Manchester United is aware that the possibility of recovering the investment they made for Donny van de Beek is slim. The midfielder, who was acquired from Ajax in 2020 for a fee reported by Sky Sports to be £34.6 million, has not lived up to the high expectations set upon his arrival in the Premier League.

Despite the initial excitement surrounding his transfer, van de Beek has struggled to secure a regular place in the team, both under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his successor, Erik ten Hag, despite previously working under ten Hag at Ajax.

The 26-year-old Dutch international has found himself on a series of loan spells, the most recent of which is with Eintracht Frankfurt. Having joined the Bundesliga side in January, van de Beek wears the number 25 jersey and has a chance to make the move permanent if he makes a significant impact. A deal has been set at £9.4 million for the transfer, a figure significantly lower than what United paid, signifying a substantial loss.

Football Insider has now reported that Manchester United is prepared to offload van de Beek should Frankfurt express an interest in retaining him after this season. This would entail a considerable financial loss of around £25 million for United. Despite not scoring for Frankfurt yet, van de Beek has participated in five matches, starting four of these in the league.
