Van Der Sar opens up and tells Chelsea £60 million ‘will not come cheap’ this summer
Chelsea have been warned that Ajax star Donny Van De Beek will not come cheap this summer transfer window.
Beek made a massive impact in Europe last season when he helped Ajax regain the League title for a good few years, and also helped the Dutch giants reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, impressing everyone with their attacking football.
That led to speculation in the media suggesting that Beek would be the latest name to leave the club when the next transfer window opens up, with reports claiming that Madrid had already swooped in and agreed a fee with Ajax about a deal for Beek, which meant that we may miss out on another target.
However, no deal has been concluded yet and but we were boosted by the players agent after he came out and revealed that there is still an opportunity for a club like us to swoop in and seal a deal for the brilliant little Dutchman
We are looking for immediate replacements for the departing Pedro and Willian, there have been rumours that Lampards men may look to try and get another transfer bargain done.
However, former Old Trafford and Fulham keeper Edwin Van Der Sar is adamant that many clubs won’t be able to afford his players after coronavirus lockdown.
He told Reuters: “In January last year, people said we were going to lose seven or eight players but we lost only two key members.
“The big clubs such as Bayern Munich have said the benchmark fee will go down in the next few transfer windows. But it’s easier for them to say because they are the buyers.
“Of course, the 150 million-200 million euros transfers are gone, but I think there is still a lot of value for players who come from Ajax.
“Well educated, experienced in winning and playing European football.”
