Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has admitted Manchester United target Donny van de Beek, along with other top stars, could leave once the transfer window reopens.
The Red Devils are eyeing up a creative midfielder this summer and van de Beek is high on their shopping list – with Ajax chief Edwin van der Sar previously confirming United’s interest.
The ex-United keeper said: “It’s clear that clubs like Real Madrid and United are showing interest in Donny van de Beek.”
Van de Beek, who has another two years on his current contract, registered eight goals and six assists for the Dutch outfit in the Eredivisie last season.
And ten Hag has revealed that van de Beek, goalkeeper Andre Onana and Nicolas Tagliafico have all made agreements with the Amsterdam club that they can depart this summer.
“The transfer market will start in August – the top leagues are now being played out, so the money flows are maintained,” Ten Hag told Dutch outlet Het Parool.
‘”he market value of players will be slightly depressed, but not much. Based on their performance and ambition, a number of our players also want to make the move abroad.
“Agreements have been made with Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, but it remains to be seen whether the market is indeed breaking loose.
“For Onana and Van de Beek, another year of Ajax could certainly be an option, for Tagliafico it is slightly different because of his age.”
