Manchester United are close to securing a deal to sign Donny van de Beek from Ajax, according to reports.

The midfielder has starred for the Eredivisie giants since breaking into their first-team in 2015, scoring 41 times in 75 appearances.

However, journalist Mike Verweij has reported on Twitter that the 23-year-old is close to ending his 12-year association with the Amsterdam side.

It’s claimed that Manchester United have agreed a £40.13 million deal with Ajax for Van De Beek’s signature.

Van de Beek has played 10 times for the Netherlands.

The Netherlands international, who has also been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid, is expected to sign a five-year deal at Old Trafford.

If the transfer is confirmed then the Netherlands international will become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first summer signing.

After guiding United to a third-placed finish, Europa League, League Cup and FA Cup semi-finals in his first full season in charge, Solskjaer will be hoping to improve on that in the upcoming 2020/21 campaign.
