Van de Beek hints at Ajax stay
Ajax star Donny van de Beek says he's aware of interest from Real Madrid but claims he would be happy to stay with the Dutch champions this summer.
The 22-year-old impressed last season as he helped Ajax win the Eredivisie and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.
With Real looking set to miss out on Manchester United target Paul Pogba, Van de Beek has emerged as a suitable alternative to the Red Devils star.

However, the Ajax playmaker is adamant he is happy in Amsterdam and would have no issue staying with his current employers.
“They’re a fantastic club, but Ajax are too,” he said to Ziggo Sport when asked about a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I’ve nothing to complain about in that regard. There’s a very good chance I’ll continue playing here, but nothing is certain yet.”
