Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is attracting interest from Premier League clubs, including Newcastle United and Everton.
According to a report from ESPN, Donny van de Beek is seemingly frustrated at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his lack of game-time at Manchester United. As such, he is weighing up his options in the upcoming January transfer window, and a potential exit from Old Trafford could be on the cards.
Van de Beek is already courted by a few Premier League clubs, including Newcastle United and Everton. Both clubs are apparently keen on signing the midfielder on a loan deal in January as they look to shore up their options in the middle of the park.
It remains unclear how Manchester United are expected to react to van de Beek’s transfer speculation. But having played in just 16 minutes of league football, it is apparent that the player is not highly valued by Solskjaer, who has also mistreated a few more of United’s fringe players, including Jesse Lingard.
Much like van de Beek, the Englishman, too, could be on the verge of an Old Trafford exit in January, with West Ham prepared to snap him up on a permanent deal. Lingard is also courted by Newcastle United, who are one of the frontrunners in the race to sign van de Beek.
It is quite evident that the Magpies are keen on reinforcements in the creative department, after recently announcing the appointment of Eddie Howe as the new manager. The addition of a star player like van de Beek, in that regard, could go a long way in improving the club’s chance-creation in the final third.
Everton, meanwhile, are also on the hunt for a new midfielder as coach Rafa Benitez has been unfortunate with injuries to star players like Andre Gomes and Abdoulaye Doucoure. The Spaniard fancies a move for van de Beek, who can bring a bit of versatility to the table and add more dynamism and creativity in the final third.
A move to either of these two clubs could bode well for the player himself, giving him the opportunity to relaunch his career after a disastrous spell at Old Trafford. He will be hoping to replicate the success Lingard achieved during his loan spell at West Ham last season, although it won’t be surprising to see the Dutchman moving to a different league.
Real Madrid, AC Milan and Barcelona have all been linked with a move for the Manchester United midfielder in recent memory, so it will be interesting to see how this transfer saga takes shape in the coming months.
