Netherlands international Donny Van de Beek has completed a medical ahead of his £40 move to Manchester United.
According to Sky Sports, the 23 year old box to box midfielder Ajax midfielder has his medical in his country as the Dutch side prepares for Nations League matches.
With personal terms already agreed, the player will travel to England after their last match against Italy to be officially unveiled.
The midfielder was central to the team’s meteoric rise in the 2018-2019 Champions League where they were knocked out in the semi-finals.
Sky Sports report that Real Madrid was also scouting for the star player’s signature but the allure of being a key figure in Ole Gunner Solsksjaer’s took him to Old Trafford.
Speaking on the player’s move to Man United, Sky Sports James Cooper had this to say;
“The personal terms shouldn’t be an issue for Van de Beek – he wants to come and a medical could take
place on Thursday, before he plays for the Netherlands against Poland on Friday night.
“Manchester United have moved quickly on this – they wanted to bring in a midfielder to bolster their options and not just rely on Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes; it will likely be a rotational policy – three players for two positions.
“Getting Van de Beek in when other clubs have been busy will take some of the heat off Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward but Jadon Sancho remains their No 1 target this summer. I think it will go on and on, though; I don’t see Man United writing a 100m cheque so it will be a complex deal to do.
With the season opener only two weeks away, Manchester United were yet to a sign a player even as the Old Trafford outfit seek to bolster their squad.
And with the deal to bring Jodon Sancho to Old Trafford losing steam by the day, the arrival of Van de Beek before the beginning of the season will be a plus for United’s Ed Woodward who has come under fire for his lack of activities in the transfer market.
