Fabrizio Romano: Arsenal not in for Manchester United star Donny van de Beek
The 24-year-old was United’s marquee signing last summer and arrived at Old Trafford to much hype after a successful spell at Ajax Amsterdam. He got off to an excellent start by scoring on his debut against Crystal Palace but has since struggled.
In all, he made 36 appearances all season, of which just 21 came off the bench. It was perhaps fitting that he remained an unused substitute during our Europa League final loss to Villarreal. (h/t Transfermarkt)
According to The Mirror, Arsenal was ready to offer the struggling Dutchman an escape route from Old Trafford. While the Gunners are in the market for a new midfielder, they do not appear to be keen on Van de Beek.
Romano goes on to add that there have been no talks between either clubs not the player’s agent. Whether Arsenal will turn their attentions to the Dutchman in the future remains to be seen.
Despite a difficult season, Van de Beek was handed a spot in the Netherlands squad for this summer’s Euros. His joy was however short-lived as an injury ruled him out of the competition. He last made an international appearance against Gibraltar in March.
Van de Beek was signed in anticipation of Paul Pogba’s departure. However, the Frenchman enjoyed an impressive campaign and could even sign a new deal to stay at Old Trafford.
According to The Telegraph (Subscription Required), Van de Beek is set to hold showdown talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer regarding his future this summer. The result of their meeting should make for interesting viewing.

One of the best players in the Eredivisie, his arrival at United was met with much fanfare. Van de Beek has however failed to build on his promise. With a full season now under his belt, he will hopefully go on to fulfil his potential at the Theatre of Dreams.
