richest clubs in the world. Now Newcastle United is in the process of signing the Netherlands International, according to a fresh source.
Donny van de Beek was believed to be close to reaching terms with Madrid, but earlier this month the player’s agent revealed that the coronavirus pandemic had left his future in doubt.
Following his outstanding results in Ajax’s run to the Champions League semi-finals last year, the Dutchman scored eight goals and five assists this term in the Eredivise.
