Breaking: Van der Wiel Deal Not Done…Yet

Several ordinarily reliable sources have picked up a report from Dutch magazine Voetbal International stating that Ajax Amsterdam has agreed to sell right back Gregory van der Wiel to FC Bayern for 17 million Euros.

But the report is seemingly refuted by the web portal for Rotterdam-based newspaper Algemeen Dagblad which directly quotes Ajax business manager Rik van den Boog as saying that Ajax have not yet received a bid from FC Bayern.

Update:Van der Wiel’s agent says Gregory “has his phone turned off” and is (understandably) focusing on the World Cup Final.

Update II: TZ’s version of the story is that it’s a done deal that both sides are denying because of the World Cup final. An unnamed source in the report indicates Van der Wiel will be presented in Munich on Tuesday.

Stay tuned to see where this one is going..
