Three Italian clubs have set their sights on signing Donny van de Beek from Manchester United this summer, a report claims, with AC Milan one of them.
Van de Beek only joined United for £35m (€40m) from Ajax last summer but has so far struggled to adapt to life at Old Trafford, making just 19 Premier League appearances in total and just three starts. There have been rumours that the 24-year-old has become frustrated at a lack of opportunities and at a crucial stage in his development too.
According to FcInterNews, the Red Devils paid €44m to land him but the adaptation to the philosophy of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not gone smoothly, which of course has not been helped by the fact the Dutchman has had a few physical problems. Manchester United awaits interesting offers, with Milan, Inter and Roma all keen and having enquired about them
In the player’s mind the priority goes to the Premier League or to an important club in LaLiga and that’s where his entourage are probing. Italy remains a second choice, but if the ideal conditions were created then Milan could pounce.
