Van de Beek questions continue

The questions over the signing of Donny van de Beek by Manchester United continue.

Until their late splurge on deadline day, the Ajax midfielder was the only summer arrival at Old Trafford.

However, the Dutch midfielder had only played twice for the club since his arrival at the club, both in the EFL Cup,before his appearance in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with many wondering why he was bought when United already had so many midfield options.

There has been speculation that the 23-year old was signed by Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward against the wishes of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and that explains the Norwegian’s reluctance to use him.

Despite that Solskjaer insists that van de Beek will be very “important for us” this season.

Nevertheless, buying a player for £35 million to warm the bench seems an unnecessary luxury, especially if it means that either Bruno Fernandes or Paul Pogba would need to be dropped to accommodate him.
