Ajax Amsterdam legend, Ronald De Boer, has implored Manchester United to snap up dutch midfield sensation, Donny Van Don Beek.
In an interview with FOX Sports, De Boer urged Man United to sign the Ajax star.
Real Madrid are strongly linked to Van Don Beek, with multiple sources claiming he has an agreement to move to the Spanish capital.
However, De Boer believes that the Laliga giant are relenting on their pursuit of the 23 year-old, and the Red Devils led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can take that as their cue to go all out for Don Beek.
“When you hear these clubs pass by, I know your heart will beat faster
On the one hand, I understand that Real Madrid are hesitating a bit.” De Boer revealed.
“Another club could think; ‘hey, an interesting player, maybe we can get him for a little less’. For example Manchester United.
He went further to insinuate that Donny can be the perfect man to replace Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
“Solskjaer has indicated that he wants to go in a new direction and wants players who are humble, their heart is with the club, a team player.
“I think he is tired of the Pogba’s running around. He wants players like Donny van de Beek.”
Before the Dutch Eredivisie season was cancelled due to Coronavirus pandemic, the 60 million euros rate midfielder scored eight goals and provided six assists in 23 league appearances for the Dutch champions.
