"Donny has all of the technical attributes needed to perform in this team and has the personality required to succeed at Manchester United", United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

"Donny will be brought in as a major purchase from Manchester United, but he will discover that those other 22 players have also been brought in as a "major purchase".

The 23-year-old has attracted interest from a number of top European clubs with Manchester United among those to have scouted the Dutch worldwide extensively over the past few years.

In a statement posted on Twitter, van der Sar - who played at United for six years in a hugely successful spell - heaped praise on van der Beek and promised fans they would get an "amazing" player who embodies the club's pride.

On Wednesday, United announced they had completed the signing of Van de Beek from Ajax on a five-year-deal.

"I would like to thank everyone at Ajax".

'I am now ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level and there is no higher standard than Manchester United.

The Dutchman arrives from Ajax to compete for a spot in midfield.

"Donny van de Beek is 23 years old and that is a nice age to make a transfer to the Premier League", Van Persie wrote in his column for De Telegraaf, as quoted by Metro.

After worldwide duty with Holland this week, Van de Beek is available to make his debut in United's season opener against Crystal Palace on September 19.

The 31-year-old was on the verge of leaving for Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last year before the deal fell through and he barely featured for Real in their run to the La Liga title when the campaign resumed after the COVID-19 stoppage.

"This is a great transfer for Donny, one which he deserves", he said.

Manchester United will start the new Premier League campaign with a clash against Crystal Palace on Saturday 19 September.

'It's also a compliment to Ajax's youth academy, where he has played since he was 11.

We might not find out what Solskjaer's first-choice XI is for a little while - and if Sancho does come that will be another "problem" for him.

The 23-year-old has scored 41 times in 175 games in all competitions over the past five seasons at the Dutch side after the home grown talent broke into the first team.

"Last summer there was a lot of interest in him but, luckily, we were able to keep him at Ajax for one more year".
