Solskjaer considering letting Man United midfielder leave in January

According to recent reports, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering allowing out of favour midfielder Donny van de Beek to leave in January.

That’s according to a recent report from the Mirror, who claims Solskjaer could sanction a winter departure for the midfielder.

Van de Beek, 24, joined the Red Devils last summer following a £35.1m move from Dutch side Ajax.

However, despite arriving in Manchester off the back of a hugely impressive breakthrough period with Ajax, van de Beek has since struggled to cement his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans.

Having started just four Premier League matches since joining well over 12-months ago, the Holland international has now put his frustrations on public display.

Following a recent admission from Everton Director of Football Marcel Brands, the Toffees were keen to offer the midfielder an escape from his Old Trafford nightmare earlier this summer – however, after being pushed back by the Red Devils, the Merseyside club was left disappointed.

However, it has since been reported that although a move was blocked last summer, one could be sanctioned once the winter window opens.

A potential transfer could be loan move as Solskjaer is understood to be keen to replicate the recent resurgence of Jesse Lingard, who spent last season out on loan with West Ham.

    Hopefully with a bit of luck Solskjar will be gone before then .

    Couldn’t agree more with Matt.
    DVB could have a decent future at Utd IF it wasn’t for the fraud of a manager we currently have who can’t even play Sancho on the right wing.
    Solskjaer is the problem picking Fred and McTomminay ahead of DVB. If Utd aren’t careful Sancho will be heading the way of DVB, get rid of Solskjaer now before it’s too late.
