Eintracht Frankfurt chief very confident of signing Man Utd midfielder on loan

Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche has said that he is very confident that Manchester United midfielder will join the club on an initial loan deal.

The Dutch international has been a fringe player for the Red Devils this term and he has played just 21 minutes across all competitions under manager Erik ten Hag.

As a result, we are not surprised that he is moving on. Van de Beek underwent a successful medical with Frankfurt earlier this week and small details are left to be finalised.

The Bundesliga outfit will have the option to buy him for less than €10 million and Krösche has told Kicker that he is confident that the midfielder will join the club soon.

He said: “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 on his way out of United

The 26-year-old has endured a difficult three-year spell with the Red Devils. He has registered just two goals and two assists from 62 appearances across all competitions.

Having gone completely out-of-favour this term, the club and Van de Beek have made the right decision to part ways as soon as the January transfer window reopens.

Van de Beek has struggled to cope with the intensity of the Premier League since his €39m move from Ajax and has the chance to revive his career in a fresh league next year.

The hierarchy will be hoping that he can make regular goal contributions such that Frankfurt are convinced to trigger the buy clause agreed as part of the loan deal.
