Real Madrid Reignite Interest On This Eredivisie Midfielder: What Will He Bring To The Spanish Capital?

According to a recent report by the Dutch news outlet De Telegraaf (via Four Four Two), Real Madrid are ready to give up their pursuit of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and have decided to turn their attention to AFC Ajax playmaker Donny van de Beek during this summer transfer period.

The same source has claimed that the Galacticos are pushing to get a deal done for the Dutch international who is valued at €60m by the Eredivisie champions in this off-season.

Donny van de Beek’s Remarkable Form For Ajax Last Season

The 22-year-old came through Ajax’s youth system and had the best season of his playing career in the 2018-19 campaign. The Eredivise sensation enjoyed a productive campaign for the Amsterdam outfit last season when he put in a series of match-winning performances to cap off an excellent title-winning season in the previous term.

Van de Beek made 57 appearances for the Dutch giants last season, registering 17 goals while providing 13 assists across all competitions. He has also represented the Netherlands in five international matches so far and has the potential to play a crucial role for his country in the years to come.

What Will The Dutch Prospect Bring To The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium?

Van de Beek primarily plays as an attacking midfielder for Ajax as he can make some penetrative runs in the opposition half. The Dutch rising star proved his worth last season when he broke into the double figures mark in both goal-scoring and assist-making. His stats show that Van de Beek is developing into a better player with each campaign. He can be a consistent goal-threat from midfield which makes him a perfect fit for Los Blancos ahead of the new season.

The acquisition of a creative player of Van de Beek’s ilk will undoubtedly improve Zinedine Zidane’s attacking options at the Spanish capital. At 22, he is about to embark upon the best years of his playing career which the Galacticos could look to benefit from over the next few campaigns.

Zidane has his work cut out for him and needs to act quickly if he wants to have a strong squad capable of challenging on all fronts in the upcoming campaign. Hence, it makes sense for the Real Madrid boss to splash the cash on Van de Beek this summer.
