Manchester United have reportedly made contact over a possible deal for Ajax star Donny van de Beek. The midfielder is valued at £49million by the Dutch giants having impressed for the club in recent years.
However, the Netherlands international is supposedly waiting on Barcelona, biding his time to discover what will happen with the future of Lionel Messi.
According to Catalan newspaper Sport
, the Red Devils have made contact over a possible deal for Van de Beek, as well as Premier League rivals Tottenham. It’s claimed that Van de Beek would prefer a move to Barcelona - but is waiting to discover the outcome of Messi’s future before making any potential move to the Nou Camp.
Messi wants to leave Barcelona at the current moment in time having grown frustrated with their decisions in recent years.
With Van de Beek, it’s claimed that Real Madrid actually struck an agreement with the 23-year-old last summer over a move to the Bernabeu. But, with Real failing to step up and complete the deal, the Dutchman could end up moving to United or Barcelona instead.
