Donny van de Beek will leave Manchester United in the next few days, and on January 1 he will go on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt.


Although the midfield player cannot formally complete the move until the transfer market opens in January, Fabrizio Romano has already stated that the agreement is finalised and that it would be “announced soon.”


After Van van Beek’s initial half-season loan to the Bundesliga team, Frankfurt and United will talk about whether to make the move permanent. The agreements provide a cost of €15 million (£13 million) including add-ons, albeit this is not required.


Van de Beek’s lacklustre tenure at United


In 2020, following his much-awaited departure from Ajax, Van de Beek never really got going while wearing a red shirt. Due to a combination of injuries, poor play, and limited game time, he has played a supporting role under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and, more recently, Erik ten Hag.


The 26-year-old is said to have rejected summer offers from teams in order to remain at Old Trafford, but he has only been given two cameos this season, totaling only 21 minutes of playing time.


For the benefit of his profession, let’s hope he can manage his own comeback in Germany.
