Van de Beek edges closer to Madrid

Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek is edging closer to a move to Real Madrid, according to reports.

Van de Beek has confirmed that Los Blancos are interested in signing him and Spanish daily sports newspaper Marca reports Madrid have agreed a deal with the Ajax man, with an agreement with the Dutch club the only thing missing.

The 22-year-old was a key part of the title-winning Ajax that knocked out Real Madrid and Juventus en route to last season's Champions League semi-finals.

A fee of between €60-70 million is expected to land the Dutch ace, with Ajax cashing in on last season's success.

Zinedine Zidane is desperate to bolster his midfield options and had been keen to land Manchester United man Paul Pogba, while Christian Eriksen has also been linked with a move to the Bernabéu.

But Van de Beek now looks the most likely option for Madrid with the transfer deadline in England closing next week.
