Real Madrid have reportedly pulled out of the race to secure services of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
The Spanish heavyweights were allegedly set to battle Manchester United for the services of the Netherlands international during the upcoming summer transfer window.
However, according to De Telegraaf, Zinedine Zidane’s side are no longer in the running for Ajax playmaker and are currently looking at other potential signings in a midfield area.
Former United stopper Edwin van der Sar, who is Ajax’s chief executive, recently revealed that the 20-times English champions were interested in Van de Beek’s services.
Meanwhile, Ajax youth coach Ronald de Boer has suggested that the Dutchman could be on his way to the 20-time English champions ahead of the 2020-21 season.
The Dutch midfielder has enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 season for Ajax, founding back of the net 10 times and providing 11 assists in 37 games in all competitions.
Meanwhile, West Ham United are reportedly considering an approach for Man United pair Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones.
The two England internationals have struggled to make an impression under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this campaign and could allegedly be on their way to depart from the club this summer.
According to The Independent, David Moyes is keen to reunite with both Jessie Lingard and Phil Jones at West Ham, having worked with the duo during his brief stint as the Red Devils head coach.
