Manchester United Football Club are still a midfielder or two light, despite up-turn in form from Fred, an improvement from Scott McTominay and some sublime football from Bruno Fernandes.
Don’t forget that Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera have been moved on, with only one player brought in as a replacement…
Enter, Donny van de Beek. The story comes from French outlet Le10Sport, who state that United are ‘interested’ in signing the classy 23-year-old midfielder.
However, the crux of the article is based on Real Madrid, with United facing competition from the European giant – who are apparently set to launch a bid for Van de Beek.
The Ajax man was a key cog in that Ajax team who were literal seconds away from reaching a Champions League final. That side has since been broken up, with Van de Beek one of the last guys who still play their football in the Eredivisie.
It feels like an inevitability that he’ll be on the move this summer, provided the right offer comes in for him of course.
I’d like to think that United will be at the forefront of that queue as Van de Beek is an exceptional talent who would improve any side in world football.
