Manchester United have signed midfielder Donny van de Beek and a lot of fans are unable to contain their excitement following the club’s tweet announcing the transfer.
The Dutchman’s statistics show that he had a very good season in 2019/20, as he managed 10 goals and 11 assists in all competitions whilst averaging 1.9 shots, 1.8 key passes and two tackles a game, per WhoScored – this shows that he can make a big impact throughout the pitch.
According to BBC Sport, the 23-year-old has signed for £35m, plus £5m in add-ons, on a five-year contract, adding to a glitzy midfield which also contains Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes. Van de Beek racked up 21 goal contributions last term whilst Pogba managed four in 16 games and Fernandes totalled 15 for United, per WhoScored.
It is clear to see why a lot of United fans are excited by the signing and it will be interesting to see how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lines up for the 2020/21 season.
Here is what these fans said following the confirmation of Van de Beek’s arrival at Old Trafford:
