Manchester United are willing to accept a £2 million loan offer from Real Madrid for Van de Beek, according to a report in the Daily Star. The Dutch international has failed to impress in his first season at Old Trafford and is not expected to do well in the new season either.
Real Madrid had reached a personal agreement with van de Beek
In fact, Real Madrid had a personal agreement with Donny Van Der Beek before Manchester United signed him for £39 million last summer. Unfortunately, due to the financial hit, there was no money to buy him and Ajax eventually sold him to United. However, in the first season, Donny van der Beck made only four Premier League starts and was not taken seriously by Solskjaer.
Although Solskjaer insists that Van Der Beek has a bright future ahead of him. However, unless Pogba leaves, he will struggle to find a foothold in the Dutch midfield. Now, Real Madrid have offered to take Van Der Beek on a one-year loan for a £2 million fee, before buying him out in July 2022.
The Daily Star reports that United’s demand is that Real Madrid must buy out Van Der Beek after 12 months and pay the £35 million transfer fee the Red Devils have already paid for him.
Last year, Ajax also asked if they could take Van Der Beek back on loan, but the offer was rejected as they were not willing to include a buy-out clause.
Van Der Beek was recently one of the models for the new training kit released by Manchester United, taking various training photos at Carrington. While van der Beck himself would like to stay at United for a regular first team place, the fact that United are happy to negotiate with Real Madrid suggests that his future may lie elsewhere.
In the past, United have loaned players to Real Madrid on a number of occasions, none more famous than ‘Little Pea’ Hernandez. But the Mexican shot-stopper was unable to complete a permanent move despite scoring seven goals in 23 La Liga games in a single season.
As for player deals between Manchester United and Real Madrid, there have been even more. Beckham, Vanni, Heinze and Carlo all landed at the Bernabeu from the Red Devils. At one point United also tried to sign Spanish shot-stopper Morata from Real Madrid. But with Florentino Pereira demanding £90 million, the Red Devils snapped up Romelu Lukaku from Everton, who would have returned to Chelsea.
Interestingly, the Manchester United players who joined Real Madrid were all successful. This might be good news for Van Der Beek, who would likely have more opportunities to play if he could join Real Madrid. The player’s style of play does not suit Solskjaer’s tactics, but is more in line with the La Liga style. Ancelotti has an ageing Real Madrid midfield in general and Modric in particular. The manager is also better at using people and Donny van Der Beek has a chance to prove himself by getting more chances in the starting lineup.
