Donny van de Beek Rules Out January Move to Manchester United

Manchester United are still waiting on their
first addition this January transfer window. Not their first statement signing, but just
any new player. Having pulled out on Erling Haaland, United’s
next top target this January was rumored to be Ajax’s Donny van de Beek. The attacking midfielder with a valuation
of about £50 million, and a profile of what United are looking for at the position had
been linked with the club, but it’s not going to happen. “It is not that I can or want to do something
at the moment,” Van de Beek told FOX Sports Netherlands. “I have said it before and I will say it
again: I will remain at Ajax this season. And maybe next season as well.” The “maybe” uttered by the 22-year-old
in his response means that a summer move could still happen of course. The Netherlands international also said that
he was flattered by the interest from big clubs. Real Madrid have also reportedly been pursuing
the key member of last year’s semi-finalists. “These reports about Real Madrid or Man
United are a good sign, but it is not important now. I’ve said I will stay at Ajax and I will
do so for 100%,” he continued. Van de beek was also asked if could he see
both positives and negatives in a potential move to United. “Yeah, you’re right,” he answered. “You can look at it like that. It is not something that is in my mind right
now, but what you say is true.”
