Donny van de Beek’s agent is ‘working hard’ to get his client out of Old Trafford in January.
This season has been a nightmare for Donny van de Beek at Manchester United.
According to rumors, Donny van de Beek’s agent is attempting to find a way out of Manchester United ahead of the January transfer window. Since joining the Red Devils from Ajax last summer, the 24-year-old has struggled to make an impact and is expected to leave in the near future.
During his tenure with Ajax, Van de Beek established himself as one of Europe’s best playmakers, helping the Dutch giants reach the Champions League semi-finals in 2019.
In the process, he earned a big-money move to United, with the Red Devils paying about £35 million to sign him.
The midfielder was welcomed to Old Trafford with great enthusiasm, but he was unable to unseat Bruno Fernandes as the No. 10 and has been forced to adjust to a deep-lying role as a result.
Last season, he only started four Premier League games, while this season, he has only made three appearances across all competitions.
Last week, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enraged Van de Beek by leaving him on the bench as an unused substitute against Villarreal in the Champions League, with the Dutchman visibly angry.
According to Calciomercato, he appears to be willing to abandon United and resurrect his career elsewhere, with his agency ‘working hard’ to find a new club.
Van van Beek’s officials are said to have spent weeks studying the market in order to determine the best course of action to follow in January.
However, it is unclear whether United will cooperate with the player’s wish to go in order to reclaim some of the £35 million cost they paid to Ajax last year.
The Red Devils are said to be willing to sell for at least a percentage of his asking price, a task that may be tough to achieve at this time.
It’s unclear whether Van de Beek, who is under contract until 2025, will be able to complete his transfer away from United before the end of the year.
Everton were linked with his services during the summer transfer season, and a failed bid to bring him to Goodison Park on deadline day is said to have been made.
