Man United boss Solskjaer considering January move for Ajax’s Donny van de Beek – ESPN

Ajax standout

Donny van de Beek is just one of many top stars to emerge from Ajax’s superb youth system.

The now 22-year-old has spent all of his senior career with the Dutch champions, racking up 164 appearances for their first-team.

In those 164 games, van de Beek has scored 39 and assisted 31. The Dutchman was also a pivotal member of the Ajax squad which reached the Champions League semi-finals last year.

But while the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong departed Ajax over the summer, van de Beek stuck around.

That wasn’t to say that the midfielder didn’t appear to have interest in his services over the summer, with Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid linked with van de Beek.

Van de Beek to Man United?

And with the January transfer window now open, van de Beek is once again being linked with a move away from Ajax.

According to ESPN, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering a January move for the Ajax standout, with the United boss said to be pushing Ed Woodward to secure reinforcements for his squad this month.

Solskjaer has also recently spoken about transfers.

Man United’s latest clash saw them comprehensively beaten 3-1 by Man City on Tuesday. United’s midfield vs City was an area that looked particularly weak.

After the tie, OGS would speak briefly about transfers, stating that he has the backing to do something:

“I’ve got the backing to do something, but if it isn’t the right thing we won’t do anything.”
