Fabrizio Romano reveals Man Utd player is ‘planning to leave’ club

According to renowned transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is “planning to leave” the club in January.

The Dutch international joined the Red Devils from Ajax last year for a fee that could increase to £40 million with add-ons.

Despite his high transfer fee, the midfielder only started four Premier League games last season, totaling 36 appearances across all competitions.

The 24-year-old remained at United this summer, but he has only appeared in six league games this season. Van de Beek stated last month that he believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer “has plans” for him.

And, speaking to  The United Stand, Romano claims that the player is looking to leave Old Trafford as soon as possible.

He said: “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 to three months, he will leave, I am sure.”

In other news, Nicky Butt admits that Manchester United fans’ “love” for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be enough to keep him in the job for long.

In an interview with The Athletic, the former midfielder praised Solskjaer, saying the Norwegian manager needs to win trophies if he wants to keep his job because United fans’ patience will only go so far.

“Things are getting better and Ole has done a very good job,” Butt said.

“There’s a lot of love for Ole from fans, but that only takes you so far with fans.

“The biggest challenge for Ole now is to go and produce — to win a title or trophies. He’ll know that deep down, he’s a very intelligent guy.

“It’s a business that needs to win and there has been huge investment into that business so it’s calling out to win.”
