Donny van de Beek to Manchester United is edging closer and the Dutch midfielder is a bit of a bargain at the reported $55 million transfer fee, as he’s completed his medical according to our partners at Sky Sports.
What will Van de Beek, 23, bring to the party in Man United’s midfield?
It is perhaps not an area that Man United really needed to strengthen, with Nemanja Matic, Fred and Scott McTominay in the holding areas and Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Andreas Pereira in the more advanced central midfield roles.
So, why sign Van de Beek? He does a little bit of everything very well and is very versatile, plus he is on the same levels as Pogba and Fernandes and the others just aren’t. The Dutch international scores goals, creates chances and links up midfield and attack with fluid movement and is keen to get into the box and join the attack whenever he can.
