Manchester United newcomer Donny van de Beek has revealed that Steven Bergwijn asked him to reject a move to the Red Devils and join Tottenham instead.
Van de Beek join United during this transfer window from Ajax on a five-year deal. Before joining the Red Devils, the midfielder had attracted strong interest from several other clubs including Real Madrid and Barcelona as well as Tottenham.
“I have to say that he [Bergwijn] just sent me a message: “Are you coming to us or not?” said Van de Beek.
“We often have contact. We used to play together at Ajax for a long time and have actually always kept in touch.
“I think we will see each other again soon. But I chose to join United. It’s a fantastic step, and I think now is the right time.”
