Man Utd man unsuited to Premier League and told to look for January exit as Ronald de Boer thinks Donny van de Beek may have to look for a January move and suggests his style of play may not be best suited to the Premier League.

Van de Beek’s game time has been fleeting this season. The 23-year-old signed for £35m, plus £5m in add-ons in the summer but he has made just eight starts, of which only two have come in the Premier League.

Monday’s edition of De Telegraaf in his homeland stated that if he didn’t get a start against Manchester City then he may as well pack his bags.

Well if the Dutch star, who was benched v City, follows that advice and that of De Boer then he could be heading out of Old Trafford this month.

De Boer is worried about Van de Beek’s predicament and told AD (via Sport Witness): “The European Championship is coming, he will undoubtedly want to be there.

“Maybe it would be good for him to discuss with the club exactly what they want with him. If the view on playing time does not improve, he may have to declare that he should be rented or even sold.

Van de Beek style not suited to PL
“You have to be lucky every now and then. Of course it doesn’t look great now, but with a great performance it can suddenly change completely.

“We also don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. Perhaps they have made certain agreements with his transfer, they will get him ready for next year this season. That always remains a bit of a guess.”

De Boer, 50, who made his name with Ajax also suggested that the Premier League may not suit Van de Beek’s style.

“I think his playing style is better suited to the Spanish league than to the English.

“In the Premier League it is often run and fly, in Spain more combination football is played. Donny is physically fine. But he comes into his own better in the Ajax game.”
