Transfer News: Fabrizio Romano reveals Manchester United have not offered Donny van de Beek to Real Madrid
The 24-year-old signed 13 months ago for the Red Devils for £39million. He was touted to be a great signing, but he has not had the chance to showcase his talent yet. The midfielder is often seen warming on the bench or making a late appearance as a substitute.
His two starts have come against BSC Young Boys in the Champions League and West Ham in the EFL Cup. It does not bode well for him that United lost both games. But his performances have warranted at least one league start this campaign, something he is yet to achieve.
A move in January is apparently on the cards if he continues to suffer for game-time. Real Madrid were thought to be one of the clubs in the running. Los Blancos have an ageing midfield line, and Van de Beek could have added a youthful approach.
However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano recently revealed that the Dutchman has not been offered to the 13-time European champions. He added that several clubs are ‘interested’, but no talks have been held with the Spanish giants.
The former Ajax man is of interest to both Newcastle and Wolves, but a deal might only be negotiated in January. Till then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could make him a part of his plans.

Paul Pogba is out of action until the end of the year, and the Dutch international might be called upon soon. Moreover, the Norwegian is under pressure at Old Trafford and might just try every strategy in the book to avoid the sack.
If the midfielder proves key in turning around the club’s fortunes after the international break, he might have a future at the theatre of dreams, rendering his departure in January moot.
