Sporting director Markus Krösche of Eintracht Frankfurt expresses high confidence in the imminent arrival of Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek on an initial loan deal.
Despite being a fringe player at United under manager Erik ten Hag, Van de Beek underwent a successful medical with Frankfurt earlier this week, with final details yet to be concluded.
The Bundesliga club will have the option to purchase him for less than €10 million, and Krösche, speaking to Kicker, assures that he is optimistic about Van de Beek joining the team soon.
Krösche states, “I am very confident that Donny will be with us for the next six months. We still need quality, also across the board.
We need experience; we are a very young team. Donny can certainly help us with that.”
Van de Beek’s departure from United is a strategic move as the 26-year-old has faced challenges during his three-year tenure, contributing only two goals and two assists in 62 appearances across all competitions.
Having fallen out of favor this season, the decision to part ways in the upcoming January transfer window provides Van de Beek with an opportunity to revive his career in a new league, away from the Premier League’s intensity.
The hope is that he can make significant goal contributions, persuading Frankfurt to activate the buy clause agreed upon in the loan deal.
