A Frustrating Time at Old Trafford
Manchester United’s Dutch ace Donny van de Beek has experienced a tough time since arriving at the Theatre of Dreams. Signed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for £40 million from Ajax in 2020, the midfielder has failed to establish himself in the Red Devils first team.
Starting just four Premier League games in his first season at the club, the 24-year-old Dutch international has failed to start a league game this season. Since the departure of Solskjaer and the arrival of Rangnick, any optimism from the player that he would receive more game time has quickly faded. Just seven minutes have come his way in the league since the arrival of the new manager. Now could be a good time for the van de Beek to move elsewhere to gain the game time he desperately needs.
Palace Leading the Way but Valencia Also Interested
Crystal Palace are believed to be leading the way to sign van de Beek on loan; however, Spanish side Valencia are also keen on a loan deal. Both teams are currently mid-table in the respective leagues are looking for new signings to boost their chances of finishing higher. Valencia are currently tenth in La Liga while the Eagles are 13th in the Premier League.
Donny van de Beek is still considered to have a future at Old Trafford and despite Ralf Rangnick’s reluctance to let him go, he may decide it is in the best interests of a player desperate for game time. Just as long as there’s no option to buy at the end of any loan deal agreed.
