Guido Albers is not worried about Donny van de Beek’s future despite the possibility of a change in the transfer market due to the coronavirus crisis.

Real Madrid and Manchester United are among the few big names being linked with the signing of midfielder Donny van de Beek.

The Dutchman played a key role in Ajax’s incredible run up till the semi-finals of the Champions League last season and has been sparking up interest from several European giants since then.

Although nothing solid has come of it yet, Van de Beek has reportedly agreed personal terms with Real Madrid and will complete a €54 million transfer at the end of this season.

However, the lack of match revenues and TV incomes is believed to cause a huge disruption in the transfer market. This could mean clubs will be forced to reconsider their transfer plans.

And for the 22-year old, it could possibly see his potential move to Real Madrid or other suitors come off. But Guido Albers, his agent, assures Van de Beek’s future is not in jeopardy.

“I’m not worried about Donny. The interest has been, and that is also known, for a long time and from several clubs. We will see what will come out of that in the coming weeks,” Albers told Dutch football magazine Voetbal International

“I dare not say anything about it at the moment. I can’t say anything about it because a number of things are just confidential.

“The situation will have changed per club and we have to look closely at that.”
