‘Teacher’ coach Eric Ten Haag couldn’t save it either. Donny van de Beek is leaving Manchester United. The destination is Real Sociedad.
Van de Beek is one of the key members when Ajax achieves the Dutch Eredivisie championship and the European Champions League (UCL) semifinals, and is the favorite disciple of coach Ten Hag.
Van de Beek, who moved to Manchester United in the 2020-21 season based on his performance at Ajax, was expected to add vitality to Manchester United’s midfield because of his high activity, excellent off-the-ball ability, and active participation in defense.
But he never got a chance to play. In the 2020-21 season, he played in a total of 36 games, including 15 starts, but this season, he was not selected by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and in most of the games he played, he was replaced on the pitch with just a few minutes left before the end. was just stepping on He eventually chose to loan Everton to play, but even that wasn’t successful, and he returned to Manchester United last season.
Still, there was some positive news. Ahead of last season, his expectations were high as coach Ten Hag, who was a gift from his time at Ajax, took over. The pair had had their best years at Ajax together, so many expected that Ten Haag would be able to get Van de Beek back on track.
Van de Beek did not immediately start playing. However, after the opening, his expectations were raised as he appeared as a substitute in three consecutive matches of the English Premier League (EPL). But injuries got in the way. He has been off power for about two months. After returning at the end of October, Van de Beek began to get opportunities to play again little by little.스포츠토토
But the worst happened to him. Van de Beek started against Bournemouth in early January. He got a chance to start after a long time, but was injured just before the end of the first half and was substituted. And as a result of the test, he was ruled out of the season. The old teacher who used to play for himself at Ajax took over, but the season ended without being able to play properly.
Eventually, Van de Beek’s chances of leaving Manchester United increased. In a situation where there are already many good midfielders such as Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Fred, and Scott McTominay, even Mason Mount was recruited, and the competition for the starting position became more difficult.
His next destination is Real Sociedad. Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his social media on the 2nd (Korean time), “Real Sociedad approached Manchester United today (1st) to sign Van de Beek. “This is my first official contact with Manchester United, subject to conditions decided by United.”
The British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ also reported that “Man Utd’s midfielder Van de Beek is negotiating with Sociedad for a transfer.”
