Toon offered Donny van de Beek on loan
Reports from the Manchester Evening News claim Newcastle have been offered the chance to sign Donny van de Beek on loan from Manchester United.
German side Borussia Dortmund have also reportedly been contacted over the Dutch midfielder.
Since arriving at Old Trafford, Van de Beek has really struggled for consistent playing time. Last summer, there were rumors that he would complete a loan spell at Everton. But instead he stayed at Man United.
On Twitter, people tweeted “#FreeDonny”, in a show of support for the Dutchman. Some football fans want to see him give a chance elsewhere and show off the talents we’ve seen at Ajax before.
Away could help Van De Beek return to Dutch side
With minimal playing time at Man United, Van De Beek would look to move away to get more regular minutes. There is no doubt that if he were to move to Newcastle, he would definitely be in the starting XI.
Since joining Manchester, the 24-year-old has fallen out of favor with his national side. Netherlands boss Louis Van Gaal hasn’t chosen him on the last three occasions. The World Cup is on the horizon, so Van de Beek will want to make sure he can fly to Qatar.
However, Man United manager Ralf Rangnick apparently not 100% sure in the midfield he wants to settle with. Maybe in the future he will want to welcome the Dutch international. Moreover, it’s tough competition for Newcastle to clinch his signature with Dortmund also in the mix.
In the final 30 minutes of the FA Cup draw against Aston Villa, the midfielder came off the bench and impressed Rangnick. The German boss changed the game plan when Donny arrived and they controlled more of the game.
He would be a great signing for the Newcastle midfielder. Some fans would be delighted with a potential loan.
But landing Van De Beek will be difficult as it is unclear whether or not he will be allowed to leave Old Trafford. And even then, Dortmund’s potential appeal could push him towards the Bundesliga.
However, this time around Newcastle have more of a financial pull, so perhaps a deal is not as far off as we think.
