Girona agree deal to sign Donny van de Beek, working on personal terms

Donny van de Beek is expected to leave Manchester United permanently this summer, and he is expected to join La Liga club Girona.

According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, high-flying La Liga outfit Girona have now agreed on a deal to sign 27-year-old Manchester United playmaker Donny van de Beek, and they are now working on agreeing personal terms with the player. Girona will pay in add-ons for the player based on his appearances and performances.

The Dutchman has had a miserable time at Old Trafford, and he has failed to establish himself as a key player since his move from Ajax. He needs to leave Old Trafford to play regularly and a move to the Spanish club would be ideal.

Girona had an exceptional 2023/24 season in La Liga, and they secured UEFA Champions League qualification. They will need more quality and depth in the squad to do well across multiple competitions. So, the 27-year-old Manchester United playmaker could prove to be a useful acquisition.

Van de Beek would benefit from La Liga move

A move to La Liga would be ideal for the Dutchman as well, and a fresh start could help him regain his confidence and form. Van de Beek was highly rated in Europe prior to the move to Manchester United. He was an exceptional performer for Ajax, helping them reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League before leaving the club.

The move to Manchester United has not worked out, and the Red Devils will want to cut their losses on him as well. The 27-year-old has the time to get his career back on track with regular football at Girona, and it remains to be seen whether all parties can iron out the agreement in the next few days.

Meanwhile, van de Beek’s departure will free up the wage bill for Manchester United and it will be interesting to see if they can bring in a quality alternative. Manchester United need more craft in the middle of the park and signing a creative midfielder should be one of their priorities. They have been overly dependent on Bruno Fernandes for goals and creativity from the midfield.
