Donny van de Beek could end up staying at Manchester United till next transfer window

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek could stay at Old Trafford until January, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The 26-year-old was wanted by Real Sociedad earlier this summer, but the La Liga club decided against signing him.

The Middle East could have been a possible destination for Van de Beek, but the transfer market for the Saudi Pro League closes in the next hour.

The only possible exit route left for the Dutchman is Turkey. Their transfer window is open for another week, with Fenerbahce interested in acquiring his services.

Man Utd failed to offload Donny van de Beek 

It will be a failure for Man United if Van de Beek stays at Old Trafford post this summer.

He was left out of the Red Devils’ 25-man squad for the 2023-24 Champions League group stage.

This shows he is no longer a part of Erik ten Hag’s plans.

Van de Beek switched to the Theatre of Dreams from Ajax in 2020 in a deal worth around £30 million.

He has made only 60 appearances for United as he faced problems with fitness and form.

Van de Beek spent time on loan at Everton in the 2021-22 season but failed to impress during his stint at Goodison Park.

The arrivals of Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat have pushed him further down in the pecking order.

The Red Devils will hope that Fenerbahce sign the midfielder, either permanently or on a loan.

Van de Beek needs an exit to revive a career that has nosedived over the past three years.
