Manchester United have completed the signing of Donny Van de Beek for £35 million plus £4 million in add-ons.
The 23-year-old Ajax midfielder has joined the Red Devils on a five-year deal with the option to extend for another season.
The Netherlands international midfielder will wear jersey number 34 at Old Trafford as a tribute to former Ajax team-mate Abdelhak Nouri, who was in a coma for at least two years after suffering a cardiac arrest during a match in 2017.
In an interview according to Goal.com, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer commented: “Donny has all of the technical attributes needed to perform in this team and has the personality required to succeed at Manchester United.
His ability to see space, time his movements and read the game will really complement the qualities that we have in midfield and his arrival really strengthens the depth of talent we have in that position.
Donny’s performances in the Eredivisie and in Europe have been excellent over the last few years and we are all looking forward to working with him.”
