'Van De Beek Doesn't Fit At United'

Former Netherlands star Rafael van der Vaart feels his countryman Donny van de Beek does not fit in at Manchester United and should consider leaving.

Van de Beek joined the Red Devils from Ajax Amsterdam in September 2020, but only started four Premier League matches in the 2020/21 campaign, and was used sparingly across all competitions.

There were questions raised about the Dutchman's transfer when it was confirmed as United already had Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba as guaranteed starters in a similar position, and Van der Vaart feels Van de Beek should leave Old Trafford, saying a club like Borussia Dortmund would be better suited for his compatriot.

"He (Van de Beek) fit perfectly into the Ajax system, but he doesn't fit at Manchester United," the former Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur star told ESPN.

"If nobody leaves United (this summer), he will be lucky to get in the starting line-up.

"He is far too good to sit on the bench for two seasons. He needs minutes very quickly. He is still young, but time flies.

"A club like Borussia Dortmund would have been a better step for him. Manchester United might be a step too far for him."
