Donny van de Beek has posted the first images of him back at Carrington.

The MEN reported this week that the Dutchman was back training in Manchester, along with Anthony Martial.

Both players are recovering from injuries and are being eased back into pre-season, while the rest of the squad is training in Surrey ahead of the weekend friendly with QPR.

Van de Beek is back out on the pitches doing ball work in the hot Mancheser sunshine.

His pre-season is just beginning

Van de Beek and hopefully Martial will rejoin the main group next Monday when they all return to Manchester.


A midweek friendly at home to Brentford could see Van de Beek involved. If not, he could feature the following Saturday away at Preston.

Van de Beek missed Euro 2020 with a groin injury which affected his last three months of United’s season. The rest has hopefully done him some good.

The Dutchman’s first season at the club was disappointing due to a lack of game time. He made just four Premier League starts.

His start on the final game of the league season in a victory at Wolves was an encouraging performance, and hopefully he can pick up where he left off and turn his United career around.
