ManUnited star Donny van de Beek makes transfer decision
The Manchester United and Holland midfielder is being linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer and reports from Italy suggest he wants to remain in the Premier League
Arsenal have been linked with a shock move for Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek recently.
The 24-year-old suffered a nightmare first season at Old Trafford, with the Dutchman starting just four times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Premier League.
This undoubtedly will have been one of the most frustrating seasons in Van de Beek's careers to date and it's no surprise that he's being linked with a move away from Manchester.
Arsenal are interested in making a move and have 'made contact with Manchester United', according to a report from 90Min earlier this month, as Mikel Arteta looks to give the Netherlands midfielder a second chance in the English top-flight.
However, recent reports have suggested that the Gunners could face some serious competition for Van de Beek, with Inter Milan, Roma and AC Milan all said to be interested.
But Van de Beek sees his future in the Premier League, despite the frustrating spell he's endured so far in English football, according to FCInterNews.
The Holland international, who is sidelined from Euro 2020 after suffering a groin injury, may have been left out in the cold at Old Trafford last season, but Solskjaer said in January that the former Ajax star needed to remain patient in order to get his chance.
"Donny has played well when he's got the chance," Solskjaer said to United's official website. “I think we are too quick sometimes to jump on that if he isn’t playing, that it is a failure.
“Victor [Lindelof] and Fred are good examples in my team that it takes a little bit of time and now they are massively important players in our squad and in our team and it will be the same with Donny.
"He has come in and is in a midfield pool of players with quality, challenging with Bruno [Fernandes], Juan [Mata], Jesse [Lingard]. I’ve got loads of no.10s and loads of centre-midfielders with Paul [Pogba], Nemanja [Matic], Scott [McTominay], Fred.
"There are many of them and Donny has played well when he’s got the chance and that is a big thing, that you are ready. He is always ready, he works hard in training, [is] positive and he will make differences in many games for us this season, but he’ll grow more and more even for next year.”
Van de Beek arrived at Man United for around £35million and signed a five-year contract.
