Donny van de Beek, a midfielder for Man United, reportedly suffered another setback in his pursuit of a new team during the summer.
According to reports, an unlikely team turned down the chance to recruit Donny van de Beek, a midfielder for Manchester United.
When the Dutch midfielder transferred from Ajax to Old Trafford in 2020, he was in high demand. Van de Beek was a member of the team that, while being coached by Erik ten Hag, impressed in the Champions League and attracted the attention of all of European football.
Despite being reunited with his previous manager, the 26-year-old has struggled to earn a steady run of games for the Reds and has significantly slipped down the pecking order. Van van Beek has only made 24 appearances for the Reds since the 2021/22 season, including eight starts, and is viewed as surplus to needs.
Real Sociedad had interest in the midfielder during the summer transfer window, but no agreement could be reached. Since then, he has been connected to transfers to both Turkish and Qatari clubs, whose transfer windows are still open.
Van van Beek has few alternatives left after spending time on loan at Everton in 2022. However, Anderlecht was one team that ‘turned down’ the chance to recruit the United midfielder during the summer, according to Belgian site DH.
Other reports say that Real Madrid is still keeping tabs on United’s youngster Alejandro Garnacho. Prior to agreeing to a new contract over the summer, the 19-year-old’s name was connected to a move to the Spanish city.
According to the current report, Real have not let up on their ambitions to sign the Argentina international in the future. According to the article, Madrid would view Garnacho as “an investment for the future” and may make an attempt to recruit him within “the next two or three years.”
