AJAX star Donny van de Beek has received a “proposal” from Manchester United, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are on a mission to secure the 23-year-old’s signature ahead of Real Madrid.
According to Marca, the Red Devils have stepped up their pursuit by making a proposal to Van de Beek.
Real Madrid were believed to be plotting a £49million summer move for the Dutch midfielder.
But the latest reports state that Zinedine Zidane’s have decided against making any big money signings this summer.
This has opened the door for United – who are hoping to sign him for just £36million.
Ajax chief Edwin van der Sar has confirmed his former club’s interest in Van de Beek.
As reported by NOS, he said: “It’s clear that clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United are showing interest in Donny van de Beek.”
The midfielder still has two years left to run on his current deal with the Eredivisie side.
He has been linked to some of the biggest clubs in Europe after scoring 41 goals in 175 first-team games.
Van de Beek has been with Ajax since he joined their youth academy in 2008 and they are keen to keep hold of him.
