Manchester United ‘could end Donny Van de Beek’s nightmare Old Trafford career in less than a YEAR through a swap deal with Juventus for Adrien Rabiot’
- Manchester United are reportedly in talks to fire Donny Van de Beek
- Van de Beek, 23, is being touted in a proposed swap deal for Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot
- The Dutchman has only made two Premier League starts for the Red Devils
The beleaguered Manchester United star Donny van de Beek is reportedly in line for a swap deal with Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot.
The Red Devils are ready to close the door to Van de Beeks United career and would like him to be an intermediary in their pursuit of Rabiot, said Tuttosport
Van de Beek has gone through a scorching time since arriving in Manchester at the start of the season, failing to make the first team despite a much vaunted £ 40 million move from Ajax.

The Dutchman, 23, has made just two Premier League starts for Manchester United this season
The Dutchman made only two starts in the Premier League and has been kept out of the squad by the sensational form of Bruno Fernandes.
Juventus were among the clubs United to beat with Van de Beek’s signature, and there is hope that despite his lack of playing time, they will remain interested in the 23-year-old.
Rabiot would move to Old Trafford as part of the deal. The Frenchman came on a free transfer to Juventus in 2019 after his contract with PSG expired. He played 25 games in Serie A this season, scoring twice.
Earlier this week, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was willing to give Van de Beek more minutes after returning from international service, where he scored in the 7-0 demolition of Gibraltar through the Netherlands.

“Donny scored some absolute crackers when we were all back in training on Friday,” said Solskjaer.
‘He scored some absolute top goals that I would be very proud of and it has done him a lot of good, leaving and scoring a goal for the Netherlands.
“We hope that we can see a lot of that in the next eight weeks of the season and then get back to work.”
Juventus are also reportedly trying to raise money through the sale of several players, including Rabiot, suggesting that a swap deal may not be quite to their liking without a hefty financial sum.
