The Netherlands manager Frank de Boer has dismissed rumors that Donny van de Beek has requested to leave Manchester United.
Frank de Boer
believes that the formerAjax
midfielder is not happy atManchester United
but sees no reason to panic about his future at the club.
Van de Beek
was expected to thrive in the Premier League but he has been struggling for regular game time under
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
since joining the Red Devils in September.
It has been suggested that the 23-year-old midfielder has already asked to leave the club at the end of the season, but De Boer has rubbished all the claims.
“I spoke to Ajax and they said there's no truth in it at all. He didn't ask to speak to them,"
the Netherlands head coach toldtalkSPORT
“He's just focusing on his recovery on his ankle, and it's not true that he asked Man Utd to leave.
“His agent also told me that of course he's not happy that he's not playing. He's only had two starts under Solskjaer and that's not what he hoped for when he joined Man Utd.
“He's not worried, of course he wants to play every game. But he's not worried that he can't succeed.
“He has to have a review after this year, asking where do I stand? Do I have a possibility to succeed here or not? Otherwise, I have to make a move.
“We will see where he's heading next year, maybe he stays at Man Utd or maybe another club is interesting for him.
“But he's not panicking at all, he told the manager he's so happy at Man Utd because the club is one of the best in terms of how they treat him, he feels loved.”
