Loads of Manchester United fans are desperate to sign Donny van de Beek after a Dutch journalist named the Red Devils as a possible destination for the young midfielder.
Van de Beek “has his eyes set on the Premier League” according to Dutch football expert Marcel van der Kraan, who was speaking on TalkSPORT on Monday.
The 22 year-old is expected to be linked with various clubs throughout the summer just like the rest of that stunning Ajax side, which is packed with young talent just waiting to be plucked by Europe’s financial heavy-hitters.
And van der Kraan believes van de Beek could well end up at Old Trafford.
Could Harry Maguire be on his way to Old Trafford? Check out the video below to see why it would make so much sense…
“Van de Beek has his eyes set on the Premier League,” he told Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Monday.
“I think he’s a proper Premier League player – he’s got a big tank, he’s got the education from Ajax, he can play in more positions in midfield.
“I think he’s got his eyes set on a club like Man United or Tottenham Hotspur.
“I’ve been talking to his agent, and he said if that would materialise it would be something right up his street.”
Van de Beek earned his sixth and seventh Netherlands caps during the UEFA Nations League last week, impressing against England with his composure on the ball and energy in the middle third.
The youngster scored 16 times and added 12 assists in all competitions this season (Whoscored), and could bring the perfect balance to a midfield currently desperately lacking an all-action presence alongside Paul Pogba.
And United fans are praying van der Kraan’s prediction comes true, just have a look at the Twitter reactions down below…
Get him now!!!!!!!

It would honestly be my favorite signing out of everyone we have been linked to so far.

Van de Beek gets overlooked (understandably), but he is a smart, hardworking, versatile midfielder. Man United would do very well to sign him.

I want this boy for manutd, dude is silently a giant slayer. Very energetic, highly composed and a box to box player, but my darling @manutd won’t see players like this. They will be busy chasing after marquee signings

If a player of his class has seen United play and still wants to join then the club should get him…United still has credit though tiny if we don’t improve then that’s it for United’s reputation for a long time
