Man Utd’s Donny van de Beek: Everton remain interested in midfielder after summer inquiry

Everton director of football Marcel Brands: “At the beginning of the transfer window, we inquired at United, then it was impossible”; Donny van de Beek has made only four Premier League starts since his arrival at Manchester United.

Everton attempted to sign Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek in the summer, according to their director of football Marcel Brands, who has not ruled out another move in the January window.

Netherlands midfielder Van de Beek has struggled to break into the first team at Old Trafford since a £39m move from Ajax in the summer of 2020 and Brands wanted to revive the player’s career at Goodison Park this season.
