Former Dutch football legend Ronald de Boer has debunked rumours of Van de Beek asking to leave Manchester United saying there’s ‘NO TRUTH’.
Since joining Manchester United in a £35million five-year contract with United, with an option for another year, Van de Beek has struggled for regular game time in his first season in the Premier League and there have been several reports already linking him to an exit from the club.
But speaking about the Dutch man’s future at Manchester United, Ronald De Boer rubbished those claims citing that Donny is happy at Old Trafford.
According to De Boer who shares the same agent with Van de Beek, the 23-year-old has not asked to leave Old Trafford per the conversations he has had with Ajax and his agent.

However, it is true that he is not happy about his lack of game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and could evaluate his future at United in the summer.
“I spoke to Ajax and they said there’s no truth in it at all. He didn’t ask to speak to them,” De Beor said in an interview with talkSPORT.
“He’s just focusing on his recovery on his ankle, and it’s not true that he asked Man United to leave.
“His agent also told me that of course he’s not happy that he’s not playing. He’s only had two starts under Solskjaer and that’s not what he hoped for when he joined Man United.
“He’s not worried, of course he wants to play every game. But he’s not worried that he can’t succeed.
“He has to have a review after this year, asking where do I stand? Do I have a possibility to succeed here or not? Otherwise, I have to make a move.
“We will see where he’s heading next year, maybe he stays at Man United or maybe another club is interesting for him. “But he’s not panicking at all, he told the manager he’s so happy at Man United because the club is one of the best in terms of how they treat him, he feels loved.”
