Donny van de Beek reportedly remains keen on leaving Manchester United in the January transfer window, despite receiving assurances from Ralf Rangnick. Van de Beek is considering his options this month because he does not believe more opportunities are likely to be on horizon at United.

The 24-year-old midfielder is yet to start in the Premier League this season and has not seen his game time increase since Rangnick took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on November 29.

Van de Beek joined United from Ajax in a transfer worth £35million, plus £5m in add-ons, back in September 2020.

He has struggled to make an impact at the club ever since and has cut a frustrated figure on the United substitutes’ bench for much of the past year.

Having made just four Premier League starts in the entire 2020/21 season under Solskjaer, the Dutchman hoped Rangnick might reignite his career at Old Trafford.

But that is yet to happen, with two brief sub appearances and a start in the Champions League dead rubber against Young Boys all he’s been handed by the German.

According to ESPN, Rangnick has told Van de Beek that he wants to keep him this month, but the midfielder is still open to other opportunities, given eight of his 12 appearances this season have come from the bench.

Van de Beek received similar assurances of game time from Solskjaer and he is reportedly weary of putting all his eggs in one basket.

He has been dropped from the Netherlands squad by manager Louis van Gaal and is desperate to win his place back through his club performances.

The Qatar World Cup is approaching at the end of the year and Van Gaal has made it clear he will only consider those who are playing regularly for their clubs.

Van de Beek changed his agent back in November and is open to leaving United permanently or on loan in January.

Everton have previously been linked with Van de Beek, while Newcastle are another possibility, with Eddie Howe desperate for reinforcements to avoid relegation.

Although they want to keep him, United will look at any loan offer presented to them by Van de Beek’s camp.

There are a few barriers to his exit, however, because Rangnick would be given the final say and any suitors would have to pay a loan fee and cover his wages until the end of the season.

Rangnick is aware of several unhappy players inside the United dressing room, but he is weary of thinning his squad too much this month due to Covid and injuries.
