Manchester United BLOCK Donny Van De Beek From Joining Premier League Side, It's Getting Nasty

Manchester United have 'blocked' Donny van de Beek's from joining a Premier League side on deadline day - with his agent now speaking out.

One team who made a late swoop on Tuesday was Everton, who wanted to take the 24-year-old on loan according to Dutch outlet AD.nl.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the Toffees a transfer was 'non-negotiable' and it means van de Beek will remain at Old Trafford.

In another twist however, agent Guido Albers has voiced his displeasure at United's lack of interest in sorting van de Beek's future.

He told VL: "Today I have been trying to find a club for Donny. Everyone knows the situation. We worked very hard for it, but the club is blocking everything. There was much interest from Italy, Germany & England.

"I prefer not to bring this up. Everyone who knows Donny.... he just wants to play football, he loves football. So from my reaction... I think you can tell.

"Manchester United looked to be giving permission, but eventually they didn't. It's been painful lately."

Van de Beek arrived from Ajax last summer in a deal worth £35 million but he failed to establish himself in the team.

Despite scoring off the bench in his debut against Crystal Palace, he was limited to mainly substitute appearances all season.

He's found it hard to dislodge star midfielder Bruno Fernandes, while he isn't suited to playing further back like Fred and Scott McTominay.

Van de Beek missed Euro 2020 with the Netherlands through injury and has been left out of the squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Manager Louis van Gaal bluntly explained his omission is down to a lack of game time at club level.

He said: "I spoke to Donny van de Beek last night, for 45 minutes. But I am not going to tell you anything, this is between Donny and me.

"But, I am capable of advising players. I told him that he needs to start playing games."

Solskjaer insists van de Beek has a Red Devils future despite his lack of minutes.

"He can play as a one or as a two in midfield," said Solskjaer prior to Sunday's 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"Of course we've looked at ways of getting one of the two to go forward.

"That's something that Scott is very good at, Paul [Pogba] is good at and Donny is good at but it's not as easy as that. It depends on who you've got in front of you.

"In the first game [vs Leeds] of course we played really well, winning 5-1. I think that justified the team selection.

"In the next game against Southampton, Nemanja [Matic] deserved to play because he was our best player in pre-season, both on and off the pitch."

Do you think Donny van de Beek should've left Manchester United?
