Van de Beek’s 60M euro value suits Real Madrid C.F
Real Madrid are leading several European clubs in the chase to sign Ajax’s Donny Van de Beek this late spring.
The Dutchman is the alternative midfield option if Los Blancos neglect to arrive Paul Pogba.
Van de Beek has played a starring role in Ajax’s remarkable run to the Champions League semi-finals, scoring endlessly against both Juventus and Tottenham in the knockout stages.
PSG and Bayern Munich are also thought to be keeping an eye on him.
Van de Beek’s agent, Rob Witschge, is the same man who brought Wesley Sneijder to the Santiago Bernabeu from Ajax in 2007.
Madrid are taking a more measured approach to spending money this summer and they need Sergio Ramos to remain the most elevated worker at the club after the exchange window closes.
Therefore, Van de Beek’s 60M euro price tag and more modest wages represent a more attainable cost than what real Madrid would spend on Pogba.
Zinedine Zidane wants to bring the Frenchman in from Man United, but the club can’t coordinate his 17 million euro yearly pay.
Van de Beek has scored 16 goals in 53 games for Ajax this season and would be slanted for a greater move away on the off chance that it is done consciously.
