Donny van de Beek was denied a deadline day loan move by Manchester United after they failed to land their primary midfield target, according to Dutch outlet AD Sportwereld.
Eduardo Camavinga was heavily linked with the Red Devils this summer, but Real Madrid stepped in to secure his services for €40 million (per Goal.)
The move forced United to knock back reported interest from Everton, leaving van de Beek facing the prospect of another difficult season at Old Trafford.
Camavinga would have helped United resolve their midfield woes, but they have missed the opportunity to strengthen the position.
Much was expected of van de Beek after he joined United last summer, but he has failed to live up to expectations.
He made 36 appearances in all competitions last term, although the majority came from the bench during the final minutes of games.
Joining Everton on a temporary deal may have been appealing to van de Beek, giving him the opportunity to shine in the Premier League.
However, he must now attempt to force his way into United’s first team under a manager who doesn’t appear to rate him.
Having being denied the opportunity to move elsewhere, van de Beek will be hoping that Solskjaer delivers on his recent promise.
