Man United ‘willing’ to offer out-of-favour star in exchange for Juventus midfielder

According to Wednesday’s printed edition of Tuttosport (via MEN), Manchester United’s hierarchy is growing increasingly more frustrated with Donny van de Beek and could offer him to Juventus in exchange for Adrien Rabiot.

Despite only joining United last summer, rumours surrounding van de Beek’s long-term future have been continually speculated.

After making just two Premier League starts since his arrival, it’s fair to assume the Dutchman’s time in Manchester hasn’t quite gone to plan.

Seemingly out-of-favour with current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, van de Beek has struggled to impress, even on the rare opportunities he has been gifted.

Worryingly for Red Devils fans, recent reports in Italy have claimed the club’s decision-makers are already preparing for life after van de Beek.

Should these reports be anything to go by, United could be in line to offer the Old Lady their 23-year-old playmaker in exchange for French midfielder Rabiot.

In a similar position and continually linked with a move away from Turin, Rabiot, too, finds himself cast aside by his manager.

Despite the claims, it’s still hard to imagine United spending nearly £40m for a top-tier player just to offload them a matter of months later – But you never know, and as the saying goes; “stranger things have happened at sea.”

    Well to be fail with ole .i don’t really think that he is the man which can have an out of favour player and the reason is he kept giving chances to the likes of martial/lingard/pereira(even james last season)while they were producing nothing and he got all the blame on his self from fans or pundits nor whatever the guys kept leaving him down each game they played . Especially lingard which he said that he was the fittest after last season restarted. Anyway the point is that united got van de beek cause they were afraid of pogba’s situation,if they have known that pogba gonna stay this season as well they won’t bring de beek (or if they had sign ole’s top target as well aka grealish) futhermore you can see this as an opportunity to let him settle down without the pressure of the instant impact or fans or whatever until pogba is sold so he can step up. But i guarantee you that if fans were allowed to stadiums de beek’s life would have been worse than now. Ole is defending him in this way even if it is ruining his career(which I don’t realy think that a player of his age can ruin his career for a wasted season)take the Chelsea’s examples of xiyech werner havertz are they are good till now for premier league definitely no . Neither is donny . In his appearances he didn’t justify his manager for selecting him. Also if donny was out of favour it would have been him loaned and not jesse..

    would love to know who are these ‘United decision Makers’ because the decision on whether United keep or sell a player should lie with Solskjaer and him alone. But how a decision can be made on a player who has not been given a fair crack of the whip.
