    Having coming through the Ajax academy, the midfielder has made 175 appearances for the Dutch club, scoring 41 goals.  

    The 23-year-old became one of the stars of the team in the 2019-2020 season and will hope to recreate such form at Old Trafford. 

    On arrival at United, Van de Beek will line-up alongside Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes to form a new midfield trio.
