Van de Beek’s agent: ‘Ronaldo's arrival is a bad news for us'

Mon 06 September 2021 | 4:57

Since joining Manchester United from Ajax last summer, the 24-year-old has struggled for game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and now with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, things have gotten worse for him, according to his agent.

Ronaldo shocked the world

 when he opted to return to a €23m fee this summer. However, that could be bad news for Donny Van de Beek as he could see his playing time reduced further despite receiving assurances he would feature in 2021-22.

 

"Cristiano arrived on Friday which we knew was bad news for us. Pogba plays on the left, and with Cristiano’s arrival it means another extra player in midfield, with Pogba moving away from the left

," the midfielder’s agent, Guido Albers, affirmed to 

Ziggo Sport

.

"We had conversations with Solskjaer and the board. We took the initiative to find a club and our search ended up at Everton. We opened talks with Marcel Brands and Farhad Moshiri.

"On Monday night [before deadline day] we received a call from Solskjaer and the club who told us that a transfer was out of question and that he had to report himself to training the next morning."

 

However, 

Albers 

is confident that 

Van de Beek

 will have the opportunity to shine.

"The perspective now is that we stated that Donny is not a Carabao Cup player, or FA Cup player, or to play only in European games. Donny went to England to play in the Premier League," 

he added.

"The way the conversation went this time [with Solskjaer] compared to last summer... things are much more clear now. I have full expectations that Donny will get his chance now.

"Donny worked extremely hard in the summer. He only had seven days off. The rest of the summer he trained to become top fit. He is totally ready."
