Why would Donny van de Beek sign for Manchester United? | Premier League

  • Published: 08 January 2020
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering a January move for Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek, sources have told ESPN, with the Norwegian pushing executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to secure reinforcements for his Manchester United squad this month. ESPN FC’s Craig Burley, Alejandro Moreno and Dan Thomas ponder whether the Dutchman should make the move to the north of England but Burley says Man United aren’t the same attraction they used to be under Sir Alex Ferguson.

    This show wants united to fail so badly

      Honestly, at this moment, as a player it is more appealing to stay at Ajax footballwise than to join ManU, unless you're all about the money

          As a Chelsea fan, I have to say, stop selling to rival clubs. Very rarely give us anything back but tapping up accusations. Okay, Matic move was genius, but Alonso.... No way

            So morons, How did Liverpool signed Mane, Countinho, Suarez when they hadn't won a single thing in almost 3 decades. Utter bullshit.

              Vd Beek and Ziyech will move to another club after this season. Ajax played great in the CL this year and were very unlucky not going through. The are one of the favorites in the EL. And Ten Hag just confirmed that no players will leave Ajax in the winterbreak.

                Why would anyone want to sign for Manchester United anymore. Newcastle United syndrome is here to stay

                  if ajax loves Donny, they would reject any Man Utd bid unless there is change at Man Utd's management

                      What do these pundits want. One day they say united need to sign 6top quality players the other day they say why would those players join united.

                          A big problem in all of this is the media, if united aren't still the attraction they once were then stop talking about us and talk about Liverpool's awesome season or Lampard's cracking job at Chelsea etc. Stop linking players to us knowing full well they're going elsewhere just because it gets clicks or sells papers.

                              I was under the impression Man Coty couldn’t sign him due to the number of non-British players already in their squad. Singing him hinged on selling Sane and another of their centre-halves

He wasn't good enough for the Premier League and yet he sits there trolling ESPN for his salary and the rest of the internet with absolute tripe. Seriously ESPN, raise your game and put this clown on the transfer list. SMH.

Man U in recent years have fallen from a great height which I believe will take them at least another 5-10 seasons to get back there , why would any young take t want to play for this shambles ?

Since then, Utd have signed Pogba, Sanchez, Lukaku, Maguire and AWB who, however you may rate them, were being pursued by multiple other big clubs at the time.
                                                                                        Despite all the excessive doom and gloom from Utd haters on these talk shows and in the comments, Utd still remain a club that will attract talent for a number of reasons:
                                                                                        1. There are British players out there for whom Utd are still the dream club
                                                                                        2. The epl is still an attractive league and City and Liverpool can only buy so many players. As we speak, there are talented players going to Westham, Everton, Wolves etc. When was the last time those clubs finished above Utd?
                                                                                        3. Transfer fees and Wages - Utd can compete with any club and there will be players that, outside the top 5 clubs, no one else can afford
                                                                                        4. As bad as things are, people can see a new direction at Utd and there will be players who buy into it. I’m sure Dan James and AWB could have gone to a dozen other teams but they chose Utd.
                                                                                        5. Most teams that are unquestionably more attractive right now mostly have established starters. If I’m a budding talent (Grealish, Maddison etc) and are looking for a bigger stage, would you rather go sit on the bench at City or Liverpool of go to a rebuilding giant and be potentially an integral part of the revival

                                                                                        We’ve seen Liverpool go through bad spells in their recent history and yet they continued to attract quality players throughout.
