Former Manchester United player Dimitar Berbatov has revealed he won’t be surprised to see Donny van de Beek leaving Old Trafford for a new challenge.
The 23-year-old joined the Red Devils for around £40 million during the summer transfer window. Since then he has been restricted to only 762 minutes of first-team action from his 20 appearances in all competitions.
Amid the limited playing time at the club, Berbatov believes the former Ajax star may already be considering a move away from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
“I don’t know what is going on with Donny van de Beek – I said before he signed that I like him as a player, he was great for Ajax and his national team, but now he can’t get a game at United,” he said.
“I can see that his confidence isn’t high at the moment, and that’s normal because when you don’t play you start punishing yourself and ask questions of yourself. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is starting to look for the exit and nobody will blame him. Something isn’t working.”
