Manchester United face Donny van de Beek dilemma amidst Eintracht Frankfurt’s loan decision

Manchester United must sell Donny van de Beek if Eintracht Frankfurt decide against activating the buy clause in his loan deal this summer.

Van de Beek joined the Bundesliga club on loan in January, with Frankfurt having the option to make the deal permanent for just €12 million.

According to Christopher Michel of Sport1, the Bundesliga club are not expected to sign Van de Beek permanently.

The Dutch midfielder has made only six appearances in the German top flight without registering any goals or assists.

Before moving to Frankfurt, he played only for 19 minutes under Erik ten Hag during the 2023/24 campaign.

Man United and Donny van de Beek must separate their paths

The 26-year-old joined United in 2020 after impressing everyone with his performances at Ajax.

The expectations were high for the talented midfielder, but his career has nosedived since his move to Old Trafford.

His tenure with United has been marked by sporadic appearances, either due to fitness issues or poor form.

Van de Beek’s current deal with United expires in less than 18 months. The Red Devils must offload the midfielder if he returns this summer.

They could also terminate his contract so his wages are off their books. Another loan move could also be on the cards if the former becomes a costly affair.

There is still time for Van de Beek to turn things around, but it seems highly unlikely that Frankfurt will trigger the clause.
