Manchester United sign Donny van de Beek from Ajax on a five years deal


Manchester United have signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax on a five-year deal for a fee rising to £39m.

The midfielder moves to Old Trafford for a fee of €39m (£34.6m) – plus another €5m (£4.4m) in add-ons – and has signed a contract until June 2025 after completing a medical in the Netherlands on Monday.

The 23-year-old will travel to the UK after his country’s Nations League games against Poland (September 4) and Italy (September 7).

The completion of the deal before those fixtures means he will not need to self-isolate for 14 days.

Van de Beek said upon joining United:

“I cannot begin to explain how incredible an opportunity it is to join a club with such an amazing history. I would like to thank everyone at Ajax, I grew up there and I will always have a special bond with the club. I am now ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level and there is no higher standard than Manchester United.

“Everyone has told me how amazing the Old Trafford atmosphere is and I am looking forward to experiencing that, once it is safe for the fans to return.
