Real Madrid, Ajax disagree over Paul Pogba’s transfer alternative Donny van Beek

Reports in Spain claim Real Madrid and Ajax are at loggerheads over the valuation of midfielder Donny van de Beek.

The 22-year-old Dutch international netted 17 goals last season, including the only goal in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Tottenham.

According to Marca, the Dutch champions value the midfielder at €65m but Madrid do not want to pay in excess of €50m to secure his signature.

The midfielder is viewed as a cheaper alternative to Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who could cost a minimum of €150m, report Football Espana.

Van de Beek’s teammate Frenkie de Jong has already agreed an €86m switch to Barcelona this summer while defender and club captain Matthijs de Ligt has also been linked with a big money move.

The central midfielder has spent the entirety of his professional career at the Amsterdam-based giants and has won international recognition for the Netherlands.
