Real Madrid are really considering a transfer move for Ajax starlet Van de Beek, and they are confident of landing the Dutch midfielder this summer.
Paul Pogba is still Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane prefered choice to strengthen his team midfield, but it seems the transfer of the French international player may not be possible this summer and Van de Beek had been an alternative choice.
It was understood that the transfer was accepted by all areas of the club excluding Zidane who prefered working with his fellow Frenchman Pogba.
Zidane views Paul Pogba as the missing piece in Madrid, but the Los Blancos does not believe Pogba is the solution to their problem.
Manchester United are expected to finalise the signing of Bruno Fernandes and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic imminently, which could see Paul Pogba join Madrid, but The Red Devil won’t lower their asking price.
At the moment, Madrid will have to sell Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez in order to balance the accounts before any new signings.
