Donny van de Beek makes Manchester United transfer decision



New Man United signing Donny van de Beek has now made a decision on his future at Old Trafford amidst calls for him to leave the club as a result of lack of playing time.

The Dutch international joined Manchester United back in the summer transfer window for £40 million and he has not been favoured with more than four starts this season, leaving him redundant, despite the hype upon his coming to England from Ajax.

Several pundits, including former players, have asked him to seek an audience with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his role at the club and advised that a move away could be a better option.

It is now claimed that Donny van de Beek has decided to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place, to cool off interests of a move away to Italian Serie A outfit, Inter Milan.

Ole Gunnar Soslskjaer has made it clear that the decision to play Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes ahead of the 23-year-old is the need for time to settle in England.

Solskjaer defended Van de Beek prior to his side’s clash with Watford on Saturday, saying: “I’ve answered this question so many times.

“There’s so many examples of players needing a little bit of time, quality players. We have many examples ourselves and there are other clubs with examples. Sometimes it takes time.

“You don’t expect people who care for him to be quiet at times, especially when they want the best for them. I’ve spoken to him and reiterated and made him aware of how much we rate him.”

However, Donny Van De Beek has made his decision to stay, with claims that he is happy enough with life at United and doesn’t want to be seen as ‘giving up’ should he secure a loan move away.

Now, all speculations should now be laid to rest as he is now out of the list of those expected to leave the club this summer transfer window.

Tim Fosu-Mensah is on his way to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, while Argentine pair Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo will be allowed to depart as well, with the duo not making a single league appearance this season.

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
