Fabrizio Romano reveals what Arsenal think about signing Man Utd flop

Fabrizio Romano has delivered an update on Arsenal’s rumoured interest in Manchester United midfielder, Donny van de Beek.

The Dutchman moved to United last summer from Ajax and Arsenal was one of the clubs that wanted to sign him when he was with the Dutchmen.

He has been struggling for playing time at United since he joined them and he could change clubs this summer.

Arsenal has been rumoured to be interested as the Gunners look to add new players to their squad this summer.

After losing Martin Odegaard and Dani Ceballos, they have been tipped to sign new midfielders for their squad this summer and van de Beek might be a useful squad member to have.

However, Romano was speaking on his Here We Go Podcast recently and the Italian journalist made it clear that Arsenal has no interest in the Manchester United flop at the moment.

He said: “Rumours about Arsenal are not true, he is not going to Arsenal.”

Van de Beek has seen his stock fall sharply during his time at United.

He is currently valued at €30 by transfermarkt, a serious drop from the €55m he was worth as of 2019.

  1. Hmm i actually think his pretty good when he was on, his purchased was abit strange for man united cause they already have so many players for that position.

  2. Would be a good suit to partner with Partey @arsenal but Arsenal cannot Spend 30 million euros, will probably wait for a few more years to have him for free after his contract is done with United.

  3. At €30 million Van de Beek would be worth a punt; however would Manchester United sell to Arsenal?
    No problems in testing the water.

  4. I dont think he will be a success at Arsenal, given he seems to struggle in PL games. Pereira of WBA and Bissouma/Neves should be our real targets.

    1. Arsenal should buy all three or four (including Van de Beek), given the current standard of the midfield.
      There are a number of suitable candidates, yet Arsenal is unable to choose at all, let alone “choose wisely”.

  5. Remember that Inter flop Arsenal picked up some years ago and became a club legend. A gamble and a genius move. I think his name was Bergkamp. I haven’t seen this Van den Beek play so it’s hard to for me to gauge his potential, but I do remember some of the raps he was receiving during Ajaxs Champions league run. As mentioned above could be worth a punt.

    1. 👍 “The best transfer Arsenal has made, or is ever likely to make.” (Ian Wright on Dennis Bergkamp).
      If only others had turned out so well!

    2. @joe
      Can you have at least a bigger sample instead of just a sample of one or two in 25 years..

      We have had more than 20 years since then.. what other name in that period?

  6. The player is actually quite decent, but has never been remotely given a fair crack at United. Van de Beek would be a good signing – at the right price.
