Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has run out of patience and wants to leave Old Trafford in the New Year if his game time doesn’t improve, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Italian journalist, who is usually very reliable when it comes to transfer stories, claims that the Dutchman has interest from Everton as well as teams on the continent.
“In the summer, they had a chance to sell him with Everton keen on deadline day. Things can change, but as of now, he is planning to leave Manchester United in January. Van de Beek is a fantastic player and a top professional. It is true that Italian and Spanish clubs are interested and it depends whether Man United can agree on the conditions with them. He could also move to the Premier League, with Everton one of the clubs interested. Donny wants to play so if he is not playing in two-three months, he will leave, I am sure.”
Everton’s Director of Football Marcel Brands has recently revealed they were close to snapping up van de Beek on deadline day back in August, but it remains to be seen what United’s stance will be in January.
The Netherlands international has made only three appearances so far this campaign, with his starts coming in the 2-1 defeat to Young Boys and the 1-0 loss to West Ham in the Carabao Cup.
Van de Beek was also linked with Arsenal in June, but it does seem as though Everton would be the favourites for his signature at the moment.
