Donny van de Beek reveals why he may not join Manchester United this summer

Manchester United target Donny van de Beek admits he might have made a move away from Ajax if not for the effect of the coronavirus pandemic. He also admitted he is willing to stay with the Dutch side next season.

Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar confirmed United and Madrid’s interest in the midfielder in June, while boss Erik ten Haag also admitted the club have an agreement with Van de Beek to allow him to leave.

Despite being tipped for a big move away, Van de Beek – who is a product of Ajax’s famed academy remains relaxed about his future and is enjoying his time at the club.

“It is very messy, in any case a very messy period in terms of transfers,” the Netherlands international told Fox Sports.

“Nothing is certain yet. I am still a player of Ajax and I am still proud to be there.

“If there had not been the coronavirus, it might have been different now. There is no clarity now and we have to wait and see how it turns out.

“I’m still here and after all these years I still have a lot of fun. If I also play at Ajax next season, I still have a lot of fun. You won’t hear me complaining.”
