Donny van de Beek ready to ask Solskjaer awkward questions after latest blow

Donny van de Beek hasn't had a season to remember to this point.

He was signed by Manchester United from Ajax in the summer transfer window, and was expected to feature heavily in the Red Devils' midfield alongside Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

But the £35million acquisition has been largely left out of the action at United.

And Scott McTominay's recent good form – in some ways a new blow for Van de Beek – means this isn't going to change anytime soon.

Late last year Holland great Ronald de Boer spoke to AD and suggested Van de Beek confront Solskjaer and ask him what is expected of him.

"Euro 2020 is coming, he will undoubtedly want to be there," De Boer said. "Maybe it would be good for him to discuss with the club exactly what they want with him.

Dimitar Berbatov shared this sentiment, also instructing Van de Beek to speak to United chiefs to clarify his position at the club.

It's unclear whether Van de Beek took the advice on board, but former Manchester United striker Berbatov believes the awkward conversation can only be put off for so long and that it is destined to happen at the end of the season.

"McTominay's success is not good news for Donny Van de Beek," Betfair ambassador Berbatov said. "I don't see the situation changing for him any time soon unfortunately. He will get a game or two in different competitions and I'm pretty sure he isn't happy with the situation.

"I'm expecting that he will have some talks with the club at the end of the season because I don't think he will want to start next season the same way.

"It's unfortunate and sometimes football is like that, I would like to see him play, but at the moment I just can't see that happening.

"Maybe I'm wrong and he'll get more game time and he plays more. But it goes to show that you don't always need to buy players."
