Inter Milan interested in Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek?

Inter Milan interested in Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek?

Manchester United‘s Donny van de Beek has emerged as a transfer target for Inter Milan, according to a report.

The 25-year-old has not been able to nail down a regular place during his time at United since joining from Ajax for £35m in 2020.

Despite being a favourite under United’s current manager Erik ten Hag at Ajax, he has not been able to force his way into the team under his tenure, with only 19 minutes of competitive action to his name so far this season.

Van de Beek is under contract until 2025 but, considering he has fallen down the pecking order at the club, he may be forced to seek a move elsewhere as soon as January.

According to Fichajes, Inter Milan have made Van de Beek a priority transfer target, with the midfielder ready to push for a January exit if his situation at Old Trafford does not improve.

There was interest from his old club Ajax in the summer when they enquired about a season-long loan, but Ten Hag refused the approach from his former club.

Van de Beek attempted to kickstart his career in England as he spent the second half of last season on loan at Everton, but he only managed seven appearances under Frank Lampard and suffered a thigh issue which kept him out of action for eight games in total.

The Dutch international was integral to the Ajax side which reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018-19 season but his lack of game time at club level has seen him fall out of favour with the national team, with his last performance coming in March 2021.
