Arsenal willing to pay €25m for frustrated Manchester United star

Arsenal is willing to take advantage of Donny van de Beek’s frustrations at Manchester United to sign him.

They have been on the trail of the Dutch midfielder since he was on the books of Ajax and have continued to follow him.

He is struggling to play for United at the moment and caused a small scene by throwing his chewing gum on the bench after being snubbed in United’s 2-1 win over Villarreal in the Champions League.

Todofichajes says he has become too frustrated at Old Trafford and now wants to leave in the next transfer window.

This plays right into Arsenal’s hands and the Gunners are willing to take the next step and table an offer for him.

The report says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had promised him more minutes at the club this season if he stayed, but he has barely played 50 minutes of football so far.

This, coupled with his attitude in midweek, has made it easy for him to force a move away from the club.

Arsenal is looking to take advantage and the Gunners are reportedly willing to offer €25M for his signature.

Mikel Arteta’s summer signings have looked impressive and that will give the club’s hierarchy the confidence to trust him with even more signings and Van De Beek could make the trip from Manchester to London in the new year.

    I’d take him anyday

    A good player, would make sense if we offloaded any DM/CM in Jan.
    At 25M €, is he the best choice?

    1. Kedar says:

      Yeah…
      He is decent box to box CM

  3. Yossarian says:

    Could work. Remember Kevin De Bruyne at Chelsea? He was rubbish. At Man City he’s one of the best players in the world. Might be worth a punt to see if this guy works better under Arteta than under OGS.

  4. Bob says:

    I’d take him for a decent price like that at 24. There’s a reason Man U went for him even if he didn’t succeed there.

    Is ths rumour likely I ask myself and comeup with the answer, VERY UNLIKELY!

    He would fit MA s youngerplayer policy but the fee, even at £25mill will prevent,it IMO.

    Lets face it, purely statistically, all rumours on THIS site are statistically almost zero chance of ever happening.

    Once the main news media regularly predict it , THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL I GIVE IT REAL CREDIBILITY.

    Trouble with JA s constant rumours are its like the boy who cried wolf. No one much believes ANY of them!

    1. siamois says:

      Very unlikely indeed!

  6. Dhoni says:

    I will also take him but it will mean Elneny going out. He was on the radar of Real Madrid until Man U convinced him to join, young and exciting prospect, fits our now transfer policy.

  7. siamois says:

    Very unlikely indeed!

  8. Sean says:

    100% bring him in. Elneny will be leaving us, freeing up a space (wages too) and Donny is a creative player in the middle of the park.

    Ascensio I read we are looking at, would be an interesting attacking option when Laca & Eddie leave. Belotti from Torino is in his last year, we should strike a deal for him.

    Just hope we are smart and now let Saliba & Mavraponas return, sell Mari & Holding to Join White & Gabriel as our CBs, Ballard also there to come back.

    Bellerin, Matteo, Leno, Kola & Soares may all be gone next summer also.
    Ramsdale has got the no1 position and I believe we should bring up to no2 spot in Arthur Okonkwo.

    next summer dreaming; (23players)
    GK – Ramsdale & Okonkwo
    RB – Tomiyasu & (New Back up)
    CB- White, Gab, Saliba, Dino & Bullard
    LB – Tierney & Taveres
    Cm- Partey, Lokonga, Xhaka, Donny
    AM – SmithRowe, Ødegaard
    RW – Saka & Pepe
    LW – Ascencio & Martinelli
    CF – Auba, Belotti & Balogun

    Donny – £24m
    Belotti – £0 – Big wages, Lacas wage.
    Ascensio – £30m

    Azeez, Bullard, Patino, Hart or any other u21 will all be available to this squad. After we have this team built each window after that may be one or two big signings each time.
