Gary Neville has told Donny van de Beek what to do about Man Utd to Newcastle transfer link

The Dutch midfielder has been heavily linked with a move this month.

Manchester United have sounded out Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund over the possibility of a potential loan exit for Donny van de Beek, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The 24-year-old as been limited to just 379 minutes of senior action this season, and struggled to make an impact under former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or his successor Ralf Rangnick.

As such, the MEN suggest that van de Beek is open to the possibility of leaving Old Trafford in the coming weeks, with Newcastle and Dortmund touted as potential destinations.

The midfielder came close to joining Everton on loan over the summer, but ultimately ended up staying in Manchester instead.

With a World Cup place up for grabs at the end of the year, however, it is understood that the former Ajax man is particularly keen to earn more first team minutes - especially after missing out on the Netherlands’ last three international squads.

What has Gary Neville said about van de Beek’s future?

Speaking after Man United’s defeat to Leicester City back in October, the Old Trafford legend questioned the Dutchman’s lack of game time and urged him to seek a fresh challenge and more minutes elsewhere.

As quoted by Metro, Neville said: “Why’s Donny van de Beek not being given a chance?

“There’s something about that. He’s not been given a chance for 18 months so you’ve got to come to the conclusion that Ole didn’t sign him or he doesn’t fancy him.

“Neither is good for Donny van de Beek so I think he needs to go and play football somewhere.”
