Manchester United target van de Beek completes medical ahead of £40m move

Manchester United target Donny van de Beek has completed a medical in the Netherlands ahead of his proposed £40m move from Ajax to the Premier League club.

The deal is believed to be in the region of €39m, plus another €5m in add-ons and it is expected to be completed in the next few days while the player is on international duty with the Netherlands.

The 23-year-old completed his medical while with the Netherlands squad ahead of their Nations League games against Poland (September 4) and Italy (September 7),  and will travel to the UK immediately after the Nations League games.

United have been watching van de Beek closely, with the player left out of Ajax’s squad for the Dutch champions’ friendly with Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday amid rumours of an imminent move away.


Van de Beek was part of the Ajax set up that reached the 2018-19 Champions League semi-finals, scoring four goals along the way and 40 in all competitions over the last three seasons.

Ajax chief executive  Edwin van der Sar, in May, confirmed the midfielder will be allowed to leave the club at the end of last season but only for the right fee.

Van de Beek was close to joining Spanish champions Real Madrid prior to the coronavirus pandemic, but the move did not materialise as he did not complete a medical or sign an agreement with the club.

Reports indicate that there was a preference for any deal involving him to be completed before Ajax kick off their new season in the Dutch Eredivisie against Sparta Rotterdam on 13 September.

The government has also confirmed that should van de Beek become a registered United player before either of his games for the Netherlands, he will not need to self-isolate for 14 days in the UK as he would be allowed to apply for an exemption on sporting grounds.

The same exemption currently applies for all Premier League and EFL players away on international duty from the UK, and for those who are competing in games abroad. Liverpool players and staff would be granted such exemption too due to their friendlies being played during their pre-season camp in Austria.

Netherlands is not currently in a travel corridor with the UK.
