MU is planning to recruit Donny Van de Beek, the player is said to have reached an agreement to move to Real Madrid with a £ 49 million contract. And according to Executive Vice President Ed Woodward, MU only spent about 36 million pounds
This agreement took place before the Covid-19 epidemic. For now, due to the financial impact, Real Madrid seems hesitant to recruit Van de Beek. Taking advantage of that opportunity, MU is planning to bring the 23-year-old midfielder to Old Trafford. This is the player they pursued last summer, but failed. The good relationship between Executive Vice President Ed Woodward and sporting director Edwin van der Sar could make this deal more likely to happen. For his part, Van de Beek was quite excited about the opportunity to play in the English Premier League.
Van de Beek grew up from the Ajax youth team and scored 38 goals in the last 3 seasons. In the 2018-19 season, he joined Frenkie De Jong, Matthijs De Ligt and Hakim Ziyech to help Ajax play well in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Those three names have all left Ajax, and Van de Beek is expected to follow in his footsteps.
Despite extending Odion Ighalo’s loan until January 2021, MU has not given up the intention of recruiting a new striker. And according to the Mirror, they will probably recruit Raul Jimenez – Wolves’ main striker this summer.
This season, Raul Jimenez continues to show impressive form with 22 goals and 10 assists after 44 games. He is a striker model (1m90), rich in strength, and is considered the ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Inter Milan. Currently, Real Madrid is also interested in a 29-year-old Mexican striker. He also has a 3-year contract with Wolves.
Last April, Wolves bought Raul Jimenez from Benfica for £ 30 million – a record in club history. Perhaps, they would demand double the number, if Jimenez were to leave
