Donny van de Beek ‘changes agent’ as Man Utd misfit 'looks for January transfer away from Old Trafford'

DONNY VAN DE BEEK has changed his agent to increase his chances of leaving Manchester United, according to reports.

The midfielder has played just six minutes of Premier League football this season despite getting assurances about his game time from Ole Gunnar Solskajer in the summer.

Van de Beek, 24, is said to be frustrated at starting just four league games since he arrived at Old Trafford last year.

And after failing to secure a loan move last summer – with Everton reported to be interested – the Dutchman has taken matters into his own hands.

According to Dutch outlet Voetball International, van de Beek has appointed Ali Dursun as his new agent, replacing Guido Albers.

Dursun looks after van de Beek's team-mate Victor Lindelof, as well as Barcelona stars Frenkie De Jong and Martin Braithwaite.

And van de Beek will hope his new agent can succeed in finding him a new club before the January transfer window opens.

Barcelona are rumoured to be interested and Juventus have also been linked with a move in January.

Solskjaer confirmed his player is unhappy, saying: "At the moment it is hard, I understand Donny is frustrated, he is disappointed.

"I know he is not happy but he is a top professional. He doesn't let himself down and he knows this is how it works in football."

Some United players have reportedly questioned why van de Beek is not being picked despite impressing in training.

Pressure is mounting on Solskjaer to start picking up results, though it remains to be seen whether he will begin to place a bit more trust in van de Beek.
