Manchester United have made an ‘important offer’ to Donny van de Beek to become a Red Devil despite Real Madrid appearing to win the race for the midfielder, according to reports in Spain.

Real have been linked with the Ajax star for the last year and were thought to have a verbal agreement with the Dutch side.

But Spanish outlet Marca claim things have now changed as Van de Beek weighs up offers from other suitors.

United is one of the interested parties and is said to have made an offer to the Netherlands international, as they club ‘do their best’ to sign the sought after 22-year-old.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to sign Van de Beek in January and the Dutchman is high on the United’s wishlist, alongside Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez.

United might be dragged into a bidding war, but Solskjaer has made the addition for an elite midfielder his priority in the next transfer window.

The Manchester club’s bid to sign Van de Beek might depend on the future of Paul Pogba.

Zinedine Zidane wants to bring the Frenchman to Real and would presumably halt efforts to land Van de Beek if United sanctioned Pogba’s move to Spain.
