Donny van de Beek is a player linked with a move to Leicester in January. With constant talk of a Youri Tielemans departure in the next transfer window, this looks as an exciting addition.
The Dutch international has in no way managed to cement a place in the Man Utd first team and his chances has not really been given at all since moving from Ajax in 2020.
Last season Everton became an option, joining in January on a loan, playing only 7 games in all and scoring once. His tally is 20 league games at Man Utd, he has scored 2 goals.
Still a young player at the age of 25 and of course one soon reaching his peak years as a footballer. He is eager to keep his place in the Dutch international set up and add to his 19 caps, making his debut as far back as 2017.
Before joining Man Utd, he was seen as a possible player to join Real Madrid and other major clubs in and around Europe showing fantastic skill during his days at Ajax. He made his Ajax debut at the age of 18 away to Celtic in November 2015.
A link up player with a huge future given the correct job in the team and not being pushed in to different positions as you will not see the talent of van de Beek flourish.
He is relatively tall at 1.84m and his best role is just behind the top forward as other central midfielders needs to cover for him defensively, but still a massive talent given time and opportunities.
Leicester has previously shown with Danny Drinkwater that they can nurse forward a Man Utd talent and push him for international honours and a sensational transfer fee.
