Manchester United are ready to offer €55 million for Ajax’s attacking midfielder Donny Van de Beek, according to a report from Dutch newspaper De Koninklijke. Van de Beek was rumored to be on his way to Real Madrid last summer but Los Blancos ended up deciding to wait one more season to complete his signing.

Van de Beek has had a somewhat disappointing season in the Champions League and also in the Europa League, so Madrid could ultimately drop their interest, even more so considering that Martin Odegaard seems to be ready to make his return to the Spanish capital.

Other midfielder like Fabian Ruiz have also been linked to Real Madrid in recent months, so Los Blancos might not be willing to compete with United’s potential offer.

All in all, a move from Madrid to sign Van de Beek wouldn’t make much sense after what happened this season, so don’t expect Los Blancos to show their interest this upcoming summer.
