Manchester United players reportedly urged Donny van de Beek to switch agents in order to get his playing career back on track.

The talented midfielder has made just two starts in all competitions this season along with one substitute appearance in the Premier League.

Van de Beek was strongly linked with a loan move away last summer with a move looking likely to Everton, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blocked the switch to avoid being left short in midfield.

Reports suggest the Dutchman has now recently dropped agent Guido Albers and taken on the services of Ali Dursun in a bid to help orchestrate his move.

Dursun also represents Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong, Van de Beek’s close friend and former team-mate at Ajax, as well as United centre-back Victor Lindelof.

According to the Daily Mail, the 24-year-old sought assurances from players in the dressing room over his future and they told him finding a new agent was the right thing to do.

Having made just four league starts under Solskjaer since arriving from Ajax in the summer of 2020, Van de Beek is keen for a fresh challenge in January when the transfer window reopens.

The Daily Mail claim talks with Everton and Wolves have already taken place in recent weeks over a proposed loan move.

Linking up with new agent Dursun could now open up more doors for a loan move in the new year with the midfielder desperate for regular football in order to get back in the Netherlands team ahead of next year’s World Cup.

Earlier this month, former United right-back Gary Neville called on Van de Beek to seek an exit from the club after being outcasted by Solskjaer.

‘Why’s Donny van de Beek not being given a chance?’ said Neville.

‘There’s something about that. He’s not been given a chance for 18 months so you’ve got to come to the conclusion that Ole didn’t sign him or he doesn’t fancy him.

‘Neither is good for Donny van de Beek so I think he needs to go and play football somewhere.’
