Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals why the club signed Donny van de Beek


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solsjaer has revealed why the club signed Ajax star Donny van de Beek.

Donny van de Beek completed his move to United last week after both clubs agree on a fee of £40 million for the highly-rated Dutch midfielder.

With over 118 Eredivisie appearances, Van de Beek recorded a total of 28 goals and 24 assists making him one of the best youngsters in the league and with that stats, United couldn't resist bringing such a player to the club.

Speaking with BBC Radio 5 Live, Solskjaer has now revealed why the club went all out for the 23-year-old and why he thinks the versatile midfielder will improve his side in the coming season and years to come.

‘When we signed Bruno Fernandes, we knew we needed that kind of player, now we’ve signed Donny and he’s a type of player I felt we needed in the squad,’ Solskjaer said

‘He’s the type of person that will fit the culture, fit the team, and will improve us next season and for years to come.'

‘Donny is a versatile player, a very intelligent, clever player.'

‘He’s got loads of energy, enthusiasm, developing all the time.'

‘He scores goals and we need to add goals from midfield.'

‘Our forwards scored quite a few goals last season, Bruno came in and scored goals but we need goals throughout the squad because we didn’t score enough to be challenging at the top.'

‘He’ll add his creativity, his reading of the game, his understanding of the game. He can see space and arrive at the right time.'

‘The timing of his movement is fantastic.’
