Ajax line up Van de Beek replacement
Negotiations have begun with Brugge over the signing of Hans Vanaken in the event that Van de Beek signs for Real Madrid as Pogba alternative.
Ajax have their eyes on a replacement for Donny Van de Beek should he sign for Real Madrid. The Dutch side are keeping tabs on Hans Vanaken, Brugge's central midfielder, should they lose their star midfielder before the window closes. Het Nieuwsblad report that negotiations are already underway.
The deal for Van de Beek, as AS have reported, is as good as done and Real Madrid are just waiting to see what happens with the Paul Pogba situation. Christian Eriksen's potential move to United is now off according to multiple reports in England which leaves the Pogba deal as complicated as ever.
In the event that Van de Beek does get the call from Madrd, Ajax want to have their bases covered. Vanaken will achieve that for a fraction of the cost of Van de Beek. They have their replacement but they are still hoping they can hold onto their Van de Beek, until August 14 at a minimum, the day after they play PAOK in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier.
