He is a product of Ajax academy and made his senior debut for the first time in 2015 – giving him an European experience to help United in their Champions League campaign next season.

The midfielder was part of the Erik ten Hag’s team that reached the last four stage of UEFA’s elite competition in 2019. He featured in the 2017 Europa League final against United.

Van de Beek scored 10 goals and 11 assists in 37 games across competitions last season before the Eredivisie was curtailed.

“I would like to thank everyone at Ajax. I grew up there and I will always have a special bond with the club.

 

The 23-year-old becomes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing this transfer window, and the Norwegian tactician is hoping to seal a deal for Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara.
