According to La Marca, Real Madrid are interested in signing Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
The 22-year-old Dutchman is enjoying a standout season with Ajax, culminating in the game-winning goal against Tottenham in the first leg of Champions League semifinals.
While van de Beek may not have been one of Zidane’s initial targets, the Spanish daily Marca reports that the starlet's ”goalscoring exploits are catching the eye of Real Madrid.” In other words, the Netherlands international is a solid plan B if the preferred acquisition Paul Pogba fails to fall through.
Van de Beek's bidding starts at around 60 million euros — Barcelona paid €75 million for center midfielder Frenkie de Jong. But Los Blancos aren't the only team interested in signing van de Beek. Barcelona, Tottenham, Paris Saint-German and Arsenal are potential bidders as well.
