Man Utd secure Van de Beek transfer from Ajax for a reported fee of £40million.

Midfielder Van de Beek has finally joined Manchester United from Dutch club Ajax, and the midfielder says he is 'ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level'.

The 23-year-old put pen to paper on a five-year deal on Wednesday with the option of an extra 12 months.

Midfielder Van de Beek was also wanted by the likes of Arsenal, Real Madrid, and Barcelona but nothing materialised.

Speaking after he was officially unveiled by the Red Devils, the 23-year-old said: "I cannot begin to explain how incredible an opportunity it is to join a club with such an amazing history. I would like to thank everyone at Ajax, I grew up there and I will always have a special bond with the club.

"I am now ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level and there is no higher standard than Manchester United.

“Everyone has told me how amazing the Old Trafford atmosphere is and I am looking forward to experiencing that, once it is safe for the fans to return.

"This team has some of the best midfielders in the world and I know that I can learn from them and also bring my own strengths to the group.

"Having spoken to the manager about his vision for this team, the direction that the club is going in is hugely exciting and I cannot wait to be a part of that.”
