Manchester United signed Donny Van de Beek in the 2020-21 season for a fee of €40 million, but since then he has struggled to opt for a place in the starting line-up for the Red Devils. Even though he scored on his United debut, he did not get into the playing 11 often. On the contrary, Fred who has made many mistakes and has cost United at times is preferred over Van de Beek by Solskjaer. Donny’s frustration was seen at the Villarreal game when he was furious at Ole substituting Fred instead of him.

Donny has performed well in the limited chances United have given him and it is yet to be understood why other players are preferred over him. According to Daily Mail, Donny wants to push for his move away from the Red Devils. Van de Beek must’ve thought that this is a dream come true when he arrived at Old Trafford but it has now turned out to be a nightmare for him. Moreover, Newcastle are now interested in signing Donny Van de Beek following their recent takeover.

Some players at United are also not happy with Solskjaer’s treatment of Donny. The sacking of Solskjaer seems nearly imminent which can make Donny the happiest man on Earth. While Van de Beek can get another chance at United under a new manager.

Why Van de Beek is right to leave United?

Playing for a club like Manchester United is a dream for many players and Donny has lived it but not the way he was expecting it to be. He was a part of the Ajax 2018-19 squad which reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. He also scored against Juventus in the quarter-final and Tottenham in the semi-final. Many thought he would make a huge impact on the side considering his experience in the Champions League. However, he was not even picked up in starting lineup on many occasions.

On the other hand, United have suffered a lot due to Fred’s silly mistakes and errors and still starts almost every game for them. Donny has impressed defensively in the Carabao cup matches. Meanwhile, Fred makes defensive mistakes, costly errors and contributes very little to attack. While a player of Donny’s quality is a waste on the bench and should be playing more. Donny is rightly frustrated about his playing time but he should reconsider his decision to leave. Manchester United may soon enough bring in a new manager and his tactical and positional awareness can thrive under a new boss. If United makes a decision till January, Donny can stay until the summer.

How Donny can stay at United even after a disastrous first season?

It is a loss for any team to lose a player like Donny Van de Beek. Manchester United have made nothing out of this signing and could lose a great player. They may regret it if he goes to another club and shines there. United have experienced this before and would not want to experience it again. The Red Devils should make a decision over Solskjaer as soon as possible. A new manager can solve Donny’s problems and other problems on the pitch as well. The lack of playing time has cost Donny his place in the Netherlands squad as well. His decision to leave seems right if Solskjaer remains at the seat for longer. According to recent reports, Brendan Rodgers is the favourite to replace Solskjaer at United. While Donny can thrive under a system like Rodgers’ but he will have to work hard for making his place in the starting XI.
