Man Utd €44m signing unlikely to leave Old Trafford in January

By | October 13, 2021

The Dutch midfielder, Donny van de Beek is reportedly unlikely to be granted the chance to depart from Manchester United in January even if he continues to struggle for regular first-team football under Ole Gunnar Solskajer.

The former Ajax midfielder has only made three appearances for the 20-times English champions this season, while he has only played six minutes of Premier League football in 2021-22.

The 24-year-old playmaker is believed to be keen to push for a move away at the start of 2022, as he wants to ensure that he is a part of the Netherlands national team that will participate in the World Cup 2022.

Everton are believed to be considering reigniting their interest in January, however, according to ESPN, Man United head-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be reluctant to let him leave.

The report suggests that Solskjaer wants to keep the team together for the rest of the end of the season and is still confident that he will be able to hand Van de Beek enough football in the coming months.

The ex-Ajax youngster, who still has four years left to run on his current deal at Old Trafford, has found back of the net once and provided two assists in 39 games for the Red Devils in all competitions.
