Everton manager Marcel Brands explains why Manchester United’s transfer request was turned down twice.
Marcel Brands, Everton’s manager, has stated that Manchester United thwarted his transfer ambitions twice.
Everton’s sporting director Marcel Brands said that Manchester United turned down two proposals for unhappy player Donny van de Beek. The Old Trafford club paid £34 million for the Dutchman in 2020, but he has disappointed under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
During his first season, Van De Beek only made four Premier League appearances, half of which came in the last month.
This season, the 24-year-old has only made three appearances.
His United future is uncertain, and there were indications earlier this summer that he was considering leaving the club.
A deal fell through, and it has now been discovered that United sensationally blocked him a move.
Everton, United’s Premier League opponent, attempted to sign Van De Beek twice. At the opening of the summer transfer window, an inquiry was initiated.
As the transfer deadline approached, Brands discovered that the Netherlands international might be available on loan. Everton’s attempts to work out a deal were, however, once again rebuffed.
“He was on our list.” We inquired at United at the start of the transfer window, but it was impossible,” Brands told NOS.
“At the end of the window, his agent, Guido Albers, called to say he might be rented out after all.”
“However, it was canceled at the last minute.” “I came to a halt once more.” Last week, Van De Beek expressed his dissatisfaction with his lack of playing time in public. During the 2-1 Champions League victory over Villarreal, the midfielder was obviously enraged at not being used from the replacements’ bench.
Solskjaer has downplayed the annoyance, insisting that he understands Van De Beek’s dissatisfaction.
The former Ajax player’s United deal is set to expire in just over four years.
It’s unclear whether he’ll be allowed to leave or if Solskjaer will eventually give him more playing time.
“I coach a team of international footballers, competitive footballers who want to make an impact and perform.” “Of course they all want to be on the pitch,” Solskjaer stated.
