Manchester United monitoring as Donny van de Beek is left out of Ajax squad
Donny van de Beek was left out of Ajax’s squad for the Dutch champions’ friendly with Eintracht Frankfurt, with a transfer potentially imminent.
Reports in the Netherlands suggest Van de Beek is nearing a move away from Ajax, with Manchester United, who have scouted him extensively, one of several interested parties, and that is why he did not take part in the warm-up match.

- Why is Donny van de Beek in demand?
In May, Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar confirmed the midfielder will be allowed to leave, but only for a suitable fee.
Van de Beek was close to joining Real Madrid prior to the coronavirus pandemic but he did not complete a medical or sign an agreement with the club.
It is understood Van de Beek will consider a move to the Premier League, as Sky Sports News reported in January, but Ajax have yet to receive any formal offers from any club this summer.
United are one of several clubs monitoring the situation, with Van de Beek one potential option should they decide to bolster the ranks in midfield. Jadon Sancho, however, remains their number one target.
