A remarkable point of Van de Beek, a player about to join MU, is often scoring decisive in big matches.
MU is very close to the first rookie this summer. According to the Daily Star revealed, the chief negotiator of the “Red Devils”, Matt Judge, went to the Netherlands to negotiate and reach a personal agreement with Donny Van De Beek. In addition, Judge also found a common voice with Ajax, the player’s club.
The source revealed that Ajax agreed to the £ 40 million price offered by MU. The Dutch midfielder will sign a 5-year contract with an automatic 12-month extension. The salary of this player at Old Trafford has not been disclosed.
MU’s advantage in this deal is Ajax’s CEO, Edwin Van Der Sar is the old man of the club. In addition, many sources revealed that Real Madrid had reached an agreement to recruit Van De Beek for £ 55 million but canceled the contract due to the influence of the Covid-19 translation.
According to the Whoscored website, Donny Van de Beek is a type of player who likes to play short ball, has the ability to penetrate the penalty area well and release high-risk decisive passes. This gameplay has a similarity with Bruno Fernandes, the soul of the MU midfield at the moment.
Another notable point about Van De Beek is that this player regularly scores in important matches in the Champions League. In the 2018/19 season, the Dutch midfielder scored 4 goals in the European Cup and 3 of them are very important.
The first was the opening phase in the second minute against Dynamo Kiev in the preliminary round. This goal helped Ajax to create an advantage early and easily won 3-1. Next was a 1-1 equalization when he had to be a guest of Juventus in the quarterfinals. This is the premise to create a comeback of Ajax that makes Ronaldo and his teammates take the bitter fruit.
The final goal in the Champions League 2018/19 was the goal against Tottenham in the semi-final first leg. It was the only goal in the game and if Ajax held this advantage in the second leg, they would have made it to the final.
In the 2019/20 Champions League, Donny Van De Beek continued to prove “he is a player of big games” when scoring against two famous teams Chelsea and Valencia. Hopefully, the Dutch midfielder will continue to keep his scoring style in these important matches when he joins MU, because “Red Devils” will have many big matches this season.
