Donny van de Beek has begged Manchester United to let him leave Old Trafford ‘hell’ after an embarrassing disaster.
Donny van de Beek has become a Manchester United outcast under Ole Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Donny van de Beek has become a Manchester United outcast, and now Ralf Rangnick of Crystal Palace is hoping to put a stop to his Old Trafford horror.
The Dutch international has become a complete pariah at United, and he is counting on Ralf Rangnick to put a stop to his misery.
Crystal Palace are the frontrunners in the race to sign Van de Beek on a season-long loan.
And the midfielder is so desperate to leave United that he has switched agents in order to improve his prospects of leaving the club.
His agent, Ali Dursun, is in talks with Palace regarding a short-term agreement, but van de Beek is still waiting to hear if United is willing to let him go.
Van de Beek’s £35 million move from Ajax to United in 2020 has turned into an embarrassment for the 24-year-old.
Since then, he has only made 27 appearances in all competitions, starting only two Premier League games in 2021.
Van de Beek, who has also been dropped from the Holland squad, sought to join Everton on a permanent basis last summer after becoming dissatisfied with his treatment at United, but the club vetoed the move and kept him.
Former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer promised him that he would be a part of his plans this season, but Van de Beek has only started four games so far. Phil Jones has started more games in the league than he has.
He anticipated that when Rangnick took over as temporary coach in November, he would be given more opportunities to shine.
But, like Solskjaer, Rangnick has neglected Van van Beek, who has made just one start in 11 games since taking over.
It’s made him feel betrayed by United, which he believes has broken promises to him.
Van van Beek, who has been heckled and insulted by fans outside the team hotel this season, understands he needs to find a new team before the deadline to jump-start his career and save his dream of playing for Holland at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
