Twitter reacts as Manchester Untied sign Donny dan de Beek
The 23-year-old has signed a five year deal and becomes the club’s first major signing of the summer.
Van de Beek came through the ranks of the famed Ajax youth system. He eventually made his senior debut in 2015 and played a key role as Dutch giants reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2019. He also featured in the 2017 Europa League final against United.
The midfielder was in fine form last season. He contributed 10 goals and 11 assists in 37 games last season before the Eredivisie was cut short.
Van de Beek expressed his happiness at joining one of the biggest teams in football.
“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.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer too believed Van de Beek has all the qualities necessary to be a hit at United. The prospect of seeing the Dutchman partner Paul pogba and Bruno fernandes is something we can hardly wait to witness.
A number of United fans took to Twitter to react to the news. We look at a few of them below.
