Donny Van De Beek has supposedly told his goodbyes to his Ajax teammates and said that he will be joining Manchester United. The fee is reportedly set to be around €40 million.
With Manchester City, Chelsea, and Tottenham already being active in the transfer market, Manchester United seem to be ready to enter the fold.
With United constantly linked with Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund and with that transfer being a matter of when and not if, the Red Devils have moved on to other targets in the mean time.
One target is Donny Van De Beek, the 23-year-old midfielder from Ajax who has impressed in a plethora of midfield positions and looks to be on the radar of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Donny Van de Beek would love to join Premier League and he's waiting for an official bid after clubs have contacted his agents on last weeks. Ajax will let him leave if any club will match the price tag [around €40M]. :red_circle: #vandebeek #transfers #ajax

With reports speeding up rapidly after Van De Beek missed out on a friendly against Eintracht Frankfurt on August 30th, United seem to be in pole-position.
According to Spanish publication SPORT, Van De Beek has already said goodbye to his colleagues, and will become a United player next week.
United have also sped up their interest in Thiago Alcantara. Liverpool have been the favourites but their unwillingness to pay €30 million for the Spaniard has cleared the path for United to pay the fee and add him to their incredible midfield.
It says a lot that Donny van de Beek and Thiago Alcântara can be bought for €40m (£35.7m) and €30m (£26.8m) respectively - £62.5m - whilst Jack Grealish is being valued around £70m by himself.
