Football insider has been speaking on the latest edition of his Here We Go podcast to discuss all things transfer-related.

One of the players which the Italian discussed was Manchester United midfielder Donny de Beek, who has played just six minutes in the Premier League this season (via Transfermarkt).

Would de Beek be a good signing for Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It is reported the Toffees tried to sign the midfielder during the summer transfer window, with director of football Marcel Brands admitting: “We had him on our list.”

The Dutchman signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2020 from Ajax for a fee believed to be in the region of £35.1m, however, he has failed to hit the ground running in England.

Over the course of the 24-year-old’s senior Ajax career, he provided 75 goal involvements in his 175 appearances, whereas at United, de Beek has just three goal involvements in 39 appearances (via Transfermarkt).

Discussing the Dutchman’s future at the Theatre of Dreams, Romano had the following to say on a potential departure in the January transfer window, as he appeared to imply that Everton could still be interested.

“This is my personal opinion, talking about de Beek’s situation, in January he will leave if the situation will continue like this.

“So he wants to play football. So this is why in January he has huge chances to leave if the situation will continue like this. Then you know in football sometimes you have an injury for another player, he’s playing and this changes the situation. So he’s not sure yet, but if it’ll continue like this, yes.

“And I will keep an eye on Italian clubs, yes, and also English clubs – because Everton were interested during deadline day. There are many opportunities for de Beek, but he wants to be 100% sure about his next step if he will leave Manchester United after spending two years waiting to play and not playing.”

TIF Thoughts on de Beek…

We think it is a real shame de Beek has failed to be given a real shot in the United squad under Ole Gunnar since arriving last summer.

Having signed last summer, Van de Beek has played the full 90 minutes in the Premier League on just three occasions and a total of 517 minutes since the start of the 2020/21 campaign (via Transfermarkt).

The Dutchman arrived in Manchester after reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur and three impressive seasons in the with Ajax.

Having seen what he is capable of at Ajax and the clear lack of game time in the league already this season, we think it is essential Van de Beek finds a move in January.
