Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek will sit down with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to decide on his future at the club this summer.

The Dutchman joined United in a £35million deal from Ajax last summer and his arrival was met with much excitement given his performances for the Dutch giants over the last three years.

However, van de Beek made just four Premier League starts during his first campaign with the Red Devils and two of those came at the end of the season when Solskjaer was rotating with one eye on the Europa League final.

The midfielder was signed in anticipation of Paul Pogba’s departure but the Frenchman enjoyed an impressive campaign and could sign a new deal to stay at Old Trafford.

Van de Beek was left on the bench for the entire 120 minutes as United were beaten by Villarreal in the Europa League final.

The Telegraph claim the Dutchman’s patience is wearing thin at the Theatre of Dreams and he’ll speak to Solskjaer about his situation before the start of next season.

United told the midfielder that it would take time to integrate him into the squad last summer but van de Beek has been surprised by the lack of opportunities afford to him.

The Dutchman’s future could be complicated further by Solskjaer’s plans to sign a new central midfielder this summer.

United are keen on West Ham ace Declan Rice, though the Hammers want around £100m for the midfielder.

Elsewhere, United hope to sign Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, as well as a centre-back.
