Manchester United suffered from a lack of success in the transfer window this summer. Finally, United swooped in to complete the signing of Dutch wonder kid Donny Van De Beek. The former Ajax player played an important role in the dream Champions League run back in 2019. Manchester United attempted to sign the player last season but nothing concrete occurred. Donny spoke to MUTV in an exclusive interview.

Historic connection

Van De Beek is United’s 13th Dutch player and United have a phenomenal history with Dutchmen. Moreover,Sources claim that club legend Edwin Van Der Sar helped in speeding up the deal.

“Yes, it’s a really big history. I watched a lot of their matches before and I also had a really good meeting with the coach [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] and that for me was a really important thing. We talked about football things, about the club and I always make decisions about my feelings and my feelings were directly good with everything. That was for me an important thing.”

Career Progress

Every young boy dreams to play in the Premier League for on of the biggest cubs on Earth and Donny just completed his lifelong dream. Additionally,It would be a joy to see him alongside Pogba and Bruno. The Dutchman finally made the next step in his career after playing for Ajax since his academy days. Van de Beek talks about the transfer.

“First of all it’s really nice. In my career it’s a good time to make a step to a nice club. I think I have made a really decision to join this amazing club. I have heard all the stories from the old players, including Edwin [van der Sar], our old director, and Daley Blind, my old team-mate, and I cannot wait to play for the club.”

Style of Play

It is quite essential to understand a footballer’s style of play to make sure he fits in right into the club. Van de Beek is a midfielder, who prefers taking up advanced positions up the pitch. Further,He excels in making defence splitting passes, something that we require at United. Donny himself describes his style of play.

I’m a midfielder that likes to go into the box – making runs, goals, assists. A lot of the time, I cover a lot of distance in games, this is also a thing that is a strength for me, to get into the box of the opponent.”
