Real Madrid reportedly identify Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek as a potential alternative to Manchester United's Paul Pogba.

Real Madrid have reportedly identified Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek as a potential summer signing.

Head coach Zinedine Zidane is expected to be handed a huge budget for the next transfer window, and it has been suggested that the Frenchman is keen to sign compatriot Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

However, according to Marca, Zidane has been pressed into considering alternatives due to Pogba's price-tag and wage demands.

The report claims that Van de Beek is now an option for the Spanish giants, who have been left impressed by the performances of the 22-year-old in the Champions League.

The Dutchman has contributed three goals and two assists to help Ajax move to the brink of a surprise place in the final of European football's premier competition.

Van de Beek - who still has over three years remaining on his contract - could cost in the region of £60m.
