Van de Beek confirmed during the summer transfer window that Real Madrid made an official approach to Ajax to sign him. However, talks seemingly failed to progress as the midfielder remains in Amsterdam.

But the 22-year-old hasn’t let the transfer drama affect his performances on the pitch, with seven goals and six assists in his 18 appearances for Ajax this season.

Van de Beek is clearly thriving in his new role as Ajax’s main man. Furthermore, he’s also giving Real Madrid a timely reminder of what they’re missing out on as well.

So, we can probably expect the Van de Beek-Real Madrid transfer saga to continue next year.
