Last season when Ajax had a dream run in the Champions League, beating the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus, all of their young talents became the taking point of the football clubs. They were linked to the top European clubs.
Frenkie de Jong went to Barcelona, Matthijs de Ligt signed for Juventus and Hakim Ziyech signed a deal with Chelsea recently which will see him join the Blues in the summer.
Real Madrid have been following Donny Van de Beek from the last season. They wanted to strengthen the midfield, as a result they wanted to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
But it seems unlikely that Real Madrid could sign Pogba. The more realistic option is to sign Van de Beek. So now they have again strengthened their interest in the Netherlands international.
Van de Beek has scored 10 goals in 37 games for Ajax this season. All the major football leagues in the world have been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the transfer speculations have started coming back again to the surface.
Van de Beek told Helden discussing his Real Madrid links: “My feelings about a club have to be positive. I don’t mean that it only important to feel wanted, I also need to fit in to the style of play. And of course, I would need to know how much playing time I would be given.”
He further added: “It’s always nice to play in the sun, but I haven’t started taking Spanish classes yet.”
Maybe Van de Beek would get his dream transfer in this summer. If Real Madrid fail to get any silverware for the second straight season, they would then go all out on strengthening their squad.
