Donny van de Beek of Manchester United has been given a January transfer lifeline, but it won’t be easy.

Donny van de Beek has been used sporadically at Manchester United, meaning he could be sold in January’s transfer window.

Donny van de Beek’s Manchester United nightmare might well be coming to an end if reports are to be believed – with Italian side Juventus supposedly ready to make a move for the Dutchman.

Van de Beek, 24, joined United in the summer of 2020 for a fee of £40million from Ajax after some stellar displays in the Dutch capital.

Having been part of a golden generation including Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech, big things were expected of Van de Beek.

His United career even got off to a dream start with a goal on his debut against Crystal Palace.

But having been left out of the first-team squad on more than one occasion, Van de Beek must be wondering where it all went wrong for him.

If other midfielders ahead of him were producing world-class performances, the Dutchman would have been more inclined to bide his time.

But with Fred and Nemanja Matic not winning the hearts of the United faithful, Van de Beek is rightly angered by the situation – which resulted in him throwing chewing gum at United staff in their 2-1 win over Villarreal in late September.

Everton have been credited with an interest in the midfielder, and they reportedly agree loan terms with Van de Beek in August – but United blocked a move.

However, a move to another Champions League side may just be in the offing for the former Ajax player – with Juventus reportedly interested.

“Juventus are ready to move for Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek in January. Any move depends on outgoings,” a tweet by Get Italian Football News read.

It would represent a great move to the midfield maestro to reboot his career and earn his way back into the Netherlands national side.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, claims that Van de Beek is still in his plans.

“He knows he is not frozen out,” Solskjaer said.

“It’s Man United and when a headline player is not playing for Man United, it is always going to make headlines.

“I’ve got plenty of them every week that don’t play, so I don’t have any issues with Donny; he knows what he needs to work on, what we want him to work. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
