Manchester United in talks with Real Sociedad to sell forgotten £40million star

Manchester United are reportedly in discussions with Real Sociedad to sell Donny van de Beek this summer. The 26-year-old midfielder joined United from Ajax three years ago in a deal worth £35 million plus £5 million in add-ons. However, his time at Old Trafford has been plagued by limited playing time and sporadic appearances.

Van de Beek made a memorable debut for United, scoring off the bench in a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace. But since then, he has struggled to secure a regular spot in the starting lineup, making just four Premier League starts in his first season. Most of his appearances have come as a substitute.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United are now in talks with Real Sociedad about a potential transfer. The club’s ability to make further signings this summer reportedly depends on player sales, and Van de Beek could be one of the players to make way.

Last season, the midfielder suffered a knee injury that kept him out for half of the campaign. However, he has featured in pre-season matches for United, scoring one goal and providing two assists in four appearances.

Van de Beek may not be the only midfielder leaving United this summer. West Ham has shown interest in Scott McTominay, and United is said to be demanding £40 million for his transfer.

It remains to be seen how the transfer window unfolds for Manchester United and whether Van de Beek’s struggles at the club will come to an end.
Manchester United are reportedly in talks to sell their forgotten star, Adnan Januzaj, to La Liga side Real Sociedad.

Despite an initial flurry of excitement on the youngster’s arrival to Old Trafford from Anderlecht in 2013, Januzaj’s development has stagnated, and he now looks set to depart from the Premier League giants.

The Belgian international cost United £7.5 million five year’s ago, but is now reported to be departing for a fee of £8 million, less than a quarter of his original asking price.

Januzaj’s time at Manchester United was beset by problems both on and off the field, which both hindered the star’s performances and saw him fall down the pecking order.

Manager Jose Mourinho has made the decision to cash in on the player before his value begins to drop further, with La Liga side Real Sociedad thought to be on the brink of securing his signature.

Failing to make an impression in the first team, Januzaj found himself limited to loan spells at both Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland in the past two seasons and will no doubt be keen to seek out a new challenge across the continent.

Januzaj’s career at Manchester United has ultimately been a huge disappointment, with both parties seemingly keen for an amicable resolution to the £40 million winger’s situation. An announcement of the expected transfer is likely to be made in the coming days.
