Last summer Donny van de Beek was on the verge of leaving Ajax. The midfielder was one of Ajax's best players alongside Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt.

Whilst the Dutch side knew they'd have to sell some of their star players, they didn't want to let all of them go. De Jong joined Barça and de Ligt went to Juventus. 

De Beek was the next big name set to leave and Real Madrid were heavily rumoured to have secured the first option on the midfielder. However, Ajax and de Beek agreed to delay any move for 12 months - so now he's ready to go.

Ajax aren't in any rush to let de Beek leave as they know there's plenty of interest from around Europe in the midfielder. Barça's recently appointed manager, Ronald Koeman, has added his name to the list.

Koeman believes he could recreate his fine partnership with de Jong at Barça. Due to the widespread interest, Ajax won't budge from their €50m asking price. Van de Beek is willing to wait for Barça to make their move as he knows Lionel Messi's situation needs to be resolved first.

It's a similar situation for Sergiño Dest, Ajax are ready to cash in on the youngster but won't let him go on the cheap. Dest's price is said to be around the €25m mark and Juventus are keeping tabs on his development.
