Manchester United is looking for players to add to their squad. Grealish is too costly but there are other alternatives.
Manchester United have ended the Premier League successfully. The club has been able to regain their Champions League spot. Although it’s nothing to boast about and is just the start of a tougher journey to come.
However, if there is something that is evident from this season’s display, it’s that United needs a few more pieces. United are in great shape but they still need to have competition for places in the team. 2 good signings might help the club step it up to another level.
Fans will be hoping that one of them would be Jadon Sancho. The club has had links with the player for quite some time now. Dortmund will not make it easy but United might just be able to barter a deal.
Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish was also one of the targets. Dean Smith gave the following statement on the player. “We’ve got billionaire owners and he’d cost a lot, a lot of money.” The club has no intention to sell unless a big offer is made. And by a big offer, Aston Villa means £75 m+. But United aren’t willing to pay that much.
Considering the situation United has turned United will look at other alternatives. Ajax’s star Donny Van De Beek is one of the club’s long time targets. And it looks like the club will restart his pursuit. United are looking to add some creativity to their team and Van De Beek would be perfect.
The Reds are looking to add Van De Beek to their roster
Van De Beek has had another sensational with season with Ajax this year. United wanted to bring the player to Old Trafford last season too. But maybe they will have better luck this time.
Van De Beek has made 37 appearances for Ajax in all competitions. In which he has 10 goals and 17 assists to his name. The clubs in the Eredivisie were in favor of ending the season instead of restarting it. Van De Beek’s tally wouldn’t be the same if the league resumed.
But this rest might be good for him. He will look forward to a fresh start the next season. According to the Express, his next one might be with Manchester United. The club is looking to acquire his services and is willing to pay an amount of £49 million for the Dutchman.
Ajax and Van De Beek had an agreement last season. That the player stays with the club for another year and focuses on football. And the club will let him go in the next season if he desires so.
Edvin Van Der Saar also gave a statement on this. “It’s clear that clubs like Real Madrid and are Manchester United are showing interest in Donny van De Beek.”
Although Ajax might raise the price tag for Van De Beek. The club has made it clear that anyone who is interested will have to pay a hefty amount if they are interested in acquiring his services.
