Manchester United midfielder Donny Van De Beek has reportedly chosen to join Everton on loan until the end of this season, as per the report from Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano (via the Sports review). 

The Dutchman joined the Old Trafford stadium back in 2020 from Ajax Amsterdam for around £35 million. However, the 24-years-old has failed to earn a first-team spot during the time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as well as the interim boss Ralf Rangnick. He has made only four starts in the Premier League over the last 18 months at the club, scoring two goals and assisting one time. 

As per Fabrizio Romano, after sacking Rafael Benítez from the managerial role, Everton has decided to appoint Frank Lampard and the Englishman has demanded the Dutchman’s signature from his new club’s hierarchy. 

Crystal Palace opened negotiations with Manchester United at first to sign the 24-years-old. But, the Eagles have failed to match the demands of the Old Trafford club. The Toffees entered the fray late in the transfer window. But, in the end, they are seemingly the winner in this race after agreeing to match the asking price of the Red Devils hierarchy. 

The Dutchman will join on a simple six months loan deal without any option to buy. The Merseyside club will reportedly cover the player’s full salary and also pay a loan fee. 

Will Van De Beek be able to showcase his talent at Everton under Lampard? 

Manchester United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick reportedly asked Van De Beek to stay at the club until the end of this season. However, the 24-years-old wasn’t keen on staying at the club. Given he has become frustrated with the lack of game time at the Old Trafford stadium. 

The move to Goodison Park could be a perfect destination for the Dutchman. As he will play under one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. And will be able to blossom under the Englishman’s tutelage. So, joining Everton was a shrewd decision by Donny Van De Beek. 

Meanwhile, following the 24-years-old’s departure, Manchester United now have way fewer opinions in the midfield of the park. However, the good news is Paul Pogba is looking likely to return to action. Following the conclusion of the international break. So, it will be interesting to see how the German manager’s side perform in the remainder of this season.
