Man Utd’s Van de Beek Set for Eintracht Frankfurt Medical in 24 Hrs.
Van van Beek joined Old Trafford with a lot of hype, but he hasn’t left a lasting impression. He came from Ajax.
The Netherlands international has only made 62 appearances in all competitions, with just two goals and two assists in that time.
Van de Beek has only played in 323 minutes of games since Erik ten Hag took over as coach at the beginning of the 2022–23 season, despite the fact that he was hindered by a significant knee injury that he suffered at the beginning of the previous year.
Van de Beek was eligible to return around the end of September, but since making two substitute appearances during that period, he has not participated in any games.
It has long been rumoured that the 26-year-old will be let to leave the Theatre of Dreams when the time comes, as United is believed to need to improve their standing with FFP.
Moreover, Ten Hag has admitted that after failing to provide his Dutch colleague more opportunities in the senior ranks, his compatriot is likely to take up a new challenge abroad.
Van van Beek’s standing in the hierarchy is so great, according to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, that he is permitted to finish a transfer to Frankfurt this week.
Romano claims that the two teams have officially accepted the terms of a loan move, which will involve Frankfurt having the option to purchase Van de Beek, as he initially disclosed last week.
Frankfurt will reportedly pay €11 million (£9.47 million) should they decide to activate that provision, with an additional €4 million (£3.44 million) coming in add-ons later.
Within the next 24 hours, Van de Beek is scheduled to get a medical with the Bundesliga team. If everything goes well, it is assumed that he won’t be joining United again.
Before the January transfer market opens, United still has Premier League games against Nottingham Forest, West Ham United, and Aston Villa.
All of these players—Sofyan Amrabat, Scott McTominay, Kobbie Mainoo, and Hannibal—are currently ahead of Van de Beek, while Casemiro and Mason Mount will make their injury returns in the upcoming weeks.
