Former Premier League star Paul Stewart has been left unimpressed by the form of Donny van de Beek at Manchester United.
The Netherlands international has struggled immensely during his time at Old Trafford following his move from Ajax.
The Red Devils paid £35m to bring the midfielder into the club from the Dutch giants last summer but he has yet to make any real impact under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Has Van de Beek been treated wrongly?
Van de Beek made 19 appearances in 2020/21 but just four of those were starts, and he completed the 90 minutes just three times.
It remains to be seen what will happen with the Dutchman this summer, and he could well decide to move on after such a poor start to his career at United.
He has even been suggested as a potential target for Liverpool, as they look to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, who has agreed a move to PSG.
But Stewart, who had a spell at Anfield as a player, does not see a reason for the Reds to bring Van de Beek in.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “Van de Beek has not really proved anything in the Premier League yet, has he?
“I thought when he was coming to United, he was going to be a really great acquisition. Normally they come out of Ajax and they’re straight on the scene and they’re great players.”
