According to the Manchester Evenings News, Newcastle United’s new owners have been offered the chance to sign Donny Van de Beek on loan.
The Dutchman sealed a £35m move to Old Trafford 18 months ago, but has been handed a mysterious lack of game time by both Ole Gunnar Solskjær and new boss Ralf Rangnick.
The latter has failed to hand him a single Premier League start this season and only eight minutes of top flight action since he took the job at the end of November.
MEN also report that Borussia Dortmund have also been sounded out about a potential loan move this month for the former Ajax star.
It’s no surprise to see that the 24-year-old midfielder is pushing to leave the club in search of some much needed game time, with him facing a race against time to win his place back in Holland’s side ahead of the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
This would be a brilliant signing if we could pull it off. There’ll be plenty of competition, but he could add goals, energy and creativity to a midfield in need of some new life.
