Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor, has urged Manchester United to sell Donny van de Beek in the January transfer window.
Agbonlahor claimed that Man United are trapping Van de Beek at Old Trafford, adding that the midfielder’s situation at the club is ‘turning into a joke’.
Van de Beek joined Man United from Ajax for £40m in the summer of 2020.
The Netherlands international has endured a difficult spell at Man United, falling out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
He is yet to start a league game for Man United so far this season.
Asked whether he thinks Man United will let Van de Beek leave in January, Agbonlahor told Football Insider:
“I think they will.
“It’s turning into a joke now. United need to just let him go and play football. You are trapping him at the club and not giving him any minutes.
“With the performances of Fred and [Scott] McTominay, Van de Beek deserves a chance to show what he can do.
“Manchester United need to let him go in January and play some football. The kid just wants to play football.
“He needs a run of games. Not just the occasional 60 minutes. Give him a run of games.”
