According to Spanish media, Donny van de Beek has a lot of options on the table as the young midfielder looks to leave Ajax this summer.

A little less publicized than the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt, Donny van de Beek is also a really common name in the transfer market this summer.

Following some really exceptional displays in the Champions League with Ajax last season, the enterprising midfielder has also been linked with a move away from the club.

Ajax are likely to end up without most of the main architects of their unforgettable journey in the Champions League. Frenkie de Jong has already signed for Barcelona while it is clear that Matthijs de Ligt would be making an insane amount of money in either Italy or France.

The leaders of the Dutch giants are also struggling to hold on to the likes of David Neres and Hakim Ziyech. However, it appears that Donny van de Beek would be leaving the club before the Brazilian and the Moroccan star.

Van de Beek is reportedly attracting a lot of interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona. Madrid are keen on signing the Dutch midfielder since he represents a cheaper and younger alternative to Paul Pogba or Christian Eriksen. According to AS, Madrid have already table an offer for the 22 year old.

Reportedly Donny van de Beek found out about Madrid’s interest when he bumped into Wesley Sneijder during his vacation. However, the youngster has doubts over the move because of fear of lack of game time.

The other teams that are interested in him, are willing to give van de Beek sufficient game time.

According to reports, a fee in the region of 50 to 60 million euros would be enough to convince Ajax into letting go of another big player.
