Euro Paper Talk: Ajax star days from joining Real Madrid

Date published: Sunday 11th August 2019 2:01

Real Madrid are expected to sign an Ajax midfielder over the coming days, while a Man City star is being to move to Valencia, all in European press.



Dutch international Donny Van de Beek looks set to sign for Real Madrid in the coming days, according to reports.

The Ajax midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in recent weeks, after potential moves for Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen appear to have fallen through.

With the La Liga transfer window is open until September 2, Real Madrid are expected to do more business between now and then, despite the La Liga season kicking off on August 16.

The 22-year old confirmed that talks are continuing, with a conclusion close to being reached, as quoted on Football Espana.

“It is no secret that my future is being discussed with Ajax.

“Talks about a potential move are ongoing and hopefully we will reach a conclusion soon.

“However, for now I am focused on Ajax and I will play in the game with PAOK later this week.”

Ajax are said to be quoting Real Madrid in the region of €45m for the defensive midfielder, as they look to rebuild their squad following the summer departures of star trio Frenkie De Jong, Matthijs De Ligt and Lasse Schone.
