Valencia ‘looking at a loan’ for Donny van de Beek, an outcast of Manchester United…
- Valencia is interested in signing Donny van de Beek on loan from Man United
- The LaLiga side could reportedly start looking for the Dutchman in January
- But they can ask United to pay some of his massive £100,000 a week wages
- Van de Beek has not been given playing time at Old Trafford since joining 2020
Donny van de Beek could be loaned to Valencia in January, according to reports, after the Dutchman failed to secure regular playing time at Manchester United.
The 25-year-old, who arrived at Old Trafford in 2020 for an eye-watering £40million, struggled to embed himself in Eric ten Hag’s first team, making just four appearances this season in all competitions.
According to TodoFichajesLaLiga side Valencia are interested in bringing the midfielder to the Mestalla stadium in January but could ask the Red Devils to cover part of Van de Beek’s huge wage bill of 100 a week.

Valencia is reportedly looking for some new players, with a midfielder appearing to be Gennaro Gattuso’s priority.
And it looks like Van de Beek could follow former team-mate Edison Cavani to the Spanish club, who came to Valencia on a free transfer in August and is in good form, scoring four goals in six league games.
Still, rumors of Van de Beek’s future have been bubbling for some time, with Leicester reportedly considering a £13million transfer for the midfielder, while AC Milan also sniffed at his availability earlier this summer.

Last season he was loaned out to Everton for part of the season, where he played seven times for the club
The Ajax academy graduate got off to a good start in Manchester, playing 19 league games in his first season with the club, but has since appeared just 54 times in just three seasons.
He was also loaned out to Everton for a season, where he helped the club avoid relegation, but towards the end of the season he struggled with injuries and made seven appearances for the Toffees.
This season has been the same for the United man, who came back into the fold against FC Sheriff in the Europa League last Thursday after being sidelined for several weeks with a muscle injury.

After helping them secure a convincing 3-0 win on Thursday, Ten Hag admitted that the midfielder still has a role to play in his team in the future.
“Donny came in the last part and he also had some good positions between the lines. I think that combination was good,” he said after the game.
“He was a long time out, I was happy to give him some minutes because you need that to get into the right form. He had to work himself back.
“He hasn’t been in training for a week, just like Harry Maguire, so I was very happy to give Donny and Harry minutes, because we’ll need them in the coming weeks.”
