It has been a very good week for all associated with Manchester United as they managed to sign highly rated midfielder Donny van de Beek.
Many have been wondering what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans are to utilise the player as they already have plenty natural attack-minded central midfielders in Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba and reporter for the Telegraph Mike McGrath has provided an update on what the United manager has in mind for next season.
Utdreport tweeted out via the reporter that Solskjaer feels like he will be able to field Van de Beek in the same Red Devils midfield as Pogba and Fernandes next season.
This should excite supporters even more as the trio together will be a menace for opposition defences as between them they managed 17 goals and 15 assists in their domestic leagues last term, per WhoScored.
However, some fans are sceptical and are suggesting that they would need a more defensive midfielder in the 11 such as Nemanja Matic, in order to add some balance.

I saw this coming, the fan base has influenced this man 😂. I don’t know how that midfield will cope off the ball & once again we’re killing the bench.
Greenwood & Van De Beek coming on as subs will scare teams.

I will luv to see how he plans to do that effectively…if it clicks it is going to be one of the most dangerous.
