Van de Beek to leave?

It’s been clear Donny van de Beek hasn’t been happy at United and has even had crisis talks with Solskjaer about his place at the club.

The manager spoke about the star’s unsettled period at the club earlier this season.

He said: “I wouldn’t say that Donny is happy. Of course, he wants to play more, but he gets about his job in the right manner.

“We are doing well and have got players who are playing really well in his position.

“He reminds me a lot about myself, when I first came in, that he understands my difficulties and challenges.

“I was the same with Sir Alex [Ferguson, former Man Utd head coach]. When he left me out I understood and I was happy for the team to win – and Donny is that type of guy.

“He knows he is important for us and knows he is going to play many games.”

However, it’s been reported by The Transfer Window Podcast that the star is not keen on a move to Borussia Dortmund in a deal that could be used to makeweight for England’s Sancho.
