Real and Tottenham fight for van de Beek

Real Madrid and London Tottenham got engaged into a battle for Ajax Amsterdam halfback Donny van de Beek.

Last season, Ajax once again showed Europe how they can bring up talents and then achieve considerable success without big investments. Although the path of Cruyff's heirs ended at the stage of the semi-finals of the Champions League, some players have already been taken like hotcakes. De Jong went to Barcelona, and De Ligt went to the company of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

One of the most coveted players for European giants was Donny van de Beek, but Ajax took a stand and refused to let more young people go in one transfer window. Now Real Madrid and Tottenham stand in line for van de Beek.

The Spurs understand that Christian Eriksen will slip away from them in the summer. The Dane was getting ready for Catalan Barcelona, but de Jong had gone there before. Therefore, Bayern were the next candidates for Eriksen, which needed a creative midfield along with Thiago.

According to De Telegraaf Tottenham made a transfer request, but the footballer refused the offer. Most likely this was the cause of the problematic management, as the president of the London club, Daniel Levy, hardly let his players go. Yes, and Jose Mourinho, who came to the coaching bridge with difficulty getting along with talented players, pickling them on the bench.

Real Madrid need a substitute for Isco. The Spaniard is extremely unstable and needs the full support of the coach. Given the game of Los Blancos now, Zidane can’t take such a risk, building a picture of the game for one football player. Therefore, Madrid are ready to pay 55 million euros for the 22-year-old Dutchman.

Donny van de Beek himself continues to drag Ajax to the heights. This season, he has played in twenty games, in which he scored seven times and three times made assists. Given the style of the football player, he clearly needs a transitional stage with a coach who will believe in him and will not be very strict in case of failure. Better than Real and Tottenham he would be a better fit for RB Leipzig with Julian Nagelsmann. The Bulls are confidently leading the Bundesliga this season, playing in the Champions League and are extremely ambitious, like their coach.
