Ajax midfielder Van de Beek willing to wait for Barçelona offer

Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek is willing to wait for Barçelona to make their offer.

However, he knows a deal is very complicated right now.

Sport says Ajax refuse to budge from their asking price of €55m for the 23-year-old midfielder and Barça simply can't afford that. At least not until there have been a few more confirmed departures at the Camp Nou.

Right now, though, the main focus is on resolving Lionel Messi's current situation.

Ronald Koeman is a huge admirer of van de Beek and feels he could add a lot to his new project. Even before the Dutchman's appointment, Barça tried to sign the midfielder last summer.
