EPL: Ten Hag blocks midfielder from joining Man Utd’s rivals

FA Cup: It’s not an embarrassment – Ten Hag insists after win over Coventry

Guido Albers, the agent to Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek, has claimed the club is not willing to sell the player to another Premier League club this summer.

Red Devils boss, Erik ten Hag, brought the 27-year-old from Ajax in a £40 million deal in 2020.

But he has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford. The midfielder is now expected to leave permanently at the end of this season.

Van de Beek has spent the second half of this campaign on loan with Eintracht Frankfurt, but the Bundesliga side will not take up an option to buy for £9.5m.

“I came to an agreement with Frankfurt for him. Frankfurt still had an option until June 30, which they will not exercise.

“Officially he is now going back to Manchester United and I am now in discussions with him.

“Donny does not want to stay in the Premier League, also because United do not want that. That is not a good choice for him. He needs to return to a club that plays good football. In any case, he will not return to Ajax.

“My preference was to look in Spain, Italy or France,” Albers told ESPN.
