Guido Albers acknowledges that the interest of “several clubs” has been “known for a long time” but refuses to describe the fate of the Ajax star as sealed.

Reports in Spain earlier in the season indicated that Real had made an agreement with 22-year-old van de Beek for a change of summer.
However, the player himself has since insisted that he did not “say” yes “to anyone”, thereby raising hopes for United and Tottenham.
And van de Beek’s agent said nothing is certain with the coronavirus pandemic creating a very different summer market.
Albers told Voetbal International: “The interest is – and it is also known – for a long time and from several clubs.
“We will see what will happen in the coming weeks. I don’t dare say anything about it yet I cannot say anything about this because a number of things are simply confidential.
“The situation will have changed for each club and we need to take a closer look. “
AJAX STAY IS ‘NO PENALTY’
Albers insists he “doesn’t expect any problems” with Ajax after Amsterdam club manage to keep the attacking midfielder while co-starlets Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt left at the end of last season.
He added, “For Donny, the most important thing, as he has always said, is a choice based on his feelings.
“What he thinks best suits him and which he thinks will be the most successful. He did it last year and will continue to do so this summer.
“Remember, Ajax is still the club he joined as a young player. It is not a punishment to play for Ajax. He will also take this into account. “
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke positively about his team’s ability to do business at the end of the 2019/20 campaign despite the financial crisis caused by the pandemic.
Meanwhile, Real are going ahead with £ 500m plans to renovate their Bernabeu home.
And Albers thinks the reshuffle could benefit some teams.
Van de Beek’s agent noted, “Everything will be different, but I also have to be realistic: it also creates opportunities for clubs who may have thought they were out of luck and are now knocking on the door.
“But I’m not worried about Donny. “
