Report: Eintracht Frankfurt ‘s stance on £9.55m+ permanent Donny van de Beek transfer from Manchester United

Eintracht Frankfurt are ‘reluctant’ to activate the option that will allow them to sign Donny van de Beek permanently from Manchester United this summer

The loan move of Donny van de Beek to Eintracht Frankfurt provided him with an opportunity to rejuvenate his career after a challenging stint at Manchester United. However, reports suggest that Frankfurt may not exercise their option to sign him permanently due to his inconsistent performances since joining the German club.

Van de Beek’s struggles to establish himself at Manchester United after his promising spell at Ajax have been well-documented, and his loan move was seen as a chance for him to rediscover his form and confidence on the pitch. According to Bild (h/t Manchester Evening News), despite showing glimpses of his talent at Frankfurt, it appears that his performances have not been consistent enough to convince the club to commit to a permanent deal.

As a result, van de Beek could be set for a return to Manchester United at the end of his loan spell. His future at the club remains uncertain, and it remains to be seen whether he will be given another opportunity to prove himself under new management or if he will seek a fresh start elsewhere.

Disappointment for Frankfurt

Van de Beek’s loan spell at Eintracht Frankfurt has been characterized by underwhelming performances, leading to concerns from the club regarding his long-term future. Despite arriving with hopes of revitalizing his career, the midfielder has struggled to meet expectations and has failed to make a significant impact on the pitch.

Manager Dino Toppmöller has given van de Beek multiple opportunities to prove himself, but the Dutch midfielder has been unable to seize his chances and has found himself on the sidelines due to his lacklustre performances. He has started just four games for Frankfurt and was notably left out of the Europa League squad, highlighting the extent of his struggles to make an impact.

The 26-year-old’s inability to consistently perform at the level expected has led Frankfurt to reassess their long-term plans for him. With doubts surrounding his future at the club, it remains uncertain what the next steps will be for the midfielder, both in Germany and beyond.
