Ajax midfielder Van de Beek tells Spurs his decision

Tottenham have failed with a move for Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.

De Telegraaf says Tottenham have been in talks with Ajax and the player's camp about a move to London in 2020.

However, it's been revealed Van de Beek made recent contact with Spurs to inform them he doesn't wish to move to London.

Instead, Van de Beek is counting on a move to Real Madrid, which are prepared to offer €55m to Ajax for the Holland international.

Real management are moving for the youngster in preference to Manchester United's €200m-rated midfielder Paul Pogba.
