Dimitar Berbatov believes Donny van de Beek is running out of time at Manchester United. The former Red Devils star claims the Dutchman looks lost at the club but is hoping he has a good chance at Old Trafford.
Van de Beek has had a tough time at Manchester United since joining them last summer. The Dutchman has barely started games and mostly makes substitute appearances in the Premier League.
Manchester United surprised fans with a decision for Danny van de Beek last summer, but the Dutchman never got a chance to prove himself. Dimitar Berbatov believes the club made a mistake in signing the Ajax star but hopes he will have his chance soon. He told Betfair:
“Donny van de Beek looks lost. The midfielder is running out of time to save his career at United. He started against Young Boys but was substituted at half-time. It’s his story. move to club. If he plays he is out. If he comes in he gets 10 minutes. He never gets a chance to settle down and show what he can do. It just doesn’t work for Van de Beek. It’s a shame because United paid a lot of money for him. But that’s what happens when you spend money just to keep your fans happy. I always hope he gets lucky, but it’s going to be very difficult for him and the club can decide to cut their losses, if they can. “

“Is Solskjaer’s job in jeopardy after the defeat in Switzerland? Come on, you can’t be serious. United have played four Premier League games and won three. A Champions League defeat does not jeopardize the Ole’s job. I see no point in discussing Solskjaer’s future so early in the season. “
