Manchester United are still reshaping their team, with Roma manager Jose Mourinho considering a move for players who are no longer in Erik ten Hag’s plans.
Jose Mourinho is considering a deal for Donny van de Beek, a Manchester United misfit who is eager to leave Old Trafford.
Van van Beek joined the Red Devils in 2020 but has yet to impress any of the club’s coaches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ralf Rangnick, and Erik ten Hag have all ruled out the midfielder.
As a result, he has battled for game time, making only 10 appearances in all competitions this season. In January, the Dutchman suffered a knee injury that kept him out of action for the rest of the season.
Although he has two years left on his contract, it looks that the injury means he has already played his final game for United. Van de Beek is weighing his alternatives, since United is willing to sell him.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Roma has taken notice of Van de Beek’s position. Mourinho is presently in control of the Serie A giants, and he is planning a raid on the club he previously coached.
Van van Beek is no longer a part of the Red Devils’ plans and will leave Old Trafford. Roma have been approached about a possible move, but the Italian club does not consider him a priority.
If Van van Beek does not find a new permanent home in the next weeks, they may be tempted to sign him on loan. So far, Roma has been focused on departures, with both Benjamin Tahirovi and Justin Kluivert departing the Stadio Olimpico.
It was reported earlier this month that Van de Beek had decided it was time to leave United. He was a peripheral figure after failing to acquire Ten Hag’s trust, which prompted him to leave.
The Dutchman hopes to be ready for preseason and is now looking for more regular game time. He previously left United on loan for Everton, but that deal did not proceed as planned.
And, with United wanting to bolster their midfield options, it looks Van de Beek’s time is over. Former Manchester United player Paul Parker, who pushed him to quit Old Trafford in March, will be unsurprised.
“Even though it was his old manager who sold him to Manchester United, I believe Ten Hag knows it’s not going to work out for him.” “I think he was used incorrectly under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,” Parker stated.
“He arrived at an inconvenient time because of Covid.” He may need to return to Holland to revitalize his career. I don’t see him fitting into the Manchester United midfield right now.”
