Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the manager of Manchester United, has ‘blocked a late Donny van de Beek loan move’ to Everton.
Before the transfer deadline on Tuesday, Donny van de Beek was on the verge of leaving Manchester United on loan.
According to sources, Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek came close to joining Everton on loan before the transfer deadline on Tuesday evening, but the move was thwarted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Since joining the Red Devils last summer, the 24-year-old has battled for first-team minutes and has been linked with a move elsewhere.
Van van Beek made just 19 Premier League matches last season and is yet to make an appearance this season.
Solskjaer stated in January that the Dutchman was dissatisfied with his lack of playing time, but it appears that the United manager is hoping to keep his man for the time being.
According to Football Oranje, Everton were close to making a last-ditch loan bid for Van van Beek before Solskjaer intervened.
According to reports, Van de Beek wanted to leave United after only a year, but his manager was not willing to let him go with just hours till the crucial deadline.
Guido Albers, the player’s agent, talked to Dutch media on Tuesday to express his displeasure with United for blocking the transfer.
He told Voetbal International, “Manchester United is holding everything back,” before adding, “Disappointing that United is not cooperating.”
United are not expected to make any more moves at Old Trafford before the transfer market closes, according to reports.
The Red Devils have already signed four new players this summer, with Cristiano Ronaldo completing his long-awaited comeback on Tuesday morning.
The dynamic 36-year-old looked ready to join Manchester City on Friday, but instead decided to sign a two-year agreement with United, with Juventus receiving a small sum of £15 million plus £7 million in add-ons.
Earlier in the summer, England winger Jadon Sancho, free agency goalkeeper Tom Heaton, and long-term target Raphael Varane were also signed.
Solskjaer recently stated that he is pleased with United’s summer business, but added that there is always potential for progress at the top level.
Last week, Solskjaer told reporters, “Any manager, like Jose [Mourinho] mentioned last week, is always seeking for a little bit more.”
“However, I feel compelled to say that.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
