Manchester United 'handed boost in Donny van de Beek pursuit'

Real Madrid have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.

The Spanish giants were allegedly set to battle Manchester United for the signature of the Netherlands international during this summer's transfer window.

However, according to De Telegraaf, Zinedine Zidane's side are no longer in the running for the 23-year-old and are currently looking at other potential signings in a midfield position.

Former United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar, who is Ajax's chief executive, recently revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team were interested in Van de Beek's services.

Meanwhile, Ajax youth coach Ronald de Boer has suggested that the Dutchman could be on his way to the 20-time English champions ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Van de Beek enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for Ajax, scoring 10 times and registering 11 assists in 37 appearances in all competitions.

Tottenham Hotspur 'confident of sealing £25m Kurt Zouma deal'

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly becoming increasingly confident of signing Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma in a £25m deal during this summer's transfer window.

The 25-year-old has made 36 appearances for the Blues during the 2019-20 campaign but his future at Stamford Bridge is currently being called into question.

A recent report claimed that Chelsea had offered Zouma to Paris Saint-Germain as they prepare to bring a new centre-back to the club ahead of the 2020-21 season.

However, according to The Express, Spurs are confident of signing the Frenchman in a £25m deal.

Everton are also believed to be interested in Zouma, who spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Goodison Park, but Jose Mourinho's side are allegedly in the driving seat.

The defender has started Chelsea's last two Premier League games against Watford and Crystal Palace, having previously been an unused substitute against Aston Villa, Manchester City and West Ham United.
