Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek was reportedly expecting to play the limited role he has this season when he agreed to join from Ajax last summer.
Van de Beek, 23, became a United playing during last year’s summer transfer window in a deal worth £39m, as per Sky Sports.
However, despite being highly-rated and one of Europe’s most technical and versatile midfielders, van de Beek has found it tough to break into his new side’s starting line-ups.
After starting just two Premier League matches since the start of the season, it’s fair to say the Dutch midfielder has not been the most active members of the Red Devils’ squad.
However, despite the rumour mill being in full swing, with several suggestions the club could be looking to offload the star already, according to a recent from the Times, that is not quite the case.
The report claims that whilst convincing van de Beek to snub other clubs in favour of United, Solskjaer informed the 23-year-old that it may take this long to become an establish first-team player.
Despite his slow introduction, van de Beek was part of the United starting 11 who beat Liverpool 3-2 during Sunday’s FA Cup tie. The Dutchman will now be looking to extend his run in the side.
So, nothing to worry about it seems.
