According to reports by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is poised to depart from the club during the January transfer window.
Romano has shared quotes from the Dutch international, indicating his desire for more regular playing time and an openness to leave.
Van de Beek, at 26, has seen limited action this season, making only one substitute appearance in the Premier League and one in the Carabao Cup under manager Erik ten Hag.
Expressing his wish to secure more consistent game time, the midfielder is vocal about his intention to seek a transfer.
Despite his desire to leave, Van de Beek’s prospects of finding a new Premier League club mid-season might prove challenging.
With a reported weekly wage of £120,000, the Dutchman has yet to make a significant impact during his time in England.
Even during a loan spell at Everton, he struggled to leave a lasting impression, and rumored links with Crystal Palace in the summer of 2023 did not materialize.
Van de Beek’s Premier League journey has been challenging, and it remains uncertain if another English top-flight club would express interest in acquiring him during the upcoming January transfer window.
With 42 Premier League appearances to his name, the midfielder has contributed three goals and one assist.
As of now, Manchester United holds the eighth position in the Premier League table with 21 points from 12 matches, trailing five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have played 12 matches.
