Report: Van de Beek set for showdown talks with Ed Woodward

The Netherlands international, who joined Manchester United with great promise, has started just two games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

According to the Daily Star, Van de Beek has had enough and is ready to quit the Red Devils. He’s not getting much of a look in at the moment and it’s hard to see a way for him to break the preferred Fred-McTominay midfield combo.

The former Ajax midfielder reportedly plans to hold showdown talks with United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward before the end of the season to question why he hasn’t been selected to play more games.

I would like to suggest meeting with Solskjaer rather than Woodward. I really hope a businessman is not in charge of selecting the team every week because he’s overstepping the mark enough already by sticking his nose into other football matters.

Van de Beek needs to bide his time or decide to walk away quietly in the summer. It’s not going to end well if he throws his toys out of the pram.

The manager has the licence to decide the team every week. Our league position speaks volumes and there’s still a chance to win two cups.

On top of that, hasn’t Van de Beek been injured lately? We’ve had a lot of injuries lately and I’m sure he would have got more game time this season if he was fit, especially in the Europa League against AC Milan. He missed the game last week due to a knock.
