Manchester United outcast close to an exit – €10 million clause agreed

According to BILD, Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is close to sealing a loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt. Reports throughout this week have linked Donny with a move to Frankfurt, however there was a sudden acceleration in the talks yesterday. Several reports in Germany claim that a deal is almost done.

The reports further claim that Frankfurt will only pay around €1.5 million in wages Donny. He will forego much of his salary to ensure that a loan move can happen.

Manchester United will pay 60% of Donny van de Beek’s wages

One report indicated that Manchester United would be paying 60% of his wages while he was on loan in Germany. Another report claimed that Frankfurt won’t be paying anything for the loan either.

Frankfurt have been pushing for a purchase option to be included in the loan deal. BILD confirm this as they now state that a deal for him is ‘perfect’ and will include a purchase option for ‘just under €10m’.

Furthermore, Manchester United will pay ‘large parts’ of Donny van de Beek’s €8 million salary during the loan. However the Dutchman has reduced that considerably so that Frankfurt only have to pay him around €1.5 million until July 2024, and thus don’t need to break their wage structure.

This could be the perfect move for Donny

Donny van de Beek joined Manchester United in 2020, but never got his fair share of opportunities. His career has only gone downhill since joining the Red Devils. In his 3 years at the club, he made only 62 appearances, which were mostly off the bench.

The 26-year-old desperately needs a move away from the club to get his career back on track. A move to a team like Frankfurt could be perfect for him, if he manages to play regularly. Given the German club’s eagerness to sign Donny, it looks like he will get good gametime.

A medical has now been booked in for the beginning of next week, with Frankfurt determined to get the Manchester United man in the squad for January 2nd when they return from their winter break.
