The Eredivisie star was highly impressive in Ajax’s (domestic) double winning campaign last term in which they also reached the semi finals of the Champions League. In the KO stages of the CL, the 22-year-old scored away from home against Italian champions Juventus and Spurs.

Overall, in all competitions, He scored 17 goals and provided 13 assists last season under the management of Eric Ten Hag. The likes of De Ligt and De Jong opted to leave the Dutch champions in the summer but Van de Beek stayed put.

This season, in 26 appearances, the highly rated Netherlands star has directly contributed in 16 goals (8 goals and 8 assists). He made his senior international debut back in 2017 and has played 9 times for the country so far.

Van de Beek is a versatile talent, who mainly plays in the central attacking midfield role behind the main center forward but can effectively pull strings in the central midfield as well.

At Old Trafford, in the central midfield, Man Utd have neither got quality nor depth. Moreover, Solskjaer has not got a top CAM in his squad and in such a scenario, the Norwegian manager must splash the cash to lure reinforcements this month.

In your view, is Donny van de Beek good enough to improve Manchester United?
