United given transfer boost as Donny van de Beek plays down Real Madrid links
- The Dutchman is viewed as a replacement for Paul Pogba.
- The 22-year-old insists he's not set for the Bernabeu switch in the summer.
“It makes no sense I can’t control what people say,” he said as quoted by the Mirror. “I think it is premature. I have often said: I will not hurry; I am fine here.”
"If it happens, it happens," the 22-year-old added on a potential switch to the Santiago Bernabeu in the future.
The Netherlands international emerged on Man United's radar as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba earlier this season (ESPN). The Frenchman is said to be keen on an Old Trafford exit in the summer with Madrid and Juventus keen on his services.
Van de Beek, who has scored 10 and set up eight goals in 30 appearances this season, is expected to leave Ajax at the end of the 2019/20 season with the Premier League as his priority destination (Sky Sports).
Donny's contract at Ajax runs out in 2022. He is valued at around £50 million.
