Manchester United outcast changes agent as he seeks January move

Donny Van De Beek in the cold

Since his move to Manchester United from Ajax 18 months ago, it is safe to say that Donny Van De Beek has failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him.

Perhaps more worryingly, he has not had the opportunity to do so, making just 17 starts for the Red Devils.

Indeed, a damning stat of his lack of game time appeared during the humiliation of Manchester United by Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, with the Merseyside club having scored as many goals in the game as Van De Beek has played minutes so far this season,

As a result, it seems clear that should the manager not change, Van de Beek will be looking to depart the northwest of England in January in search of regular first-team football, and rebuild his previously promising career.

Van de Beek changes agent

In pursuit of his move away, Van De Beek has changed his representative, as per Dutch outlet VI. Previously represented by Guido Albers, he is now represented by Ali Dursun, who is also the representative of Barcelona star Frenkie De Jong.

With Barca looking for risk free moves this January as they look to recover from a stuttering start, combined with Ronald Koeman’s preference for Dutch players and van de Beek and De Jong sharing an agent, could the United man be angling for a move to Catalonia this January?
