On Almiron, he added: “He's brilliant. I've watched his first goal a few times, and I'm still unsure how he managed to guide that into the net.

Manchester United man deemed surplus to requirements after Newcastle United snub

Hide Ad

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has been deemed ‘surplus to requirements’ at Old Trafford.

The Dutch midfielder had struggled at Man United following his £40million arrival from Ajax in 2020 but was set to be given a fresh start under new manager Erik ten Hag.

Van de Beek enjoyed a successful spell at Ajax under Ten Hag but has been limited to just 19 minutes of competitive football for the Red Devils so far this season.

It is now being claimed that Van de Beek’s time at the club could be coming to an end with Ten Hag deeming the 25-year-old surplus to requirements.

Back in January 2022, Van de Beek was a loan transfer target of Newcastle United seeing first-team opportunities limited at Manchester United.

But the midfielder turned down the chance to move to Tyneside temporarily given The Magpies’ perilous position in the Premier League table at the time as he opted to join Everton instead.

It’s unclear where the 19-time Dutch international’s future lies, but it’s unlikely Newcastle will want to reignite their interest in a player who had previously turned them down in their time of need.
