Donny Van De Beek Described As A 'Panic Buy' For Manchester United

Donny Van De Beek Described As A 'Panic Buy' For Manchester United”

Donny Van De Beek gained European recognition two seasons ago as part of the youthful Ajax Amsterdam side that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Van de Beek arrives at Old Trafford having come through the ranks of boyhood club Ajax.

The Blancos' loss has been United's gain, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer moving to snap up a talented playmaker in a £35 million ($46m) transfer.

'You have to have someone who can play the holding role. That signing looked to me like: 'Oh we haven't bought anyone yet, let's go and buy someone, who can we get?' When you look at their midfield, Fred was improving, and they've got Scott McTominay.

Van de Beek has also been capped ten times by the Dutch national team over the past three years, but has failed to find the net.

"He came to this point. He told how big the club is and how nice an experience he had with it".

The same article states that the Red Devils haven't made an official bid to sign the 29-year-old but Manchester United have started the process of negotiations with the player.

Manchester United signed Van de Beek in a £40m deal from Ajax on Wednesday evening to secure their first summer signing.

Van Hooijdonk added on the qualities that Van de Beek will offer to United, with his time at Ajax seeing him deliver an impressive haul of 41 goals and 34 assists: "Physically, his body is strong enough to be a professional player - not many injuries during his career so far".

He said: "Under Solskjaer we have seen a lot of youngsters getting their chance in the team. For me they need another centre back".
