Manchester United midfielder, Donny van de Beek, has made up his mind to leave the club in January, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Dutchman has found game time in rare supply, following his £34 million move from Ajax last year.

Van de Beek wanted to leave the Theatre Of Dreams during the summer, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave him reassurances that he has a future with the club.

But with no obvious improvement in sight, Fabrizio has revealed that the former Real Madrid target is now keen to leave to a club where he’ll play more.

Van de Beek is hopeful to sign with a club in Spain or Italy, although Newcastle are believed to be interested in his services too. Real Madrid wanted to sign the midfielder in the past, but it’s unclear if they’ll rekindle their interest.

With three years remaining on his deal, United will feel they have the upper hand in the situation, and it’s hard to know if they’ll be willing to sell or it would be a loan deal, especially with a new manager potentially coming in soon.
