• Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes has been the team’s star in the past few months
  • Securing a backup midfielder is crucial for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team
  • Ajax’s Donny van de Beek is reported to be a worthy prospect for Manchester United

The roster of Manchester United is regarded as deep with players such as Bruno Fernandes leading the charge. It will be vital that they further improve their lineup with capable players coming off the bench. One option to consider for the club is Ajax midfielder, Donny van de Beek.

The 22-year-old holds promise and can provide as a strong fit for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, per Fansided’s Red Devil Armada. As an attacking midfielder, several teams have already scouted van de Beek as a high-value talent on the field. Clubs such as Real Madrid and Barcelona have already been linked to the young star before. While nothing has yet been finalized, this only proves how worthy of an asset the former Dutch Cup winner is.

With van de Beek developing as a consistent performer for any team, his market value is currently estimated to be at 44 million Euros. The way he plays on the field backs up this figure as he’s served in a total of 175 games for Ajax and has scored 41 times to go along with 34 assists. In 23 appearances in the latest Eredivisie season, he’s managed to notch eight goals and tally six assists. Out of most of these matches, van de Beek put up major minutes as he started 22 times.

It is pivotal for Manchester United to make the best economic decisions for the team given the financial impact of the recent global pandemic. Securing a worthy backup for Fernandes will prove to be beneficial for the Old Trafford-based squad given how he’s proven to be a worthy star of the team. If Manchester United’s roster is able to sustain its synergy as a club then the potential to succeed remains as high as ever.

With Paul Pogba revitalized as a worthy partner for Fernandes, Solskjaer’s team has a lot to look forward to in the years to come. Developing players such as Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are slowly maturing into top performers as well and securing someone like van de Beek further enhances their lineup.

It will be interesting to see how Manchester United plays the upcoming months in terms of the talent they’ll be able to secure. Whether they’re able to free up space and land a prominent star soon, their team is doing whatever it takes to ensure Fernandes is surrounded with competent talent.
