van de Beek, 23, arrived at United earlier this month after his £39m move from Ajax was finalised, as per Sky Sports.

The exciting Dutchman was in action for his new side yesterday as the Reds faced off in a pre-season friendly against fellow league rivals Aston Villa.

The Reds went onto lose the warm-up match 1-0 after an early goal from ex-Brentford forward Ollie Watkins decided the game.

However, despite the disappointing result, United fans have reasons to feel excited ahead of their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on September 19 after new-signing van de Beek showcased exactly what he is capable of.

The talented midfielder displayed a superb moment of skill to escape two Aston Villa players by performing his trademark ‘Maradona spin’.

    Yes brilliant but you lost the game. You have no defence and you’re targeting strikers that you won’t get

      It was a pre-season friendly. Newcastle got pumped 5-1 by Boro in a pre-season friendly then went out and performed really well in their 2-0 win over WHU yesterday – It literally means NOTHING other than to give players mins under their belts.
