Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are closing in on the signing of highly rated Dutch midfielder Donny Van Der Beek according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the Netherlands.
Ajax Amsterdam star Donny Van Der Beek is seen as the perfect replacement for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba whom Real Madrid are unable to pull off a move for this summer.
Real Madrid are unable to come up with the €180m transfer fee needed to sign French World Cup winner Pogba.
The Manchester United star will definitely stay at the club this summer after interested clubs like former club Juventus and Real Madrid failed to prise him away from the Theatre of Dreams.
Donny Van Der Beek is seen as a Plan B signing at Real Madrid in their quest to sign a new midfielder before the new season starts later this month.
Real Madrid will have to pay at least €60m to sign the young Dutch midfielder who was in superb form for Ajax Amsterdam last season.
He scored 17 goals and also provided 13 assists for Ajax Amsterdam in all competitions as the Dutch Eredivisie giants reached the Champions League semifinals and also won two trophies at the end of last season.
