Through the summer transfer window, Manchester United once again showed its limitations in purifying its force. The media confirmed that attractive offers have been sent to Old Trafford for Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay, two players who do not play an important role in coach Erik Ten Hag’s plans. But in the end, Man Utd still cannot say goodbye to these stars.
It cannot be denied that Man Utd has liquidated a number of “leftovers”, but the transfer fees they collected are not really appropriate. Typically, in the case of Fred and Dean Henderson, the Red Devils only earned less than 25 million pounds from selling these two stars outright. Meanwhile, they are also ready to let Eric Bailly leave for free and accept a “white loss” of 30 million pounds.
Another example is Donny Van de Beek, who cost Man Utd 39 million pounds but never proved his worth. In fact, De Beek also felt frustrated with the situation at Old Trafford and planned to leave in the summer, but in the end, he was still a Man Utd man. However, there is still time for the Red Devils to try to find De Beek a new destination. and this is also a move that they should strive to implement.
In contrast to most major European tournaments, the transfer window in Türkiye is still open until this Friday (UK time). And before that, the media also confirmed that De Beek is receiving interest from two “big men” in Super Lig, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray. Notably, Man Utd has also just successfully recruited Altay Bayindir from Fenerbahce, so they can fully take advantage of the good relationship between the two clubs to push De Beek away.
Although not as noisy as Saudi Arabia, another country in Asia, Qatar, is still considered an attractive destination for top stars this summer. Most recently, Marco Verratti also chose the Qatar Super League as his destination, and for De Beek, being able to play regularly in this tournament will obviously still be better than the prospect of sitting on the bench throughout the entire season. at Old Trafford.
It is important to know that Man United’s list of 25 players participating in the Champions League does not contain the name De Beek, while the chance for him to play regularly in the Premier League is also very low when facing completely new competition. , from Sofyan Amrabat and Mason Mount. In general, whether it is a loan or a permanent sale, Man Utd should find a way to get rid of the Dutch star from Old Trafford while time allows, and this is definitely a decision that benefits both sides.
