Manchester United interested in signing Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek

Ajax are bracing themselves for the sale of Donny van de Beek, with Erik ten Hag admitting there have been "some developments" around a midfielder who has been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona.

The Mirror say that Van de Beek has told Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar and sporting director Marc Overmars that he wants to leave and won't play for the Eredivisie giants again.

The player produced 10 goals and 11 assists in 37 games for Ajax last term after mustreing 17 goals and 13 assists in 57 games the season before, when his club reached the Champions League semi-finals only to be downed by Tottenham in the final four in dramatic style.

He was tipped to move to Real Madrid last summer, but the move fell through as the club promoted Federico Valverde from their Castilla side, who made an immediate impact.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has endured a frustrating summer so far as he's yet to sign any of his prime transfer targets with the Manchester club struggling to agree deals for the likes of Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.

Ajax have not budged from their asking price from a year ago which was set at €55 million despite the coronavirus pandemic negatively impacting the football market.

The 23-year-old has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Spurs and Man Utd in recent months, though according to the Mirror, the Old Trafford outfit have now taken the lead in the race to sign the Netherlands global.

Old Trafford and Camp Nou have been mooted as potential landing spots for the 23-year-old. But for them, it might be a question of quality more than quantity.

Van de Beek is a product of Ajax's famed academy system.
