Van de Beek's father labels Man Utd move 'dream come true'

Donny van de Beek's father has described his son's move from Ajax to Manchester United as a "dream come true".

The Netherlands midfielder has completed a medical with United ahead of a £40m deal, expected to be completed after the international break.

"This is a dream come true," Andre van de Beek told Omroep Gelderland. "Our local village is very proud.

"It's the perfect moment for him to make this step to such a beautiful club, but Ajax will always remain in our heart.

"A lot of clubs were interested, but Donny took this decision himself."
