Van de Beek is said to be “upset” with his current situation at the Red Devils, as per the Manchester Evening News.

The site claims the Dutchman feels “misled” by his game-time during his second campaign in Manchester, with him yet to start a Premier League game for the club this season.

Van de Beek will be hoping he’ll be allowed to leave Old Trafford this month in order to play regularly and put his name in contention for a place in the Netherlands’ World Cup squad.

However, reports from the MEN suggest that the Eagles face competition from a number of other teams for the 24-year-old’s signature, and no talks have been held between United and the interested parties.

In addition, the Mirror claims the Red Devils are reluctant to let the midfielder go during the winter window, as they could need him if another Covid-19 outbreak occurs at Old Trafford.

Before his arrival in Manchester, van de Beek was a regular for his former club Ajax.

During his spell in his homeland he made 175 appearances, scoring 41 goals and assisting his teammates on 34 occasions.
