Man Utd star urges agent to 'force' exit

English Premier League

A Manchester United star has reportedly instructed his agent to get him out of the club in the January transfer window.

Donny van de Beek has tough time in Manchester since joining the club from Ajax Amsterdam, having started just 19 games since arriving in 2020.

The Dutch midfielder has parted ways with his long-term agent Guido Albers and has since joined up with Ali Durson, who also manages Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

The Mirror have now reported that Van de Beek has instructed his new agent to find him a new club in January after struggling for game time this season.

Van de Beek's previous agent was unable to get the midfielder's loan move to Everton over the line after Solskjaer intervened in the final days of the transfer window.

Former United midfielder Paul Ince has criticised Solskjaer for not using the Dutch midfielder this past two seasons.

"If I’m going to buy a player, a top player from Ajax, the first thing I’m going to say is, 'Am I going to play? Where do you see me fitting in, within the system, within the team?'

"He’s got £35million sitting on the bench.

"I can hold my hands up if I’m on the bench and the team are winning and playing well. You can’t tell me that Fred and [Scott] McTominay are playing well week-in and week-out, and even [Paul] Pogba because they’re not.

"But he seems to play them all the time, and I’m sitting there watching them play, I would be livid.

"He’s been professional, he’s done everything by the book. Ole’s come out saying he’s in my plans... he has to move in January for the good of his career."
