Donny van de Beek makes a decision and definitively chooses Everton
Donny van de Beek will finish the season on a rental basis at Everton , The Athletic and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano report. The 24-year-old midfielder of Manchester United finally decided on Sunday to temporarily continue at Goodison Park, it sounds like. Everton will take over the full salary of Van de Beek until June, who is fixed at Old Trafford until mid-2025. No purchase option has been agreed, because Manchester United want the successor of interim manager Ralf Rangnick to decide on the future of the Dutchman.
Van de Beek is the first addition to Frank Lampard, who will almost certainly take over from the recently fired Rafael Benítez at Everton. In the run-up to this season, Van de Beek was already on the list of number sixteen in the Premier League, but a definitive deal did not get off the ground six months ago. It now seems that Everton will still do business with Manchester United, although both clubs have yet to confirm the interim transfer.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently reported that Crystal Palace had good papers to temporarily take over the reserve player from Manchester United. According to Sky Sports , Dennis Bergkamp has personally contacted Palace to personally recommend his son-in-law. Bergkamp played for many years at Arsenal with Patrick Vieira, the current manager of the Eagles. Everton, however, is the new club of Van de Beek, who was also mentioned at Newcastle United and Valencia during this transfer period.
Everton’s interest in Van de Beek accelerated due to the injuries of midfielders Abdoulaye Doucouré and Fabian Delph. The duo has been out of circulation for at least a month with various injuries. Meanwhile, Lampard’s arrival at the Toffees seems only a matter of time. Various English media report that the former Chelsea player and manager will be appointed at Goodison Park this Sunday.
Manchester United will in any case not cooperate with an option to buy in a lease with Everton. The club wants to ensure that it will have Van de Beek in the 2022/23 season. The midfielder is urgently looking for playing time, which is not available at all for the Old Trafford midfielder. This season, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick, he did not go further than 380 minutes.
