Donny van de Beek changes agent ahead of January transfer window

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has switched his agent ahead of the January transfer window.

De Telegraaf and Voetball Primeur both report Van de Beek has parted ways with representative Guido Albers.

Van de Beek is now represented by Ali Dursun, who also is the agent for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof.

Dursun’s clients also include Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, Van de Beek’s former Ajax teammate.

New start for Van de Beek

A change of agent can indicates a player anticipates making a potential transfer at the next opportunity.

Van de Beek has only played five minutes in the Premier League this season, and so it would be understandable if he chose to leave.

The Dutchman’s only saving grace could be if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sacked – which presently seems quite likely.

It would still be smart for Van de Beek to keep his options open.

In the summer his agent attempted to engineer a deadline day move to Everton, Sky Sports reported.

But a potential move was simply discussed too late, and there was never any realistic possibility from United’s side of letting him go.

A chance may come at United

Van de Beek could be in line for more chances at Manchester United over the coming weeks.

The midfield combinations of Fred, Scott McTominay, and occasionally Nemanja Matic have not been working.

The same applies to Paul Pogba, who is now suspended for the next three matches.

Van de Beek is likely to get a shot to show what he can do while Pogba is out.

Although, we also would have said it was likely Van de Beek would have more than five minutes of league action this season by now.

His future may rest on Solskjaer being fired.
