Donny van de Beek’s agent has accused Manchester United of blocking a deadline day transfer away from Old Trafford.
Van de Beek has been rarely used by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since his £ 40million arrival from Ajax last summer, making 30 appearances mainly as a substitute.
He has been linked with a move to Everton today, with the Toffees apparently probing a loan transfer to the United hierarchy.
However, his agent, Guido Albers, has revealed that the club have given the red light to any deal – which has disappointed the Dutchman who simply wants more minutes.
“I’d rather not talk about it [how Van de Beek is feeling]”He told Dutch radio Voetbal International,” Anyone who knows Donny…. he just wants to play football, he loves football. So from my reaction… I think you can tell.
Earlier this summer, Dutch icon Ronald de Boer denied rumors that Van de Beek had asked Ajax to return this summer amid his continued struggles at United.
“I spoke to Ajax and they said there was no truth to it,” the former Barcelona and Rangers midfielder told talkSPORT 2. “He didn’t asked to talk to them.
“He’s just focusing on his ankle recovery, and it’s not true that he asked Man United to leave.”
