Netherlands midfielder Donny van de Beek has completed a medical ahead of his £40million transfer to Manchester United.
According to SunSport, the former Ajax midfielder underwent tests in Holland and there were no issues.
Van de Beek is set to be denied his favorite shirt number when he joins the Old Trafford club, with Paul Pogba already wearing the No 6.
Van de Beek’s father hails the move
Donny van de Beek’s father Andre hailed his son’s dream move to a big club Manchester United.
“This is a dream come true. It’s the perfect moment for him to make this step to such a beautiful club.”
“Many clubs were interested, but Donny decides himself,” he said.
Van de Beek tipped to make it
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Van de Beek is the right kind of signing in terms of profile.
Van de Beek previously told mates he wanted to join United, and they were the only Premier League side offering anywhere near the £40m mark.
After seeing what Bruno Fernandes has gone on to achieve, United chiefs will be hopeful their first signing of this window will prove just as effective.
Real Madrid were on the verge of landing van de Beek for around £49m last summer but the deal fell through.
And new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman knew him well from his time in charge of the national team.
Van de Beek was a shining light as Ajax made it all the way to the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2019.
However, they lost to Tottenham in heart-breaking fashion on away goals.
The box-to-box style player scored ten goals from midfield last term and is seen as the perfect foil for Paul Pogba and Fernandes by Solskjaer.
