Donny van de Beek continues to interest Everton
Brands, the director of football at Everton, confirmed that Toffees made an effort to pull 24-year-old Donny van de Beek out of Man Utd over the summer and may reevaluate that situation in January.
Donny van de Beek keeps on fighting
The talented midfielder continues to fight for regular playing time at Old Trafford, just five minutes into Premier League action this season. Benitez had hoped to offer the 24-year-old a clean slate during the last transfer window, but efforts to close a deal with northwest rivals proved problematic.
What did Brands say about Donny?
Marcel Brands reported Everton’s failed bid for Donny van de Beek to be on their list. At the beginning of the transfer window, they asked Man Utd, it was not possible then. At the end of the window he received a call from Albers, his agent, that Donny could be rented in the end. But it was canceled at the last minute. Stopped again.
While the Toffees were unable to close a deal before the deadline passed, there may be an opportunity to rekindle interest over the winter.
Marcel is not ruling anything out, saying when they argue over whether another move will be made, they always depend on whether the club wants to cooperate. And this is the beginning of October, so much more can happen with injuries. Man Utd play on different fronts, it’s hard to tell right now.
Of course, I’m sorry for Van de Beek. Donny is a very good player, no doubt about that. Such a boy wants to play and wants to return to the Dutch national team. But you know that in such a club the pressure is great and the competition is huge.
According to Marcel Brands when you see Man Utd sitting on the bench against Everton over the weekend: Pogba, Sancho, Ronaldo. The Toffes played a 1-1 draw with Man Utd on their last run to the Premier League, with Townsend canceling the Martial’s opening ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous goal celebration ahead of a packed Old Trafford.
