Manchester United secured the signing of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
The new contract will see the 23-year-old at Old Trafford until 2026 as the Dutch international signed a five-year contract with the option to add another year.
Leaving Ajax boyhood club Van de Beek enters a contract worth up to £40 m, after scoring 41 goals and creating another 34 in 175 games.
“I cannot begin to explain how incredible an opportunity it is to join a club with such an amazing history. I would like to thank everyone at Ajax. I grew up there and I will always have a special bond with the club,” Van de Beek told United’s official website.
“I am now ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level and there is no higher standard than Manchester United. Everyone has told me how amazing the Old Trafford atmosphere is and I am looking forward to experiencing that, once it is safe for the fans to return.”
“This team has some of the best midfielders in the world and I know that I can learn from them and also bring my own strengths to the group. Having spoken to the manager about his vision for this team, the direction that the club is going in is hugely exciting and I cannot wait to be a part of that.”
