Donny Van De Beek ‘Has Absolutely No Chance’ Of Staying At Manchester United

Paul Ince believes Donny van de Beek has “absolutely no chance” of making it at Manchester United and expects the midfielder to be offloaded in January.

Since joining the Red Devils during last summer’s transfer window, the Dutchman has barely been given a chance in the first team and has started just four games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Having gained a reputation from being part of Ajax’s stunning run to the 2019 Champions League semi-final, the 24-year-old arrived in a £40m deal - but his time at United could be coming to an end.

Van de Beek was handed a rare start against Young Boys on Tuesday, however, he was subbed at half-time before United's shock European defeat.

Having gone down to ten men due to Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card, Solskjaer defended his decision to sub off the out-of-favour midfielder, claiming it was "tactical decision". 

Adding further fuel to the fire, Ince - a former United midfielder with 206 appearances to his name - says the £40m man will "never make an impact" at Old Trafford.

“Absolutely no chance," said Ince when asked by The United Stand if he will turn out to be a success.

“It's always tough when you don't play to come and make an impression on your first start and to sub him off at half-time.

"What does it say to us, what does it say to the fans, what does it say to Donny? If I can't get a full game against Young Boys, ten men or no ten men, then it's time for me to go.

“There's nothing Ole could say that would persuade me that my future is at Manchester United."

Ince even went as far to name at least six players that are ahead of him in the pecking order as he tipped the United outcast to leave before the end of the campaign.

Van de Beek has found the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic in front of him in the pecking order and does not appear to fit into Solskjaer's system.
