Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is looking to leave the club during the January transfer window in order to find regular first-team football, according to reports.

Fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace are interested in bringing the Dutch international to Selhurst Park on loan until the end of the season, but now face competition from other clubs.

According to ESPN, teams in Spain and Italy are also looking at signing the 24-year-old before the winter window closes.

They add that talks between United and Palace are ‘ongoing’ and the Red Devils are looking for van de Beek’s wages to be covered in full, as well as a loan fee in order for the midfielder to leave.

The Dutchman has made just 14 appearances in all competitions for Ralf Rangnick’s side and ESPN claim Van de Beek is one of four players his manager is willing to leave this month.

However, the Mirror says otherwise, with the site implying the Red Devils are ‘reluctant’ to let Van de Beek go during the winter window, as they could need him if another Covid-19 outbreak occurs at Old Trafford.

Van de Beek will be hoping he’ll be allowed to join another team on loan before Monday’s deadline in order to regain his place in the Netherlands’ World Cup squad.

Anthony Martial, another player at United who wanted a move elsewhere due to game-time, joined Sevilla on Tuesday, so there could be a possibility for Van de Beek to follow him out the exit door.

The January transfer window closes at 11pm on Monday 31 January.
