Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is facing one of his biggest challenges so far in his career since he signed with the Red Devils back in 2020. The Dutch footballer arrived as a promising young star that had won everything with Ajax, but, unfortunately, his time at Old Trafford hasn’t been what he expected.

He didn’t play much time when Ole Gunnar Solskjær was the manager, when he was sacked and Ralf Rangnick took charge of the team, he was loaned out to Everton for the last six months of last season. However, his time at the Toffees was also a disappointment as he only played 7 games with the Merseyside team.

This summer he returned to Manchester United to reunite with his former manager at Ajax Erik ten Hag, with whom he had won everything in the Netherlands as he was a crucial part of the managers’ success at the Amsterdam club. This was perceived by Donny as a great opportunity for him to finally succeed with the English giants.

Sadly, this hasn’t been the case. During pre-season, van de Beek played some matches and was looking good, but once the season started, he hasn’t really played that much under Erik ten Hag. After five games, the 25-year-old midfielder has only been on the field for a total of 19 minutes, being subbed in the final minutes of the matches to kill time.

Last chance

Donny van de Beek knows that if he doesn’t make it to the team with the manager that made the best out of him at Ajax, then his Manchester United career will be over. Unfortunately for him, it looks like the United shirt was too big for him to handle, but he won’t give up yet. Hopefully, he will become a regular starter and finally show his skills.
