Man Utd midfielder Donny van de Beek must leave in January if he is ignored after Eriksen injury blow

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek must leave the club in January if he continues to be ignored by manager Erik ten Hag after Christian Eriksen’s injury.

Eriksen suffered a knee problem in the recent 1-0 Premier League win over Luton Town and the club has confirmed that he will be out of action for a month.

Now along with him, Casemiro is also on the sidelines with a hamstring issue. Ten Hag has already revealed that he won’t return to competitive action until after Christmas.

Injuries for the duo could directly benefit Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat. The former will be aiming to get regular starts, having had a difficult start at United.

Prior to suffering a hamstring injury, the England international was a consistent starter at the start of the campaign. Although he has previously made appearances off the bench, this should be his opportunity.

Meanwhile, United have a forgotten midfielder in the squad in Donny van de Beek, who has not even made the matchday squad in the last six games for the club.

Following his return from a knee injury, the Dutchman had been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the previous summer; however, there were no strong proposals for him to consider.

The decision to stay has not proved worthwhile with just 21 minutes played this term thus far.

Van van Beek now gets a position in the matchday squad due to Eriksen’s injury and will be hoping for some minutes after the break because he is a creative central midfield player.

If that is not the case, it looks illogical for him to continue with the club knowing that he has no future. A loan exit with a buy clause could be United’s best solution to offload him this winter.
