Transfer mogul Fabrizio Romano confirms that Manchester United are signing Donny Van de Beek very soon. The Dutchman will join United for a fee of around €40m and will sign a contract until 2025. Van de Beek is expected to reach United’ medical facilities and will be officially announced soon.
This raises a lot of questions and sends us into deep thinking. Van de Beek is 23 and will be looking for a starter role in the squad. The midfield will be highly imbalanced on the defensive front if Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Van de Beek play together in a three-man midfield setup.
Former Liverpool player Danny Murphy agrees to the point. Speaking on Monday’s White and Sawyer, the Talksport pundit said:
“I’m just thinking about where Van de Beek is going to play…
“Playing with Fernandes and Pogba? Do you really think that?
“Do you know what I think? I think that Pogba could be off. That signing to me says Pogba is off.”
We don’t agree with Murphy though. United are going to play two games per week- competing in four competitions. With United’s injury record, its fair to say that Van de Beek will get a lot of action.
Van de Beek is a fantastic addition and we hope United will continue to sign similar players.
