According to The Sun, Newcastle United want Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek.

Van de Beek is exactly the type of player Newcastle should be after. He’s a talented footballer who should be very attainable – after all, he’s barely playing any football at Old Trafford.

Interestingly, van de Beek is a player that is highly rated by Marc Overmars who has, of course, been strongly linked with a move to St James’ Park in recent weeks.

What’s been said?

Overmars worked with van de Beek at Ajax and he had some kind words for the midfielder when he left the Dutch outfit.

“Last summer, there was a lot of interest in him but, luckily, we were able to keep him at Ajax for one more year. In the months that followed, he proved very valuable to us in both domestic and European competitions,” Overmars told Ajax’s official website after van de Beek left.

“He has now been a part of the Ajax first team for almost 5 years. He is ready for this step and we will miss him.”

Coup

Van de Beek is certainly too good to be warming the bench in the Premier League, so this could be a great move for Newcastle.

Yes, he’s not made much of an impact at Manchester United, but let’s not forget, this is a player who played a huge role in Ajax almost reaching a Champions League final back in 2019.

He’d be an instant upgrade for Newcastle’s midfield, and who knows? Perhaps his arrival would make Overmars have a second look at moving to Tyneside.
