Eintracht Frankfurt want Man Utd midfielder in first training session after transfer window reopens

Eintracht Frankfurt are keen on including Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek in their first training session after the transfer window reopens, according to Kicker.

The Netherlands international has been deemed surplus to requirements and he is widely expected to leave the club on loan at the start of 2024.

Frankfurt are in advanced talks to land him and they are eager on having him onboard for their first training session after the window reopens.

The Bundesliga outfit have several players in their squad, who are likely to travel to the African Cup of Nations in the Ivory Coast in early January.

It appears they want Van de Beek to fill the void left in the creative department.

Van de Beek edging closer to Man Utd loan exit

The 26-year-old has been a fringe player for United this term. He has played less than 30 minutes in all competitions and has been a regular unused substitute.

Van de Beek recently admitted that he may have to leave for regular playing time and the same was acknowledged by manager Erik ten Hag earlier this month.

Hence, it is only a matter of time before he heads for the exit door. Frankfurt are reluctant to meet his wages and United may have to contribute part of his salary.

Aside from Frankfurt, surprise La Liga leaders Girona have also been linked with Van de Beek, but the German outfit are clearly in the driving seat to sign him.

United spent £35 million to purchase Van de Beek from Ajax three years ago. They will be hoping that he makes a big impact such that they can recoup part of the fee next summer.
