Donny van de Beek to snub Tottenham in favour of Real Madrid
Netherlands international Donny van de Beek prefers a move to Real Madrid over Tottenham, according to De Telegraaf (h/t Express).
The 22-year-old has been in great form since the last season and helped them reach the Champions League semis.
Van de Beek has been in good touch this season too. The midfielder has 11 goals and five assists in all competitions for Ajax.
Spurs could have done with a quality midfielder joining, especially with Christian Eriksen on the final year of his contract.
However, Van de Beek’s representatives have hinted that the Dutchman wants a move to Real over Spurs (h/t Express).
The La Liga giants are set to offer €55m in hopes of landing him (h/t Express). Ajax have seen several talents leave after the previous campaign, and it will be interesting to see what happens with Van de Beek.
